Bridesmaid Bouquet Becomes a Valentine's Day Decoration

You've saved your bridesmaid bouquet. It's pretty, it cost
someone a lot of's a keepsake. But it's takiing up
SPACE doing nothing. I chose to turn mine into a pretty
Valentine's Day decoration.
Using my wire cutters, I cut off all the flowers and greenery.
The bow on the bouquet was hot glued on, so I wasn't able to
salvage it unfortunately.
Then, I glued my greenery on first, then added the largest
roses next. Fill in the spaces with the smaller flowers.
And my wall hanging is complete in about 1 hour.
I also added a multistrand necklace that I never
wear. I think it gives my decoration some elegance.

Make A Valentine's Day Tree!

I made this tree using red wood beaded strands from Christmas,
red beads and wire to create heart ornaments, and recycled
Valentine's Day greeting cards and ribbon.
