Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Country Wedding Bouquet with Decorative Trimmings





 This month the Designer Craft Connection is hosting a blog hop featuring the fabulous product line from Decorative Trimmings.   They have colorful trims, sparkling trims, and great neutral trims.  Something for almost any project.   I ordered 3 different trims.  One I'm featuring today as part of this Wedding Themed hop, the others I'll be sharing soon in another post.   Be sure to follow the DCC link in the column on the right so you can see what other creative projects the participants are sharing!

This wedding bouquet is perfect for a simple country wedding.  It's mix of flowers, ferns, and twisting vines & twigs, combined with burlap ribbon wrapping, and a touch of pretty ivory trim with a crochet feel is casual, yet elegant at the same time.

Materials:

Decorative Trimmings 1 1/8" INCH COTTON DRAGONLOOP TRIM 
06282-8-011Y-008

Flowers of choice
Vintage Mason Jar - Optional 

Instructions: 

Arrange flowers as desired.  Cut all stems to uniform length.

Wrap stems of bouquet with burlap ribbon, pin in place to hold.

Cut 1 yard of burlap ribbon.  Use Fabri-Tac to mount ivory crochet "dragon loop" trim to center of
burlap ribbon.

Tie bow around base of flowers.   The addition of the ivory crochet trim adds a beautiful feminine touch to this country style bouquet and will coordinate with  the bride's crochet style wedding dress beautifully.

After the big day, the bouquet would be beautiful displayed in a vintage Mason jar.  Either leave the pretty burlap & crochet bow on the bouquet, or tie it to the jar itself.  This second option would also make lovely centerpieces for the reception tables.

Decorative Trimmings has a vast assortment of beautiful trims - perfect for any wedding accessory or decoration - whether your theme is bright and bold colors, subtle tones, or country style - they have something for almost everyone's style!
