Step 1

It’s the day after the wedding and your bridesmaids’ hair is still perfectly coiffed thanks to the entire bottle of Aqua Net that’s holding it in place. You’re having a brunch so they will be wearing different outfits for the morning festivities. Good thing you gave them a headband to put in their hair to change it up a bit :)

If your besties spend a ton of time in the kitchen, they will love this adorable apron bouquet wrap. When they unwind the cotton fabric from their flowers, they’re going to be so surprised to find that it’s more than just a wrap. Start by cutting a rectangle of fabric approximately 1 ¾ feet by 1 ¼ feet.
