DIY - "T-Shirt Flower Wedding Bouquet"
Hi Guys....I'm so excited to share the cutest DIY project with you today...."T-Shirt Flower Wedding Bouquet". It is just to sweet....a totally "new twist" on wedding bouquets....our DIY is brought to us today by the oh-so-talented and sweet, Maize Hutton.....Maize is an AMAZING crafter and designer....I'm so happy that she stopped by to share one of her many meaningful and beautiful DIY projects with us...Enjoy!

Ingredients:
 

T-shirts
Scissors (regular and decorative scallop)
Needle & Coordinating Thread
Branches or Bark covered wire

Kraft Paper or brown paper sack)

Twine, lace or ribbon
Glue gun & glue


Directions:

For Each Flower:

1.  Cut 3 strips approximately 2” wide by 18” long or however big you’d like your flowers.  See other technique below for thicker flowers.


2.  Cut each strip along edge approximately 1/4"-1/2” leaving 1/2” at the other edge.


3.  Gather all 3 strips together matching uncut edge.


4.  With needle and thread, secure the three strips with a stitch.


5.  Start sewing layers together securing with a stitch while rolling into a flower.


6.  Continue sewing layers together securing with a stitch until you’ve reached the end of the strip.


7.  When complete, inside flower will have a ‘well’ for branch or wire to insert.


8.  Insert 1-2 drops of hot glue in flower well.  Stick in branch or bark covered wire for stem.


9.  Stitch around to secure flower to stem.


10.  Cut kraft paper using a decorative edge scissor or scallop scissor.  Wrap paper around flower bouquet.  Tie with twine, lace or ribbon to match your wedding colors. 


Now you have a beautiful DIY wedding bouquet for the bride or bridesmaids!  You can also use these flowers as corsages by simply attaching a pin to the back instead of a stem.  You may also cut leaves and attach to the flowers as I’ve done in the finished bouquet. 

Another technique is to cut the material 4 inches wide and fold in half, sewing the cut edge together with your sewing machine.  Then use your scissors to cut down the folded half and then cut the ¼” strips.  Follow the instructions by rolling the flower as described above.  This produces a thicker flower. 

Have fun crafting and enjoy!
