Are you looking for ways to cut costs on your wedding or looking to add some personal touches? Here is a great D.I.Y. to make your own boutonnieres. This Tutorial is super simple but the final results are beautiful! And the best part is its totally budget friendly.
Step One: Gather your tools
- Flowers and greens of your choice ( We used Roses, Lily stems, Hawthorne Berries, Ferns, Pussy Willows and some random greenery filler. )
- Hot glue gun
- Floral tape
- Wire cutters and scissors
- Yarn or ribbon of your choice
Step Two: Start with your greenery and snip to length. Arrange it to your liking. Once you have arranged it to your desired look, wrap with floral tape.
Step Three: Now add your additional florals or details until you achieve your desired look. Once you like how it looks wrap all stems together with more floral tape.
Step Four: Pick your decorative wrap. Here we are using a piece of yarn but feel free to use ribbon or whatever you like. Cut a generous amount of yarn, we will trim the excess off after.
Step Five: Use your glue gun and put a strip of glue along the back of the floral tape and start wrapping your yarn around the stems.
Step Six: Once all the yarn is wrapped nicely around the stems, trim excess yarn off and secure with a dab of hot glue.
