Wedding Bouquet DIY
A few weeks ago, I was about to throw my wedding bouquet in the trash. I got married 1 ½ years ago, and didn’t want to throw it away, but it just kept sitting on my dresser collecting dust and looking worse and worse by the day.
I couldn’t quite bear to toss it, and then one of my friends told me about the following idea, and I knew it would be perfect for me to do!
First, I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some clear glass 4” ornaments. [I wanted something that had a wide opening.] I got it home, took the top off, and got started.
Second, I dismantled my bouquet and cut off the flowers, berries, and leaves.
I then took my flower pieces and put them into the top of the ornament, being careful not to squish them on the way in.
After I filled it up, I put the top back on the ornament, and voila! I have a wonderful keepsake for my Christmas tree this winter. It’s so great, because now I have my bouquet preserved, and it’s not sitting around collecting dust anymore.
