Over the past few months, you will have seen several WIP photos of my potential wedding yarn bouquet on the Instagram feed.

Totally unsure of what I was doing, and winging it the entire way, it worked out exceptionally well! And the FO flew all the way to Italy with us for the big day.

The yarn bouquet was made from polyester balls wrapped in yarn, florists wire, scrap quilters wadding, some knitting and crochet, lots of beads, and a lifesaving hot glue gun. Once I had the hang of what I was aiming for, it started coming together quite nicely. But for several weeks things weren’t even looking like a bouquet!

The wiring on the underside was covered by the quilter’s wadding, and then two circular layers of knitting. Just to make it prettier. The first is a segmented circle of lace with a beaded edging. Then the second is a gorgeous lace doily with a leaf pattern.

And because the handle was set at an angle to the yarn bouquet’s domed shape, photos were easily taken from a multitude of angles.

The bouquet received numerous compliments on the day, and it was a delight (mostly) to make. And as this is not going to bio-degrade any time soon, the bouquet can be placed in our home for many years of happy memories to come.
