DIY Boutonniere

Thrifty Thursday

Okay so remember last week when I taught you how to make your own flower arrangement? Well in case you are feeling extra brave we thought it would be fun to pair that tutorial with a boutonniere for the DIY rockstar bride. Don’t worry it’s really not that hard, just like last week it’s all in the order of arranging and the materials. You got this!!

Supplies:

A few blooms/sprigs of flowers and greenery

Scissors

Twine/ribbon

Pins

Green floral tape

First you want to choose the perfect “statement” flower to really show in the boutonniere, this could also be a succulent. I am going to make mine a green mum, next I chose a few other sprigs to add some color, texture and bulk up the boutonniere a bit. I cut them all to be about 4 to 5 inches long and then de-leafed the last 2.5 inches.

Once I had my little bundle I began to wrap my green floral tap around the bundle from top to base.

Once the arrangement was wrapped in the floral tape I cut a piece of twine to cover the tape. I simply wrapped some of the twine in the floral tape end and then began wrapping the twine around the bundle.

Once the tape was mostly covered I tied off the twine and clipped the end of the extra green tape/stems.

Add a pin and voila! Time to get married!!

I suggest making these the night before or morning of the wedding to keep freshest!
