• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly DIY webseries.
• In this last of our three part episode showing how to make a satin bridal bouquet, we’ll make the handle, a tulle accent, and bring all the remaining pieces together.
• Starting with the handle, we’ll take some white satin ribbon and wrap it around a tube in a spiral fashion, using some hot glue to hold it in place.
• We then wrap the ribbon around the edges of the tube with some more hot glue.
• Next, we wrap some five eights inch tornado blue satin ribbon around the tube as shown.
• And then wrap some more of it around the tube’s edges.
• And then we complete the handle by gluing to one side a ball that will serve as the base for all the flowers we’ve made in the last two videos.
• Now we can start work on a lovely tulle accent that will wrap around the top of the handle.
• We start by taking a 1 and a half yard piece of 6 inch white tulle, and fold it in half length-wise.
• We then do a bit of needling to give it a ruffled appearance and to add some volume, and then wrap the finished accent around the handle as shown.
• Finally, we go around the ball, hot gluing all the little satin flowers in alternating lines of white and tornado blue.
• We use hot glue pretty liberally here to make sure it sticks.
• And we’re done!

• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly DIY webseries.
• In this first episode of a three-part series showing how to make a bridal bouquet totally decked out with satin flowers and tulle accents, we’ll work on making the little satin flowers that will decorate the bouquet.
• We’ll be making use of White and Tornado Blue inch and a half satin ribbon, some corsage pins, a lighter to fuse the ribbon ends, a ruler to measure out and cut 12 and a half inch strips of the satin, and a needle with blue thread.
• We’ll start by taking one of the strips of satin ribbon, folding it and pushing through a corsage pin diagonally as shown to hold the fold in place.
• We then continue folding and setting corsage pins in place, once for each corner, forming a square.
• Once complete, we cut the excess and fuse the edges closed using the lighter.
• We now do a bit of needling around the outside edge as shown and take off the pins as we go around each corner.
• Once complete, we pull on the thread until the square is scrunched into a small ball and knot the beginning and end of the thread as shown, cutting the excess.
• We can now open it up to see the lovely little flower we’ve just crafted!

• Welcome back to RibbonBazaar.com’s weekly DIY webseries.
• This week we’re going to make a traditional white pew bow using satin to make the bow and adding tulle for its tail.
• Supplies used include a scissor, ruler, some white two and a half inch double faced satin, and 54 inch tulle ribbons.
• We begin by measuring out 24 inches of the satin and 30 inches of the tulle, and doubling them.
• Folded and cut, these pieces will both be used as the bow’s tails.
• We then cut the ends of the satin tail piece diagonally.
• This pew bow will be relatively simple compared to some that we’ve made in the past.
• And since we’re using double-sided ribbon, there’s no need to twist to the opposite face after each loop.
• Once completed, we cut the end of the bow,
• And attach the satin tail piece to its center.
• We then attach the tulle, holding the bow and tails in one hand.
• Wrapping all the pieces together using some florist wires and twisting in place, we then position each loop around a circle.
• To cover up all the knots and florist wires, we then cut and fold in the sides of a small piece of the satin ribbon, keeping it folded with some fabric glue.
• We then wrap this around the center, setting it in place with the same glue.
• Finally, we seal the tail ends of the satin using a lighter.
• And there you have it!

How to Use Wholesale Satin Ribbon For Your DIY Wedding

Double sided satin ribbon is the perfect accessory for any DIY wedding. It’s great when you buy it wholesale because you’ll be able to afford a number of different colors, instead of spending money on all the stuff that’s overpriced when you pay someone to do it for you.

DIY Wedding Uses for Double Sided Satin Ribbon to Save You Money

If you’re thinking of a DIY wedding, first choose your color palate. Once you decide what colors to use for your wedding, you can invest in a few spools of wholesale satin ribbon to do your invitations, your favors, decorations, and even to wrap your bouquet. By adding a piece of wholesale satin ribbon to your favors, you make them look fancy, and when you write out guests’ names it shows that you’ve given your favors a personal touch. Adding satin ribbon to your decor and hair are quick ways to add some color and to save money on pieces of a wedding that are normally much more expensive.

…So You Can Spend a Little More On

You definitely want to capture the moment in a professional way. Spend some of the money you saved by using wholesale satin ribbon on a great photographer. Cake too. Even if you’re a pro baker, you may want to rethink baking a cake for your entire party. The food and drink are the same way; if you think you can have a great wedding without an open bar, think again. And as far as making sure everything’s perfect for the day, you may want to hire a wedding coordinator so you can relax a little and savor your perfect day.

Wholesale satin ribbon can definitely save you money for your DIY wedding, but let’s face it, you’re only getting married once (we hope!), so you might as well enjoy it and spend what you save on the stuff that counts!
