DIY Bouquet & Boutonniere: Desert Theme

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

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.
