In a previous post I shared how much I enjoyed learning how to make foam flowers! I've made many hairpiece/haircombs for my Etsy shop. This time I decided to apply that knowledge to a wedding sash.
I began with a two inch double faced satin (champagne colored) ribbon. I then added a really unique lace applique that had both champagne and off white threads; cutting and placing it onto the sash.
To make the flowers, I start with just plain white foam. While it does come in a variety of colors, they're extremely vibrant, and I like more subtle colors for many of my wedding projects. In this case I wanted a blush color.
You can use pastels, stamp ink or in this case, I actually chose to use craft paint and a small brush. I did that after I cut out the flowers, but before I began the process of actually shaping the foam.
For additional embellishments, I hand sewed on pearls, crystals, and gold beads. For some sparkle I added clear sequins as well. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. All my ribbon sashes are about 3 yards long, which makes for a beautiful bow with extra long tails to drape down the back of the gown.
A sash is a great way for the bride to add a touch of the wedding color palette, while also adding a lovely accent to her gown. Not to mention, it really shows off that waistline quite nicely!
