Faux-quets to Save $$$

Faux bouquet that will last a lifetime

Are you a DIY bride? Even if you are DIY challenged, this simple bouquet is probably something you can pull together.  The flowers in this bouquet are all made of cedar or balsa wood and wrapped with fabric. The designer used fabric from Spoonflower but you can use the fabric or ribbon of your choice to wrap your faux-quet.  The bride who made this great bouquet has a tutorial on her web site, Creative Brit Living, here

The materials from Save On Crafts are listed below.  Doesn't the price look right? especially for flowers that will last forever and not just for your wedding day!
