DIY #12~ Bouquets for $16.00!

One of the biggest items on my budget was my bouquets. 

Well I don't want anything extravagant, my only true requirement was pink daisies. :) 

When I went to Dollar Tree to pick up the flowers for my centerpieces I found that they had a ton of daisies that looked  as good as the ones at Hobby Lobby for a fraction of the price. $1 per bush! I bought 5 bushes~ 3 of them were all pink and the other two were white, pink, and red. (tossed the red)

I removed all the flowers from the "bushes" by cutting the wires at the bases. Next I  removed the leaves and had a fantastic pile of flowers. 

I bent the stems near the top to make the flowers arch over and then gathered them in my hand and arranged them that way. 

When I had them the way I liked them I wrapped rubber bands around them to keep them in place. 

Next I used some more floral tape and wrapped it all around the stems to keep them together. 

I finished them each off with some navy blue ribbon that I had laying around. And ta-da! Done!

Edit: I edited this! Had a change of heart about the bouquets last weekend and decided to redo them. I made both of these a little bigger and then redid my bouquet for another $6. 

Here's my new updated bouquet!

Your concept is outstanding; the difficulty is one thing that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing referring to this.
