To assemble your felt wedding bouquet you’ll need to cut multiple pieces of wire, from 3″ – 7″.

Start with 5 large flowers, arrange them the way you like and wrap their stems together with 1 piece of cut wire.

Wrap the wire nice and tight!

Then add more flowers… 3-5 is the perfect number – and then wrap with wire again.

Keep balance in mind while building your bunch…

Look at your bouquet from ALL angles. Make sure that all sides are packed full of felt flowers.

Once you are happy with the bouquet, trim all the wire stems to match.

Now it’s time to wrap the stems in felt… cut a large piece to wrap the length of the wires and a small piece to wrap the ends.

Hot glue and cover the very ends of your wire with felt. This not only secures your stems but protects your hands from those sharp wires!

Now wrap the entire length of your wire stems in felt and hot glue.
