Hi everyone,In this tutorial I am going to explain how to make a beautiful Wedding Bouquet. I am pretty excited about this tutorial so let’s get started.
- 40 mm(width) Pale green Ribbon,
- 40 mm(width) yellow silk ribbon (you can pick the colour that matches to the wedding theme),
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks,
- green tape,
- Lighter or Candle,
- thread and needle,
- spherical foam,
- Foil roll.
Step 2.1: first option ,we can make use of the whole foam ball Press the foil roll into the ball firmly. Apply glue to one end of the foil roll. Stick ribbon to the foil and keep rotating so that the foil roll is completely wrapped in ribbon. Snip the excess ribbon.
Step 2.2: second option , is to cut the foam ball into a half then press the foil roll into the flat surface of the half ball firmly. Apply glue to one end of the foil roll. Stick ribbon to the foil and keep rotating so that the foil roll is completely wrapped in ribbon. Snip the excess ribbon.
Step 3: cut about 10 cm of green ribbon ( I am making 16 of them depending on the diameter of the foil roll).
Step 4: First take one ribbon, bring the ends together make a running stitch. When you are half way through fold and add the second ribbon and continue the running stitch. Keep repeating this process.
Step 5: now once when you finished adding all the ribbons. Pull the thread through tightly, attach both the end to each other forming a ring.
Step 6: Now bring the ribbon ring that we just made through the foil just as shown below.
Step 7: Now lets begin with making the flowers for the bouquet.For making petals cut 10cm length ribbon.First fold the ribbon just as shown in the following pictures.
Step 8:Hold the angled corner using tweezers and scissors cut a triangle shape, singe the ribbon with lighter or a candle. If you are under 18 do not make this attempt with out supervision.
Step 9:Repeat step 8 for the other side of the ribbon.
Step 10: You may end up with all the flower petals ready. I am using some of my pre-prepared leaves (they are optional).
Step 11:Apply a drop of glue in one corner of a petal and keep rolling inwards as shown below, keep rolling the petals. Now this will be our flower centre piece.
Step 12: Now take one petal at a time and stick one on top of other using glue. I keep on sticking more and more petals until I feel happy about the size of my flower.
Step 13:Glue the centre piece of the flower and stick the petals firmly. Keep rolling the bud inwards and keep applying drops of glue to keep the petals in place.
Step 14: our flowers should look just like shown in the bellow picture.
Step 15: Now apply glue on the bottom of the flower and start sticking from the middle of the foam ball. (You can always mix and match the colors).
Step 16:Our final touch to our bouquet will be sticking the leaves randomly to cover any visible gaps.
