DIY Bouquet & Boutonniere: Desert Theme

View more: DIY Projects, Bouquets

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 and succulents 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.  Trim the ends of the stems to the desired length with wire cutters.

Step 4:  Finish off the stems with your ribbon of choice, starting near the bottom of the flower stems and wrapping toward the base of the flowers.  Secure the ribbon with a dab of hot glue

Boutonniere

Step 1:  Using wire cutters trim off the individual flowers or small pieces of greenery hat you will be using for the boutonniere, and cut off any leaves from the lower parts of the stems.

Step 2:  Arrange the flowers and greenery.  Secure the flowers 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.  Trim the stems to the desired boutonniere length using wire cutters.

Step 4: Secure the ribbon with a dab of hot glue.
