Pick up flowers from the florist the morning of the wedding and all you need is five minutes to create a gorgeous handheld wedding bouquet.
Bind the flower stems with a thin rubber band to secure the stems tightly together. Use scissors to cut off the bottom of stems to your desired length.
Wrap the flower stems in plastic wrap to get a nice smooth edge all around, stop about 1-1/2” from the bottom of the flowers. This is optional, but it definitely adds a nicer finished look.
Pin one edge of the ribbon to the bottom of the flowers.
Start wrapping the ribbon around the flower stems, moving your way up with the ribbon as you go.
When you get to the top of the plastic wrap or where you want the ribbon to end. Cut the ribbon and fold the ribbon edge under 1/4” and pin in place.
You may finish here with a nice gorgeous handheld wedding bouquet or you can add a bow. Simply tie a 24” piece of ribbon around the upper edge and make a bow. Cut and finish ribbon bow edges with Fray Check.
