How To Make a Pearl Bridal Bouquet
STEP 1: The first step is to cut out a center circle in your 5-inch styrofoam ball. Then add hot glue to your bridal bouquet holder and attach it to your styrofoam ball. Next, attach your 1 1/2-inch satin ribbon to your bridal bouquet holder using hot glue.
Embellish your bridal bouquet base
STEP 2: Apply E6000 to the base of your bridal bouquet holder, and then add your pearl embellishment stickers. To finish it off, add ivory pearl balls to the base.
Add your organza ribbon.
STEP 3: Cut a 5 to 6-inch strip of organza ribbon, fold it in half, and then fold it like a fan. Next, attach it to your foam ball with your floral pin.
Pull the ribbon down and fluff it out, so it covers where the handle and the ball are attached. Continue this pattern all around the base. Use pearl balls to cover up the floral pins and the space in between.
STEP 4: Attach the second row of organza using 4-inch strips of ribbon completing the same steps that were completed in Step 3.
Cover your foam ball with ivory pearls
STEP 5: Create a border for your pearl embellishment by adding pearl balls around your foam ball above your organza ribbon. Now take your ivory berry cluster stem apart, keeping the stem about a 1/2 an inch in length.
Apply E6000 to the ivory pearl stem and then insert it into your foam ball, sure to start at the center of your foam ball. Continue this step until your entire foam ball is covered.
Let’s add some bling to our bridal bouquet.
STEP 6: Take a pearl button and attach 22-inch gauge floral wire to your button using hot glue. Cut the wire down with wire cutters before attaching.
THE FINAL STEP!
STEP 7: Use the pin part of your brooch and insert your brooch into your foam ball. Then use the same floral wire to secure your brooch to your foam ball. Attach the remaining pearl button embellishments to your foam ball!
