DIY Bouquet & $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!

DIY Bouquet & $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!


I’m so excited that I was able to team up with 4 fantastical bloggers to bring you a a $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway, woo-hoo! Before I get to that I want to share a photo of one of the projects I have been working on recently, a DIY fabric wedding bouquet.

I know I haven’t posted much these past couple of weeks, but things have been extra hectic since we leave next Thursday to get ready for our North Carolina wedding.

I sorta decided last minute that I really wanted a fabric wedding bouquet, ya know because I don’t already have enough on my to do list πŸ™‚ Here she is!


I will likely make a few more tweaks before the big day, but overall I’m pretty happy with it being my very first attempt at a DIY bouquet, and now I just need to finish putting together those for the bridesmaids. What do you think? I will be posting the tutorial after our wedding for any brides who are looking to create something similar πŸ™‚

In fact, I have been taking lots of photos so you betcha I will have lots of fun tutorials when we get back at the end of the month {furniture and wedding related}!

Update: Here is what my finished bouquet looked like at our wedding:


Now onto the giveaway, yay! I am so happy that I teamed up with Start at Home, Create Inspire, Number Fifty Three, and Picked and Painted to bring you a chance to win a $50 Visa Gift Card!

    • Well, even if things don’t go as planned I have enjoyed working on the projects {Eric even helped cut some of the “flower petals” out!} and our day should at least feel personal and special πŸ™‚ Good luck and I hope you are feeling better and ready for your trip to Hawaii!

  • Oh my goodness, that bouquet is stunning!! You should make and sell them! I contemplated a fabric bouquet for a while and then decided I wanted real flowers, but wow what a statement that will make!

    October 10, 2013 at 4:03 pm
    • Thank you Steph! Yeah, when I saw how much the fabric bouquets were selling for on Etsy I knew I would need to DIY my own. Making one wasn’t so bad- it’s making 6 total that has me feeling pretty wiped out! I now understand why they charge so much! lol. After the wedding I will definitely think about selling them in my Etsy shop or may even do a giveaway for one πŸ™‚

  • EEEEK! I love it! πŸ™‚
