Craspedia, billy buttons, billy balls, and my favorite term, woollyheads… whatever you call them, they make such an adorable bouquet. They remind me of little velvet balls and come in amazing colors. They'll last even longer if you snag yourself some dried billy balls for a DIYed bouquet.

Here are some jewel-toned beauties from Etsy that we'd looooove to see in a bouquet. Put on your crafting pants (yep, that's probably a thing…) and make your own dried billy balls bouquet…

Just watch out if you have allergies, they're a little fuzzy.

  1. I used yellow billy balls in my centerpieces along with some dried baby's breath, rafia and fake pearls. They looked lovely and my Niece's used them as microphones when they serenaded my groom and me. Since they were dried we were able to gather them after the reception and now use them as decoration in our own house.
