Inspiration #6: DIY Bouquet (w. Hellabores!)

I love hellebores, and even more so, a bargain. Here's fabulous how-to make your own bridal bouquet (from "Springtime in England" post). This will be a great project for my bridal party the night before and only cost me $25 rather than $100 for my bouquet! "Springtime in England" post (reprinted). Click here for pictorial version>>

For the Bridal Bouquet:
You need:
10 red/white anemone stems
3 full pink roses
10 Ranunculus stems in eggplant
2 bunches of buttercup greens
2 bunches of vinca vine
2 stems of green hellebores
clippers or scissors
ribbon (1.5 yards)

Step # 1: Remove all most of the leaves from the stems.

Step # 2
: Start with a selection of flowers in your hand. Add roses at the bottom and let the ranunculus buds peek out at the top. Turn the bouquet each time you add a new grouping of flowers. Keep turning and adding until you are happy with it. Add greens around the bottom.

Step # 3: Secure with twine.

Step #4: Clip the stems so they are all the same length.

Step #5: Wrap ribbon around stem and secure with two pins.
