Enjoy your wedding flowers long after the wedding!
In our wedding, we mostly had all real flowers. We did, however, use a few artificial flowers to decorate a staircase at our venue. If you have any leftover artificial flowers from your wedding, here's a great way to save them and still enjoy them in something that will remind you of the beauty of your big day! I used the flower/pearl/berry clusters I had left over, a simple grapevine wreath, some floral wire, and wire cutters for this project.
First, I cut the bows off of these flower clusters. Then I put the flower clusters in the wreath. It takes a bit to decide exactly where the flowers should go in the wreath and to arrange them hiding the stems. I used the floral wire to anchor the flowers into the grapevine wreath. To fill in the gaps, I used some leftover pearl clusters between the flower clusters. This added a little more shine and dimension to the wreath. Now I have a spring or summer wreath that is pretty AND reminds me of our wedding day!
