I started with a bag of ribbons saved from her showers, styrofoam ball, flower stakes, floral wire, a bouquet base found in the bridal aisle of Michael's and a glue gun.
I glued the styrofoam ball to the floral base and stuck the stakes in the bottom.
I looped the ribbon around, adding a drop of hot glue on each end and then twisted a little wire around (similar to the tissue poms).
Then I proceeded to stick the ribbon into the styrofoam.
Ooo, it's starting to take shape
I still wanted it to have some of the classic rehearsal bouquet look, so I glued curly ribbon to cover the tulle.
And to finish it up, I wrapped the "stems".
And here's the final product from the front. (As you can see there was more purple Bed, Bath & Beyond ribbons, than green Pottery Barn)
And the back.
And here it is in action at MOH Navy's rehearsal.
Will you have a bouquet at your rehearsal? Have you put together one for another bride?
