How to Make a Round Bouquet - Sola Wood Flowers

How to Make a Round Bouquet

A round bouquet is a tried and tested look that never goes out of style, a true classic indeed. It can be monochromatic consisting of just one type of flower in a bouquet but it also looks just as beautiful featuring a variety of flowers and colors. One can opt for a perfect dome-shaped bouquet or one that’s still round but a little asymmetrical. 

Here's a step-by-step tutorial to guide you in creating your own round bouquet. 

Floral Supplies and Tools Needed


STEP 1: Dye the Sola Wood Flowers

Prepare a bowl of water and add sola softener. Here’s a comprehensive guide on How to Use Softener to keep the flowers soft and pliable even after they have dried.

Check this How To Dye Sola Wood Flowers tutorial. You will learn the basic steps of using sola dye to color the flowers. 

Dye all the flowers needed and let dry for about 24 hours or more. Make sure they are fully dried to the touch before proceeding to the next step.

STEP 2: Stem the Sola Wood Flowers

Stem all the needed flowers before starting to make the arrangement. You may keep excess stemmed flowers for future use.

STEP 3: Start Arranging the Bouquet

Pick three or four blooms to form the base of your bouquet and add stems to this focal point. 

Wrap with floral tape as you go for added support and stability.

Turn the bouquet as you add stems to it so you build one layer at a time from the center out. Continue adding more layers until you are happy with the size and look of your bridal bouquet.

STEP 3: Add Greenery and Fillers

Start with the boxwood leaves. These will add height to the arrangement. Scatter them equally around the bouquet.

A round bouquet can be a tight round but it can also be asymmetrical. We want our bouquet to have a bit of layering so we are ditching perfect symmetry for this bouquet project.

Next, add generous bunches of dried star fillers scattered around the arrangement. We are using only two kinds of fillers so as not to overpower the flowers.

Once you have all the flowers in place and you have achieved a desirable size, tightly wrap the stems several times with floral tape to secure the bouquet. 

STEP 4: Finish the Handle with Bouquet Grass

Surround the handle with bouquet grass for a more natural look. 

Secure it with floral tape.

STEP 5: Cut the Excess Stems

Trim any unruly ends with a cutter to make the bottom even. The handle should be comfortable to carry, not too long and not too short either.  

STEP 6: Wrap the Handle with Floral Twine

Apply glue at the topmost part of the floral tape. Stick the burlap twine then twist and wrap until the handle is fully covered.

Secure the ends with hot glue.
