How to Make a DIY Sola Wood Flower Boutonniere
Follow this step-by-step tutorial to see how easy it is to craft your own boutonnieres out of Sola Wood Flowers!
STEP 1: Stem the Sola Wood Flowers
Grab an 18 gauge wire and apply hot glue to the tip. Carefully push into the base of the flower and hold for a second. Let the glue dry and make sure the flower is firmly attached to the stem.
STEP 2: Start with the Focal Flowers
Put together the three stemmed mini sola flowers and arrange them with varying heights. The bunch will be the focal point of your arrangement. Wrap the stems with floral tape.
STEP 3: Add in fillers
Add in the fillers starting at the back of the flowers working your way to the sides.
Arrange the fillers in layers to give more texture and depth. Secure the stem with floral tape.
Continue adding more greenery to the sides and back. These will provide extra support to the delicate sola flowers and dried fillers.
Layer in a few sprigs of dainty baby’s breath as the final touch.
STEP 4: Cut the excess stems
Ideally, the final stem length should not be more than two inches nor less than an inch.
STEP 5: Wrap the Stem with Burlap Twine
Squeeze a dab of glue slightly above the topmost part of the floral tape. Stick the burlap twine then twist and wrap until the stem is fully covered. Secure the end with hot glue.
STEP 6: Insert the boutonniere pin to the stem ready for pinning.
And with that, you’re ready to use and enjoy this beautiful boutonniere for the big day!
