I've decided to make all of my flowers! No real ones!
Thanks to Martha Stewart, I've got just the thing!!!
Last night I started to make flowers, and I have actually figured out ways of making them just a little easier than Martha. My fingers are not as good as hers I guess.
My first flower was the "Folded Petal"...what I saw was that as we tried to attach the petals, the wire would twist, the white ball would move, it made a Big Mess! Tacky glue to the rescue!
By gluing the white ball to the wire, and then using it's tacky-ness to add the first petals, the job was instantly quicker, easier, and there was a LOT less hair pulling!
I'll share photos with you as I get them done. So far so good!!
I have declared that I am creating an amazing wedding on a tight tight tight budget.
Item one: Flowers. CHECK!
And the best part is, there is no water needed, they will not wilt, I don't need to store them in the fridge, I don't need to have a melt down when they don't arrive in time. Presto! Done!
Just hope it doesn't rain!!!
