Fall is peeking around the corner and if you’re wrapping up the details for your autumn affair, this DIY is sure to delight. Dried florals are a picture-perfect boutonniere option for this time of year. Save time (and pre-wedding stress) by creating these simple yet stylish accessories in advance.
- Dried florals or silk/synthetic flowers that match your theme or colors
- Floral tape
- Ribbon or raffia
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Arrange
Arrange your florals in a way so that all the stems are gathered at the bottom. Adjust each piece to your liking. When you have everything the way you want it, wrap the stems with floral tape—and add a dollop of hot glue to make sure everything stays in place.
Step 2: Wrap and Secure
Next, cover the floral tape with ribbon, raffia or any other embellishments you want. You’ll want to add another dollop of glue here, to secure the end of the ribbon.
Step 3: Pin and Cherish
Lastly, you’ll want to glue a pin to the base of the stems so it’s wear-ready on the big day!
