Weddings are all about traditions but sometimes it’s fun to add a new twist. More often than not, flower girls baskets of petals for throwing as they walk down the aisle. If you’re looking for unique flower girl ideas, how about an ice cream cone bouquet? Nothing says summer wedding like ice cream! Be sure to scroll down down for a complete DIY.
Flower girl ideas
If you’re not afraid of a little DIY, here are the detailed instructions for making these ice cream cone bouquets.
Supplies & equipment:
14” of ribbon (I used 1.5” width)
3 waffle cones
Hot glue and hot glue gun
Selection of colorful blooms
Cut a 14” length of ribbon
Attach the one end of ribbon to the first cone using hot glue
Fold the ribbon in half and attach the two ends together using hot glue
Attach the 2nd and 3rd cone to the 1st using hot glue and hiding the ends of the ribbon in the middle of the three cones
If needed, tuck crumpled tissue paper into the bottom of the cones. You may need it for filler and to secure the blooms firmly inside the cone
Arrange the blooms into small bundles, clipping the ends as needed using floral shears
To hold multiple stems together (if applicable) wrap them with floral tape
Add a dab of floral glue to the end the stems and place it inside the cone. The glue will keep the blooms in place for their trip down the aisle
