I'm getting married next August and I'd been on the search for projects to do for my wedding day... and via a wedding board I belong to, I found a girl who had made beaded bouquets for her wedding and she posted a link to some instructions on how to do it. I'd seen beaded bouquets before on several different wedding sites and they were always in the $300 to $500 range... I loved them, but they were just waaaaaay too expensive for me. So, when I saw that you could make them yourself and the instructions looked pretty easy, I just HAD to try making them. It's recommended that you use Swarovski crystal beads, but since I just about choked when I found out how much those beads cost, I decided to try making bouquets out of a bunch of assorted glass beads.
The bouquets are still in progress, but I figured I'd share what mine looks like so far:
