Skill level:Moderate

Things you need

Plastic jewelsHot glue gunDecorative paperRibbonStyrofoam ball

Instructions

1 Purchase synthetic flowers in the colour(s) of your choice, and attach crystals or jewels to the petals so that the bouquet will sparkle as you walk down the aisle. Using a hot glue gun, apply a small amount of glue to the jewels and press them against the petals to set. Allow the jewels an hour or so to dry. Wrap the stems of the flower in ribbon, using velvet for fall or winter ceremonies, and satin for a spring or summer wedding, and glue a large jewel in your wedding colour to the centre of the ribbon to be easily displayed as you hold the bouquet.

2 Create a ribbon bouquet by bonding elegant ribbon materials together in the shape of your choice. Tie the ribbon into bows of varying sizes, or purchase pre-tied ribbon from the local craft store. Bond the ribbon pieces together with the hot glue gun. Use synthetic or real flowers to wrap around the bouquet in your alternating wedding colour for added texture and design. Use a long piece of ribbon to tie the bouquet around your wrist to hold it in place if it is not too large.

3 Compile a collection of buttons, bottle caps, and brooches for an antique-style bouquet that your guests will never forget. Mix metal and stone elements to make the bouquet stand out against your wedding dress, such as an opal button positioned in the centre of a large metal bottle cap. Using a hot glue gun and styrofoam ball in the size of your choice for moulding, mount the items on wooden pegs with hot glue and stick the pegs in to the ball. Cut velvet or satin ribbon in the shape of leaves or flower petals, and glue these to the outside of the styrofoam ball, so that the bouquet will appear to be blooming. Stick another peg at the bottom of the ball in the length of your choice, and wrap it in ribbon to carry the bouquet down the aisle.
