DIY Bouquet & Boutonniere: Beach Theme

Project type: bouquet

 
Bouquet:

Step 1:  Using wire cutters trim any leaves or thorns from the flower stems.

Step 2:  Gather your larger focal flowers and start arranging them into the desired shape that you want your bouquet to be.  Add in the medium and smaller sized flowers wrapping with floral tape as you go.

Step 3:  Use your filler flowers and greenery to fill in any gaps in your bouquet.  Continue to wrap the stems with floral tape.  Using wire cutters, trim the ends of the stems to the desired length.

Step 4:  Finish off the stems with your ribbon of choice, starting toward the bottom of the flower stems and wrapping all the way up to the base of the flowers.  Tie the ribbon in a knot at the base of the flowers, leaving extra length for the “tails”.  Take the sequin trim and wrap it just like the ribbon, starting toward the bottom of the flower stems and wrapping up to the base of the flowers. Secure the sequin trim by tying a knot at the base of the flowers, leaving a “tail” as well.

Boutonniere

Step 1:  Using wire cutters, trim off the individual flowers or small pieces of greenery that you will be using for the boutonniere.

Step 2:  Arrange the flowers and greenery, keeping the focal flower toward the front.  Secure the flowers and greenery with floral tape.

Step 3:  Wrap the stems with the ribbon of your choice, starting close to the bottom of the flower stems and wrapping up to the base of the flowers.  Wrap a small piece of sequin trim around the top of the ribbon and tie it in a knot.  Secure the ribbon and trim with a dab of hot glue.
