Crafty Wedding Bouquet Patterns, Tutorials, and Ideas

Not all wedding bouquets are made out of fresh flowers. Many brides are choosing unique materials to craft bouquets that make their wedding days even more personalized and special. Here are ideas and tutorials for these types of hand-crafted show-stoppers.

Tissue Paper Flower Bouquet

The tutorial for this delicate Martha Stewart tissue flower bouquet states it can be made in an afternoon.

Tissue paper flowers are all about layering shapes, so once you have all your patterns cut out, you can assembly-line the flowers. Why not enlist the help of your bridal party.

Make larger flowers to decorate an arch and make centerpieces for a DIY showcase event!

Brooch Bridal Bouquet

Brooch Bridal Bouquet

Here is the tutorial you need to craft a bridal bouquet out of a sparkly collection of broochs from Glamour This.

I would hit the thrift stores and Estate Sales to collect brooches, but did you know that you can score inexpensive one's that look vintage on Amazon.com, too? This is going to be a much more expensive bouquet to make than any others, except fresh flowers.

I remember being fascinated by my grandmother's button collection, as a child. Looking back, I still want to just eat them! Create your "Something old" with buttons that have been passed down a generation or two.

My mom is a quilter and indulges in "Fat quarters" for her fabric collection. With some crafty flowers patterns, I'm sure she could make the quilter's dream bouquet out of vintage and keepsake fabric. We would add vintage and heirloom buttons for the centers of the flowers.

For those who love fabric, Elizabeth Ann Designs had this tutorial for a super cute fabric flower wedding bouquet.
