Now I'm going to add more shortened pins to the front of this DIY rose boutonniere.
I've already inserted four right under the base of the rose. I curl the tape stem upward until it touches the main part of the stem.
I now begin inserting the pearl pins at an upward angle down the stem, keeping the pin heads close together.
I curl up at the bottom as shown, finishing up near the tip of the stem touching the center.
