Homemade flower bouquets often have more meaning than those bought in stores because you made them yourself. Plus, handmade flower bouquets are also a lot cheaper. Be it for a wedding or a birthday, warping flowers in ribbon is a great touch to any flower bouquet. Not only does ribbon look beautiful with a flower bouquet it also adds a romantic touch. Plus, wrapping flowers with ribbon is easy as long as you have the proper tools.
Remove all leaves and thorns from the flowers.
Hold a thin piece of wire as long as the stem next to the stem of the flower. Wrap the tape around the stem and wire tightly so they are touching each other and the stem in no longer exposed. Wrap the tape around the loose wire at the end. Repeat with each flower unless they have sturdy stems, like roses.
Lay each flower in a bundle the way you want them to appear in the bouquet. Wrap the stems together with tape. Start at the top and work your way to the bottom until all the stems are tightly wrapped together.
Hold the ribbon at the top of the flower bouquet and tape it to the stem to hold it in place. Wrap it around the flower stems angling downward. Fold the ribbon over the base of the stems and wrap it back upward. Be sure the ribbon overlaps so none of the taped stems are showing. Once wrapped in ribbon, tie the remaining ribbon into a small bow or knot to secure it.
