We are feeling extra brave so we thought it would be fun to make a tutorial with a boutonniere for the DIY rockstar bride. Don’t worry it’s really not that hard, it’s all in the order of arranging and the materials. More power to ya, or should I say Flower Power?? Haha! You got this!!

  • 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!
Have fun playing florist!
