This is the perfect wedding bouquet; it will never wither, you can keep it and pass down for generations, it's cheap to make and you can even make it out of the same fabric as your wedding gown to match perfectly. You can make it in any fabric you want: felt for a more folklore style, jeans for hippie and maybe black and red velour for a gothic wedding?

I have made mine a bit vintage with ash rose and olive green silky fabric and some lace trims. You only need small amount of fabrics and  trims. You could also use some vintage trims from your family or add a detail from your parent's or grandparent's weddings.

Step 1: Things you will need

*some kind of fabric for the roses-30cm and leaves and bottom part - 25cm
*a styrolit cone, mine was about 20 cm high
*short pins
*lace and trimmings for decoration (I didn't use everything on the photo)
*fusible interfacing (something that will stiffen the fabric if you're using thinner fabric like I did)
*sewing machine (you could do this by hand though)
*some kind of glue, I used a glue gun (make sure to use a glue that doesn't dissolve the styrolit)
*scissors, needle, thread

<p>thank you! just what i was looking for!! :)</p>
i love this.. i was thinking of making one as a bedroom decoration, so pretty x
Thank you. That is a great idea. I always kill my plants way too fast, so this might be one of the few options for me :) Let me know how it turns out.
This looks amazing. Love it. Really like the colours you have chosen. Wondering if it would work with different shades of roses or if that would end up looking messy. Can't wait to try. Just waiting for the right bride to come along!
