Homemade FG Basket


Next week for us is a busy week! Why? nahh we just having a wedding date, lol. Well, a family gathering, my bro in-law finally getting married to a beautiful fellow Filipina a family friend back home, they met when husband and I with kids and him went to visit PH last September of 2010! Anyhow, the rest is history! They will tie the knot in just a matter of days and everybody is very much excited of course including meh! YEY! Husband and I will be in the entourage so as our lil man and the lil girl, she's their flower girl! So to make my story short, since i do enjoy doing crafts I decided not to buy her flower basket but instead to make one! So i did, this is the basket i was working on for 2 days, it is customised by momshe the color motif is purple with blacks and whites ensemble. I wanted to be unique and not a store bought basket! It is only simple but pretty, the bride and groom decided not to have a lavish or extravagant wedding just private with families and friends so thought the basket fits perfectly! That's the step by step thingy. What you think do i qualify for a job?? LOL.

Material you need for this cute simple flower girl basket:

A basket of any kind (depends what size do you want, that was from my plant i kept the basket for future use)
Fabric glue, glue gun or any kind of crafts glue.
A box of rose petals
5 packs of decorative flowers
2-3 rolls of ribbons of any color and designs
Scissors

That's it guys.

Pretty! I like the color combination you used...you're really getting good at this...although I've seen so little of your creations, I'm impressed. Keep it up!

Mommy it is very pretty and you did a great job. That is so sweet of you to make something yourself for the bride and groom's day. I would make mine too, but when I got married I had a help from a Filipina and she did all the preparations. We also had an intimate setting and we had it in our backyard. :) Congralations to the soon-to-be-newlyweds!

Wow, this is beautiful! I haven't done stuff like this in years. It's odd, I have patients for a lot of things but some crafts I just can't sit down long enough to do!

That came out beautiful! I made my flower basket and ring pillow and all of my other decor for the reception and it made it so much more meaningful! Plus it saved a ton of money! Great job!
