Another pine cone related post...



My obsession du jour: pine cones as accents (as evidenced by the last post) and I am also a big fan of non-floral bouquets (as evidenced by my first post ever where I could dream about nothing but bouquets made of fluffy cotton). So you can imagine my delight when I saw this...


It comes to us via Once Wed and the best part is it is one of their fabulous DIY projects. The steps are pictured below and if you visit their site, they have detailed directions for creating this bouquet all on your own.

Personally, I think I would stop at step 6. Maybe just wrap the bottom in floral tape or tight ribbon, I am not so into the hanging ribbons and the hanky ... I like everything to be simple and clean. But I still think its a fabulous idea and for a more vintage feel, the hanky wrapped around it is perfecto.

Check out Once Wed for the details.

This is a fantastic idea! Are you seriously thinking of doing a no floral bouquet? If so I think that's awesome!

I was pondering the idea of bouquets of pinecones, and found this post! I agree, it looks better without the ribbon and handkerchief... Maybe there is a way to wrap the stems in some sort of plant material instead...
