After seeing these on Etsy I just knew I HAD to have one. I tried quiet a few methods before finding what worked for me. My FH made the base as the ones at the craft store weren't strong enough to support the weight of the shells. I also made one for my MOH. Mine also has some charms for my grandparents who passed away this year and my cousin who passed in 2007. After the wedding I will be taking of the base and using the main part as some sort of decoration somewhere in my home, possibly a centerpiece or shelf decoration.

What a lovely and personal bouquet.  I bet it would be wonderful at a beach wedding too. The little charms are a lovely way of including those who have gone on ahead.
