I am in the midst of planning a craft-tastic wedding for myself and my partner to take place in a small town in upstate New York while we reside in Singapore. Knowing that I still wanted it to have those hand-made touches I decided that I could get the most bang for my checked luggage buck by crafting the flowers and centerpieces. After much trial and error with different floral motifs I decided to keep it uniform and stick to the mollie flower (http://littlegreen.typepad.com/romansock/2009/04/mollie-flowers-the-tutorial.html
). I covered a foam ball with green duct tape and used straight pins to attach the flowers and the leaves (in case I want to dismantle it to use the flowers for something else). Not having a clue where to find a bouquet holder here I used the next best thing: a plunger that I duct taped to the ball. The handle was a bit long so I had that cut down at the plumbing supply store. I then crocheted a cover for the plunger and tied a bow on it. Not sure how I feel about the size and color of the bow so I may try crocheting something to tie around it to keep with the motif. Sorry for being so wordy...on to the pictures.
