Little Flower Ring Pillow

by My DIY Wedding Day
Tutorial from My DIY Wedding Day - There are so many fun things to do with flowers at your wedding. Here’s an idea from the ladies at Flower DIYvas that we just love.
Give your ring bearer pillow flower power in seven easy steps.

NOTE: This tutorial belongs to My DIY Wedding Day

1 in. thick artificial floral foam
button mum flowers
Black boutonniere pins
1 yd. of ½ in. ribbon
Step 1: With the knife, score the foam to the desired size and snap off any excess. Bevel the corners for a pillow shape.

Step 2: It’s time to prepare the flowers. Use the clippers to cut off the blooms, leaving no stem. Next, push a pin through the center of each mum.

Step 3: You’ll need to assemble the flowers in rows. Start in one corner, on the beveled edge of the "pillow", and carefully pin the mums into the foam. Complete all of the outside edges first.

Step 4: To fill in the top and sides, continue adding mums and stagger the blooms so that all of the gaps are filled.

Step 5: Once all of the sides and top are done, gently flip over the pillow and finish the bottom.

Step 6: Wrap the pillow with ribbon, like a gift box. Tie a double knot on the top so the ribbon doesn’t slip, and secure with a few pins pushed through the knot.

Step 7: Secure with a pretty bow.
