How to Make a Bridal / Bridesmaid Bouquet with Gypsophila


  1. Seperate stems of Gyp by holding upside down and teasing apart gently.

  2. Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle to expose the stem structure. Pop into a bucket of fresh water and leave for a few hours to fully hydrate.

  3. Start by cutting down the stems into more manageable lengths, removing any of the lower breaks. Lay out on a table to make it easier to handle.
  4. Create a handtied design using the sprial technique, adding a stem at a time and rotating as you go.

  5. Tie the design with twine and finish with anchor tape to ensure it is secure.

  6. Lastly add your chosen medium to finish the stems, i.e satin ribbon, lace, twine etc. Hidding the mechanics and finishing the look.
