Now this is not a new thing for me. I made one for my own wedding just over a year ago.
Well I have been meaning to make another bouquet for a while because they are very pretty and I am a sucker for things that are pretty.
But what material to use?
Then it dawned on me what to use. A couple of years ago I went to a vintage kilo sale and brought 5-6 scarves for the purpose of making kanzashi from them. How about making a unique bouquet from one of those scarves?
So the scarf I choice a navy blue and cream dotty one.
I was a little bit eager with the rotary blade so I forgot to take a picture of the original scarf but the black and white one shows you the size of the one I used.
Now I had to decided on the the type of flower to make. Normally I make medium size five petal flowers but this time I wanted to go all out and make kiku or crysthanamum. However not one large but seven little ones!
I had to find out what the seven kiku look like so I make a casually arranged them into a bouquet to see what they look like. The look very pretty!
With some extra white flower and accents this will turn into a lovely unique bouquet!
Here is a closeup of one of the flowers.
