As most of you know, it's tradition that the MOH takes the ribbons & bows from the bridal shower and create a rehearsal bouquet. I had every intention of getting all of those bows & ribbons before leaving town from her bridal shower, and somehow I didn't end up with them. Not only did I not have them, there weren't many bows to begin with so it would've been hard to create a practice bouquet. So onto Plan B.
Remember those Tulle Poms on a stick I made for the shower? Turns out that was going to make the perfect Plan B Rehearsal Bouquet! I put them together with a couple toilet paper rolls, some tape, and ribbon and it became the prettiest rehearsal bouquet ever! This is something she will be able to keep and display for a very long time, next to her actual bouquet for the wedding! Best part is, since I already had everything on hand, except the ribbon, it was very inexpensive since I reused the tulle poms from her shower. I think the ribbon was on sale for $1.50...score! Here is how I did it (sorry for the grainy pics, I took them with my phone)...
|Needed: Tulle poms on a wooden dowel, tape (I used electrical, can use whatever you have), toilet paper rolls (so the "stem" is smooth), hot glue (not shown), and ribbon (not shown)|
|Step 1: Bunch the tulle poms, and tape the dowels together in 2 places to make sure they are secure.|
Step 2: Cut toilet paper roll in half (I used 2)
Step 3. Wrap toilet paper roll around dowels until snug, and tape seams together.
|Step 4: Cut a piece of ribbon and hot glue it to the end of the dowels/tp roll|
Step 5: Starting at the top, wrap your favorite ribbon around the base and hot glue at the end (not shown)
I think it turned out so pretty, and I just LOVE all of the glitz it has! If you're wondering where I got the glitter tuller, read more here.
