DIY Boutonniere

Project type: Wedding Accessories

Planning a winter wedding?  This DIY boutonniere designed by White Lily Lane, with faux flowers and greenery from Afloral.com, is a fun and easy DIY project for the bride to be!

DIY Boutonniere

For this boutonniere you will need to collect a variety of silk flower stems and greenery.  Smaller flower heads and artificial bushes are perfect for this type of DIY.  This design features mini ranunculus bush, boxwood, gold leaves, baby's breath, and assorted filler flowers. You will also need stem wrap, decorative floral wire, wire cutters and a corsage pin

DIY Boutonniere

Use a layering technique and build the stems toward you. Use your fingertips to hold the stems tightly together.
**Pro Tip** This first 'base' layer is typically the longest stem.

DIY Boutonniere

Continue layering the stems by adding a greenery, like boxwood, on the gold leaf.  Next add a filler stem, slightly angled toward one side. 

DIY Boutonniere

Begin adding your flowers.  Start with the smaller flower heads, like Baby's Breath.  The ranunculus will be the focal point of this boutonniere.
**Pro Tip** This focal flower is typically the shortest stem.

DIY Boutonniere

Rearrange the stems, if needed, to fill in any holes. Keep your focal point front and center. Add a bit of bling as an accent.  A little decorative wire or a rhinestone spray can give your boutonniere a little extra sparkle for a glam wedding. 

DIY Boutonniere

Floral tape the stems together. Pull it tight so the tape sticks to itself. Trim the bottoms of the stems for a clean finish.

DIY Boutonniere

You now have a beautiful boutonniere, handmade and ready for your wedding day.
