1. Using a selection of cotton lawn, linen, raw silk etc in various shades of cream and ivory I started forming flowers in my hand and then securing with some rather large stitches to anchor the shape.
2.I used a kitchen whisk as the base!!! It seemed the right shape with a little pulling to round it a bit. I covered all of it in florist tape.
3. I made a huge selection of the flowers and with my trusty glue gun started to secure them to the whisk. Who’d have thought!!
4. Here you can see the almost completed whisk.
5.I used the glue gun again to secure the satin ribbon I wound around the handle.
6.Here’s a close up of the lovely sentiment ribbon I used for the final bit of trimming….it dangled down from the handle.
7. And here comes the bride! My lovely daughter. She called her bouquet ‘my whisk’ all day and she loved it.
