Craftzine Blog

My crafty wedding bouquet, made for my buddy Reed Easley, was featured on Craft magazine’s blog! The bouquet is made of vintage raffia ribbon flowers I made on a loom I bought from Cathy of California at Maker Faire.

















Assisted by some other crafty buddies we created the base by carving it from a large styrofoam sphere and covering it with pleated white cotton, tulle, and a large satin bow. The handle was a screwdriver wrapped in floral tape and inserted into the foam base. This was a fun process and inspir
es perhaps more bridal accessories to come...

Our Critique Collective along with many of Reed's family and friends had a hand in creating crafts for the wedding, including over 1,000 handmade paper flower decorations, the place settings, alterations to her victorian inspired dress, and even the wine. Reed made the beautiful glass neckpiece and hair pieces she is wearing, and she and her husband Sean Sullivan made amazing sets of wine stoppers as gifts for everyone. It was a beautiful and super fun wedding.

Hundreds of flowers in process
