I have lost my mind.
I've found some pictures of some beauties and the wheels in my head started turning. (Well.. they started turning AFTER I was quoted for over $300 for ONE bouquet!..)
Ready to ohhh and ahhh with me?
And guess what those are? Oh yeah... CLAY FLOWERS! Aren't they amazing!! Yeah, I thought so, too. And I also found THIS bouquet, that I actually got the quote on...
So, what did I do since this was WAYYY out of the budget? I googled. And then I googled some more.
Know what I found? TUTORIALS!! OH YES! I actually realized that they really aren't all that much different than my crepe paper flowers that I have mastered over the past couple months. They are practically the same thing, if not a little easier since it's clay.
I thought to myself.. "Self.. you could TOTALLY do that and make your own bouquet and bridesmaids and bouts.. OH MY!" And you know what, I can! I know I can because I've actually made a couple clay roses in college!!
So.. I ordered some clay today. That's right.. it's ordered, there is no stopping me now! Except, now I just have to wait for it to arrive here from Hawaii. lol. But best believe that as soon as I get that package.. I'm ripping it open and giving it a go. Then I'll be right back here posting pictures for you all! I'm awesome like that.
You can thank me later for the bouquet porn. =D
