Autumn Bouquet

Golden Autumn is the time for weddings and photo sessions. And what only the photographers do not come up with to make their photos bright, rich, and most importantly - on the autumn theme. The other day I received an urgent order for a creative autumn bouquet for a photo shoot of a young couple. There was no time for reflections, it was necessary to do with improvised materials. And that's what I did.

We hope this workshop will inspire you with different ideas for creating autumn bouquets. So, what we need: • newspapers • • PVA glue • • round base in the shape of a ball • • construction foam • • wooden handle • • scissors, a knife • white oblique inlay (you can take a regular ribbon) • white office paper • white corrugated paper • • white thread • • artificial flowers and leaves • • artificial vegetables and fruits of small size • superglue The bouquet will be voluminous; to do this you need to create a base, round on top and flat on the bottom (where the handle will be).I used a piggy bank for these purposes, it is made in the shape of a ball. You can take any round object. I wrapped it in a plastic bag and began to glue the pieces of newspaper and glue with white glue.

Make several layers of the newspaper so that our foundation for the bouquet is strong. Leave for a couple of hours until completely dry. Next, we are faced with the task of filling our basis with something from the inside in such a way as to secure the handle securely. And do not weight the bouquet. I came across the construction foam. We had to blow out our workpiece, do not forget to insert the handle of the required length into you. My handle is 15 cm long.

Leave this design for the night. Everything has to dry well. The next morning, we cut off the excess foam, align the edges and we have such a fungus.

I would like to note that the preparation turned out to be very solid and durable, and most importantly - practically weightless The handle is so securely fixed that it was impossible to move even a millimeter.In order to hide the colorful scraps of newspapers, I pasted over the blank with white office paper cuts and white glue.

Then I pasted the blank with white corrugated paper and fixed it at the bottom of the handle glue and for reliability secured with a thread around the handle.

Wrap the handle with white oblique bake and thereby hide the edges of the corrugated paper.

Do not worry if it didn’t work perfectly to stick the corrugated paper, you will not see this in the finished form. Now we are finally moving on to the most interesting - the decor. We begin to decorate the blank with the edges, pasting it with artificial leaves. For this I used superglue. We condense the layer of leaves, sticking leaves from above that differ in color and texture from the previous ones.

We glue artificial flowers on the leaves, as shown in the photo.

In the next row we alternate flowers with vegetables andfruits. Autumn bouquet
And we have to close the top of the bouquet with flowers and fruits.

I still have figurines of vegetables and fruits, and I decided to compact the bottommost layer of flowers with them. Here is a photo of a ready bouquet from different angles.  Autumn Bouquet  Autumn Bouquet Autumn Bouquet
