Kanzashi-inspired Bridal Bouquet

Posted on: August 28, 2013

So, in my last post I told y’all that I was going to be making my bridal bouquet.  I’ve got maybe 1/2 of the flowers “pieced” together and thought I would share them with you.  I’m using the Kanzashi makers from Clover …in the round petal 2- and 3-inch sizes. I had a bunch of Dupioni Silk in some nice jewel-y colors. A trip to Joann Fabrics netted my some other “fancy” fabrics.

Here is what I’ve got so far:

Some 2-inch flowers. The centers are different sparkly buttons. My sweet groom has been in charge of bending the flower wire in half and twisting in the buttons for me. I haven’t glued them in, yet. That’s on the schedule for tonight.

Some 3-inch flowers. I know some of them look a little mal-formed. The great thing is that I will be able to manipulate them so they look better. Also on the schedule tonight is to cut and glue on the backings for the larger flowers.

Thanks for looking!
