Winter bouquet with own hands: photo
Classic winter bouquet - spruce branches with pine needles. Still, he, in theory, should be reminded of the main symbol of this time of year - about spruce. Place several such branches in the vase as the base for the rest of the bouquet.
Depending on its overall color scheme, choose a spray that can paint the tips of the needles, as if they were powdered with "snow" (gold, silver, blue or just white). Spray, however, is optional, but if you use it, do not forget to put a little bit of the same paint on other elements of the bouquet later.
The needles look warm and a little rough, so if you want to add real flowers to the winter bouquet, this is a good opportunity for contrast - take not only small white flowers, like gypsophila, for the background (they themselves look like snow), but also one or two large, but the most subtle and airy colors, preferably white too. Abundantly complement the bouquet with small decorations (for example, shiny beads) and a few ribbons.
One of the symbols of winter - red berries on dark, thin branches without leaves. This combination looks very beautiful against the background of white snow - or a white wall in the house with a minimalist interior. Usually, of course, in this case we are talking about the branches of blackthorn, but in our area it is not often possible to meet it. A good substitute for blackthorn is mountain ash, its berries are bright scarlet or burgundy in winter.
But it is not necessary to take natural berries, especially those that originally belong to this particular plant. You can attach the artificial beads of the desired color to these branches. If you like this option, it’s better to choose birch as branches, they are flexible, just cut them and they have a nice dark brown, almost black color.
Cut thin branches, - of different thickness, so they will look more natural, but not thicker than a little finger, - and fasten them with a regular thread (toffee, for example) between each other. Threads need a lot; so that the bouquet does not fall apart, you should fasten it consistently - first tie the thread to the first branch, then add the second and tie the thread around them both, making the knot, then attach the third and so on.A lot of branches should not be taken, and make sure that they are directed in different directions, otherwise the total beam will resemble a broom more than a bouquet. They are usually tied at a distance of 4-5 cm from the crop line.
Then, using thin black threads, attach beads (do not forget to make a knot on the second side of the bead so that it does not fall out). Tie beads-berries should be close to the branch; but not very often - 2-3 beads on 1 branch will be enough. You can add several thin ribbons in the color of the beads; best of all - from translucent light fabric like organza.
Jewelry and candles
Bouquets at this time of year are decorated with various foreign objects much more readily than others, and this is understandable - firstly, winter provides less opportunities for natural decorations, and secondly, it is always associated with winter holidays. Do not be afraid to hang light felt or thin cardboard hangers depicting classic symbols like angels, snowmen and stars, add air snowflakes made of shiny plastic or tissue paper, do not be afraid to experiment with sparkles.
Winter is a cold season, and in winter bouquets, candles and small candlesticks are often added.It looks very warm and beautiful, but remember that in this case it is better to choose a wide vase with low sides, almost a bowl, take candles as stable as possible, and make sure that no other element hangs directly above the flame.
