Preparing for a wedding always takes a lot of time and effort. And this is not surprising, because every bride dreams of an ideal celebration — fun, original, stylish and interesting. When preparing for a holiday, it is very important not to forget about the details — after all, they often determine the mood and style of the holiday.
In this article, we will talk about wedding bangles for bridesmaids.
DIY bracelets for bridesmaids
Flower bracelets will help the bridesmaids stand out among the guests and unite them into a single group. At the same time, the dresses of the girlfriends do not have to be the same.
Despite the apparent complexity, almost every girl can create bracelets for girlfriends. This will require only a little time, patience, accuracy, and some materials.
Wedding bracelets for bridesmaids look very beautiful, looking like miniature semblances of a wedding bouquet. In this case, it is not necessary to completely repeat the bride’s bouquet — it is enough to use similar colors or the same flowers. Add stylish details to them — decorative twigs, leaves, berries. So, we make mini bracelets for bridesmaids.
- several branches with buds or flowers (main flower);
- satin or lace ribbon;
- floral tapes;
- fishing line or wire;
- twigs, berries, leaves, ears of corn or any auxiliary plant elements that are suitable in style;
- heat gun and glue.
We shortly cut the stem of the main flower and fasten the inflorescences together with a fishing line or wire. We close the fastening points with floral tape.
In the same way, we process additional decor — we shorten the stems and fasten them with the main flower with floral tape (or fishing line, and then tape).
We compose a complete composition and wrap the base of the bouquet with a satin or lace ribbon (it will become the basis of the bracelet).
We cut off the satin ribbon of the desired size (so that you can tie a beautiful bow on the bridesmaid’s hand). Glue the flower arrangement to the tape with hot glue.
The bridesmaid bracelet is ready!
If desired, you can make a bracelet, decorated only with flowers.
For this you will need:
- teip tape;
- wire (thin);
- flowers (one, or three large and three small — additional);
- wide satin ribbon (for a bow);
- thermal gun.
Most often, three flowers are used to decorate bracelets, but if you like more restrained and stylish options, you can limit yourself to one large flower without additions.
Cut flower stems as short as possible.
Then the buds must be pierced with wire.
If small flowers are used for the bracelet, we collect them in the composition. We twist the wires together and wrap them with teip tape.
We attach flowers to a satin ribbon. We punch a hole in it, and thread the prepared flowers into it. We fix the composition with hot glue.
After complete drying, the attachment point is sealed with a piece of tape. The bracelet is ready, it remains only to tie it with a magnificent bow on the wrist.
Now you know how to make bridesmaid bracelets, and the ideas below will help you decide how you want them to look — delicate or bright, lush or minimalist.
Flower Bridesmaid Bracelets
For a bright original wedding, bracelets of saturated colors are suitable — pink, green, blue, red.
White bouquets remain the most versatile option, because it is light shades that look the most solemn.
Do not spare ribbons and bows to decorate bracelets. If you want bracelets to remain as souvenirs, you should think about flowers made from ribbon, fabric or polymer clay. Such flowers look no worse than natural ones, and they can be stored for years.
