DIY Wedding Flowers: Carnation Cones + Burlap Bouquets

by Emma Arendoski

When it comes to wedding flowers and bouquets, the prettiness factor is in the presentation. Today we are showing you two unique ways to present flowers so they will look their very best.

Carnations have typically been given a bad name as a cheap filler flower. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though; in fact, it’s an advantage for crafty brides embarking on this charming DIY, especially in large quantities. Leave it to the Martha Stewart design team to give “>carnations a fresh new face with these adorable carnation cones. Not only do they offer pretty presentation, but they are easy to make! Get the diy tutorial here to make them yourself! Spotted via Martha Stewart.

These are entirely too cute! I am also not a fan of carnations, but when they are squished together they really do look lovely and create such a whimsical look.

Aleah,
Love how you say it just like I do.. “squished” together. You need a lot of these carnations to make them look full, which is why I think they are given such a bad name. But, when presented in these cones they can look pretty lovely! Thanks for the comment!

Swooning over those carnation cones! They remind me of ice cream (oh, so that’s why I love them so much!)
