SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Darice, Long Nose Pliers, 5"
  • Glue gun, multi temp
  • Glue sticks
  • Floral wire with Cutter, 26 gauge
  • Vase, 3"– 4" mouth
  • Scissors
  • Metal bobby pins
  • Ruler
  • Large mirror
  • Hydrangea bush, silk screened, taupe
  • Dahlia bush, pink
  • Rose bush, roseberry
  • Lambs ear bush
  • Ranunculus bush, deep red
  • Mum bush, mauve
  • Cosmos bush, red

DIRECTIONS:

    Bouquet
  1. Cut off largest stems of each flower type and place in vase (each pick comes with many stems. Each number is the amount of individual flower stems in bouquet)
  2. Hydrangea, 2
    Dahlia, 3
    Mum, 3
    Rose
    Ranunculus, 3
    Cosmos, 1 (leave 6 stems as one piece)
    Lambs Ear, break into smaller parts leaving at least two with long stems

  3. Push up leaves to tip if possible. Remove all leaves on larger flowers and set aside. Remove at least six of the lowest Lambs Ear leaves to be used later. Side cut the stems of the larger flower stems using the wire cutters to remove any lumps.
  4. Arrange the flowers in the vase. Keep the two or three longer Lambs Ear to one side. Take out 2-3 stems at a time and wire together. Spiral down to 1" from ends of stems. Cut an 18" piece of wire. When all small sprays are wired take out all stems. Use a mirror to rearrange any stems. The Cosmos stems may be bent to set between different flowers.
  5. Wire around the entire stem grouping. Keep the greenery to one side and bend the entire bundle of stems toward that side. This will create a comfortable curve to carry the bouquet.
  6. Hot glue in all spaces between the wired stems.
  7. Hot glue the lower good side of some of the Hydrangea leaves and attach one at a time to the underside of the Hydrangea flowers. These may extend beyond the edge of the bouquet.
  8. Continue using the Hydrangea leaves, layering to cover all of the wired stems to 3" from the ends. Take one leaf and use scissors to cut along the center vein. Place hot glue on the center 3rd of the leaf back. Place the leaf under the stem tips with the vein just below the tips. Press in place. Hot glue the sides of the leaf and wrap up and over the stems. This will create a clean edge tube at the end of the stems. Use hot glue to apply the Lambs Ear leaves, right sides out, on the handle of the bouquet. The tips of the leaves will point toward the bouquet flowers.

Hairpiece
    Hydrangea, 1 flower head only, will split into two piece
    Rose, 2
    Mum, 4
    Ranunculus, 1
    Cosmos, 3

  1. Take one rose and one Mum and bend a quarter size loop with the stem. Start the loop close to the flower head. Bend flowers toward the loops. Wire the loops closed. Wrap wire between the leaves of the flowers then around the stems. This will create two points to attach to hair.
  2. Cut a Ranunculus and a Mum and wire to opposite sides of the Rose. Set the flowers with loops 8” apart. Cut the lengths of the stems to extend no further than the beginning of the loop under the first Mum. Add one stem of Cosmos between the Mum and Rose. Set higher to be visible. Wire together.
  3. Add one stem of Cosmos and one Mum to the Mum with the loop. Use the pliers to bend another loop on the long stem of the Mum. Bend a small hook at the end of the stem to aid in wiring the loop. The loop will be a third location to attach to hair. Wire the loop together by winding the wire through the leaves of the flowers and back through the hook on the loop.
  4. Place the two sides of the hairpiece together so the outer flowers are 8" apart. Wire together in the center. Trim any lengths of stems that extend into the end loops. There should be about 3" of space between the end flowers.
  5. Adjust all loops so that they lay on the same surface. Bend the entire stem band to a slight curve to contour to a head.
  6. Take the one Hydrangea and separate into two sets of petals. Wire one set to either side of center of the hair piece.
  7. Dry fit and wire 2 Cosmos, 1 Ranunculus, 1 Rose and 1 Mum, alternating the directions of the stems, in the center of the hair piece.
  8. Place a thin line of hot glue between the wired stems. Adjust the flower heads to fill in spaces. The Hydrangea petals may be directed between different flowers.
  9. Use hot glue to attach cut off leaves, right side out, layered over the wires on the back.
  10. Add in any other leaves as desired.

Craft Hack Tips and Tricks:

  • When gluing leaves on the back apply hot glue to one side and secure then add hot glue to the other side and secure.
  • By adding a small amount of glue to select petals and leaves and pressing together the arrangement will keep its original shape.
