Their velvety petals are simply exquisite, and their timeless beauty speaks volumes about the classic romance they represent. It's no wonder they are such a popular symbol of love.
Dahlias are truly a sight to behold with their rich and complex petals and alluring hues.

For those seeking to add a touch of magic, the inclusion of eucalyptus leaves with their striking, silvery-blue tones and delightful scent is a splendid choice.

These exquisite and intricate flowers boast multiple layers of delicate petals that come in an array of striking hues, ranging from deep burgundy to rich crimson, making them a highly versatile choice for adding depth and dimension to any floral arrangement.
How to Make a Burgundy Bridal Bouquet
Creating a pretty bouquet is a delightful DIY project that allows you to infuse a personal touch into your wedding preparations. Whether you’re a seasoned floral artist or new to crafting, Sola Wood Flowers’ kits provide an easy and beautiful way to achieve the perfect burgundy-hued bridal bouquet for your special day. Follow these instructions to create a memorable and effortless flower arrangement that will make your wedding even more enchanting:
Materials You’ll Need:
- Artificial flowers (such as deep red roses, dahlias, ranunculus)
- Greenery (eucalyptus leaves, ferns, or other foliage)
- Floral tape
- Floral wire
- Wood Dye
- Sola Softener
- Ribbon or twine
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Before starting, make sure that your artificial flowers are previously dyed in burgundy hues. Here’s a tutorial on how to dye sola wood flowers. Additionally, ensure they’re clean, and in good condition. If you notice any loose petals or parts, use hot glue to secure them.
To begin, select a few larger wood flowers and greenery pieces to form the base of your bouquet. Arrange the stems to create a natural-looking bouquet shape.
Gradually add more wood flowers and greenery to build your bouquet. Insert each stem at an angle, turning the bouquet slightly with each addition to achieve a balanced look. Use different shades of burgundy and greenery for depth and texture.
Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement, use floral wire or stems to secure the bundle of wood flowers together. Wrap the stems tightly but gently to avoid damaging the artificial blooms.
Use wire cutters to trim the stems to your desired length. The length can vary based on your personal preference and wedding style.
Next, wrap the handle of your floral arrangement with ribbon, twine, or lace. Start at the top and work your way down. Secure the wrapping with hot glue or pins as needed for decoration and grip.
Review your artificial flower bouquet and make any final adjustments. Ensure that the flowers and greenery are evenly distributed and that the bouquet has an appealing shape.
Since your bouquet is made from fake flowers, it will stay pristine throughout your wedding day. Store it in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use it.
