Carry a bouquet of yarn balls

handmade bouquet, made by the bride using yarn and twineCheck out Offbeat Bride Sarah's awesome hand-made bridal bouquet made out of what looks like yarn balls! She explains how she pulled off this crafty look:

These are styrofoam balls wrapped in yarn and shoved onto floral wire. The leaves are cardboard wrapped in twine!

We think this is awesome wrapped in ZOMG! Crafty, yarn-loving brides — get to DIYing!

  1. The fiber nut in me is in love with this… And embellishing it! Using a drop spindle with a project on it for the stem, knit leaves… there are so many awesome variations on this lovely idea!

    • I was already seriously thinking of getting my favorite hand-dyer somehow represented in our wedding–this might be the perfect thing to make it happen. (Though if we do a handfasting I'll probably also have knit or silk cords dyed by her, too.) It would be really cute with handspun yarn leftovers, too — I hate wasting them!

      and I bet I could even make it work with one of my existing drop spindles…I may have to consider this for reals. Oooh.
