I know I've mentioned before that my friends, Heather & Tillman are getting married in December. As part of my brilliant plan to keep myself busy, I offered to help out with any wedding crafting that needed to be done. Including a flower girl basket that Heather's daughter will be carrying.
For the flower girl basket, I started off with a basket from Goodwill, pine cones collected from my parents yard, moss from the craft store, ribbon and my glue gun, Debra.
I started by gluing clumps of the moss around the edge of the basket.
When I was finished gluing the the moss, I tied two bows around the base of the handles on either side of the basket.
After I had the bows tied just how I wanted them, and secured with a little hot glue, I hot glued a couple pine cones to the center of the bow.
There you have it, a beautiful, easy flower girl basket that fits into the rustic theme of my friend's wedding.
I'm happy with how it turned out, and more importantly, the bride and flower girl are thrilled with my results as well.
1 more week until Heather & Tillman's big day...I can't wait!
