A large variety of shapes and techniques can be applied for the design of a bouquet frame. Thijs shows us how stips of wood veneer can be shaped in a remarkable fashion. This frame will service as the base of a bouquet.
Wetting the veneer on forehand makes it much more easy to bend the veneer. Roll the veneer into a circle and fix it with clothespins. Place this construction into a water container.
After the water bath, use a glue gun to create a conical shape. The clothespins can be attached on placed where the cone structure is glued together to enhance the drying process.
This allows you to work faster without fears that the construction falls apart.
When the shape is finished, die the cone with a bright accent of wallpaint. This dries fast and is available in a large amount of colours.
Glue 3 or 4 bamboo sticks to the frame, again using hot glue from the glue gun.
Clean all flowers u want to use; the leave material is redundant in this design.
Distribute the flowers over multiple levels of height.
Restrain on the use of compact/voluminous flowers since these will obstruct the view on the carefully constructed frame.
This type of frame is suitable through the entire year; you might want to try a different variety with shorter flowers, or, in winter, place some artificial snow against the framework instead of wall paint.
