Hopper Wedding.. Flower Girl Baskets.. DIY

For our wedding, I wanted to make as much as I could on my own. Not only is it more sentimental, which I am ALL about, but you are also saving money in the process.
Why pay someone when you can do it on your own?

Thankfully the Lord blessed me with a little creative side when He made me and I was able to do a lot...

Including the flower girl baskets. 

I wanted to do something rustic to go along with the theme of our wedding so of course, being the Google queen I am, I started Googling and found my inspiration.

I fell in LOVE.

Here is all I used below:

From Michaels:

Wooden Hearts


You will also need:
glue gun
glue sticks
brown marker

I started by hot glueing the moss all around the rim of the basket...

I cut the fabric into strips...

And started rolling them into a flower shape.
I'm not good with an explanation on how I did it, so I googled "rosette tutorials" for you and found this one here.
I actually like her way of doing it better.

step 1

step 2

step 3
glue the small flower in the center of the big flower

step 4
Glue them onto the basket

Next, I took a brown marker and drew our initials onto the wooden hearts...

 And then glued those onto the baskets.

 Here are some shots from the Big Day below!
