diy: how to make a french hand-tied bouquet


Yesterday my intern, Lauren, came over and we made hand-tied bouquets with cute little water packs. If you’d like to make some for Mother’s Day, here are my instructions. With a little practice, it’s super easy. I love making bouquets for gifts any time of the year and the recipients like them too!

  1. Shannon: I’ll let Lauren answer that. I am not sure where her top is from.
    Michele: The French i invented this bouquet. If you read on the how to, I explain. They were the ones that came up with the tight, round bouquet with spiral stems.

  2. It’s already been said but I’ll add to the cheers…these are the sweetest things I’ve seen in a long time! Adorable! Thanks for the how-to!
