Whether you're a DIY enthusiast or prefer to have the bouquet made for you, this tutorial has something for everyone. So let's dive in and create a stunning bouquet that will brighten any occasion.

Materials Needed for the Ray of Sunshine Collection Bouquet

Before we begin, let's gather all the materials you will need for this project. Here's a list of what you'll need:

  1. Ray of Sunshine Collection Bouquet kit (includes flowers and star flower)
  2. Floral tape
  3. Wire cutters
  4. Glue gun
  5. Hot glue sticks
  6. Ribbon of your choice

Dying the Flowers

The first step in creating the Ray of Sunshine Collection Bouquet is to dye the flowers. The kit includes ivory, navy blue, and yellow flowers, but you can customize the colors if desired. The ivory flowers serve as the base, while the navy blue and yellow flowers add pops of color. Follow the instructions provided with the kit to dye the flowers to your desired shade.

Stemming the Flowers

Once the flowers are dyed and dried, it's time to stem them. Take each flower and trim the stems to your desired length using wire cutters. Make sure to leave enough length for the bouquet to have a good size and shape.

Creating the Bouquet

Now that the flowers are stemmed, it's time to start creating the bouquet. Begin by opening up the star flower included in the kit. This flower will add a whimsical and rustic touch to the bouquet. Get your floral tape ready by having a strip on your lap for easy access.

To form the bouquet, start by selecting three flowers and arranging them in a rounded shape. Add a little bit of the star flower around the sides to create a balanced look. Aim to have more ivory flowers than navy blue to create a contrast that makes the navy blue flowers stand out. Continue adding flowers and star flower, adjusting the placement as necessary to achieve a cohesive and rounded bouquet.

Customizing the Bouquet

If you prefer a different color combination for your bouquet, don't worry! The Ray of Sunshine Collection Bouquet is customizable. You can choose different colors instead of navy blue, such as blush pink or burgundy. When ordering the kit, simply leave a note specifying your color preferences. This allows you to tailor the bouquet to your personal style and the occasion for which it will be used.

Additional Options: DIY Kits vs. Pre-made Bouquets

In my shop, you have two options for acquiring the Ray of Sunshine Collection Bouquet. You can purchase the DIY kit, which includes all the materials necessary to create the bouquet yourself. Alternatively, if you prefer to have the bouquet made for you, I offer pre-made bouquets that can be customized to your liking. Consider your preferences and skill level when deciding which option is best for you.

Securing the Flowers

Once you're satisfied with the arrangement of the flowers, it's time to secure them in place. Using floral tape, wrap it tightly around the stems just above the flower heads. This will hold the bouquet together and ensure the flowers stay in their desired position. If necessary, add a small amount of glue to the floral tape for extra security.

Adding Star Flower to the Bouquet

The star flower included in the kit adds a unique touch to the bouquet. Take a small bundle of star flower and spread it out to create a visual balance. Starting from the base of the bouquet, tuck the star flower under the flowers and wrap it around, covering any exposed stems. Adjust the placement as needed to ensure the bouquet looks cohesive and full.

Wrapping the Bouquet

With the flowers and star flower arranged to your liking, it's time to wrap the bouquet. Take another strip of floral tape and wrap it firmly around the stems just below the star flower. This will help secure the bouquet and give it a polished look. Make sure not to wrap too high, as you'll be adding ribbon to cover the floral tape in the next step. Once wrapped, trim any excess floral tape.

Trimming and Adding Ribbon

Now it's time to add the final touch to your bouquet - the ribbon. Take your chosen ribbon, preferably in a coordinating color, and cut a length that will wrap around the bouquet's base. Apply a small amount of hot glue to the top part of the ribbon and place it firmly around the stems, just above the floral tape. Let it dry for a moment, allowing the glue to set.

To give the ribbon a neat finish, fold the top part of the ribbon over the floral tape and secure it with another small amount of hot glue. This will create a clean edge and complete the look of the bouquet. Feel free to trim the ribbon to your desired length, leaving a little extra for a decorative touch.
