DIY Bouquet Cuff

For the past week I have been staring at the leftover fabric from our ring bearer pillow. Unsure of what to do with the fabric, I visited Martha’s site for inspiration. Immediately after seeing her DIY bouquet cuffs, I began sewing. I sewed three cuffs: one for myself, sister Spring Roll, and FSIL Spring Roll.

The only flowers I had to show off the cuff. Mr. Spring Roll actually surprised me with them today! 🙂

The instructions listed on the website are for a larger cuff, and in my opinion, involve unnecessary steps. Below you will find a tutorial on how I made our bouquet cuffs.

Supplies Needed:

  • ¼ yard silk fabric
  • ¼ yard Chantilly lace
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine or needle and thread


1. Measure and cut two 9” x 5” rectangles out of silk fabric and one rectangle out of Chantilly lace.

2. Place lace over one piece of silk fabric, so that it is now one rectangle. As you would to sew a pillow, pin together the lace and silk rectangle to the remaining silk rectangle. (Make sure the good sides are facing “in”).

3. Using a sewing machine or needle and thread, sew around the edges, leaving one end un-sewn to create a gap.

4. Reverse cuff by flipping the good side out through the gap.

5. Sew gap closed.

6. Wrap cuff around bouquet stem.

7. On the line where the cuff ends, pin using pearl pins.

How will you adorn the stems of your bouquet?

    These look great! I am definitely going to make these for me and my girls for my destination wedding next year. I’m not exactly sure what kind of flowers we’ll end up with, but it would be great to have these to tie everything together.
