Budget-Friendly DIY Wedding Flowers Project- Texture-Rich Boutonnieres

Hello! Lucky just released a fabulous new book, Handmade Weddings, for crafty brides. You’ll find DIY wedding projects for all styles and endless inspiration for your upcoming nuptials! Since texture is huge for 2011 weddings, I thought it would be fun to share a texture-heavy DIY project from Hello! Lucky’s Handmade Weddings book. And... please excuse the crude iPhone photo above! It does no justice for the beauty of these bouts! Tallow Berry and Cotton Bud Boutonnieres for Your Groom- This simple and budget-friendly boutonniere project will add dreamy texture to your organic and modern wedding. Materials and Tools - 1 bunch Texas tallow berries (~12 stems) - 1 bunch cotton buds (available only during the Fall months) - Brown floral tape - 3 yards of quarter-inch ribbon or twill tape - 4-6 corsage pins - Materials: Ruler, scissors, hot glue gun and glue sticks Step 1- Bundle the berries and buds Bundle 3-4 berry and cotton bud stems into a visually-appealing bundle. Secure the boutonniere bundle with brown floral tape. Step 2- Wrap the stems Cut an 8-inch length of ribbon, and secure one end with hot glue to the middle section of the stem. Wrap the ribbon tightly around the stems (you'll wrap several times), trim the ribbon end, and secure using another dab of hot glue. Cut a second 6-inch length of ribbon, and tie it in a bow in the middle of the wrapped stem area. Note- to cover the entire stem from top to bottom, you'll need a 12-inch length of ribbon. Step 3- Finish the bout Insert a corsage pin into the back of each boutonniere, and you're done! On a scale from 1 to 10, how would you rate the simplicity of this DIY wedding flower project? I'm confident that I could pull this one off, but we want to hear from you! Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
