You Will Need:
Flower Girl Basket
#1 ½ Satin Ribbon
#26 Florist Wire
Light Green Floral Wrap Tape
I began this design by preparing the flowers. Cluster Baby’s Breath and wrap with the light green floral wrap tape. Set aside. Take a bloom of astromeria and cut close to the bloom. Cut #26 wire into 6” pieces. One piece for each bloom. Push a piece of wire through the base of the bloom. Fold the ends down and wrap with the light green floral wrap. Set aside.
Make a bow using the #1½ ribbon. Take a 6” piece of wire and complete bow. Twist the ends of the wire close to the bow. Secure the bow by placing the ends of the wire around the handle of the basket and twisting the ends close to the handle.
Place the Baby’s Breath clusters in the bow. Secure with hot glue. Place an alstromeria bloom at the top of the bow. Secure with glue. Place an alstromeria bloom at the bottom of the bow. Secure with glue.
Place flower petals in the basket.
