Shaping a Decorative Wire Armature

Shaping the wire armature for your wedding boutonnieres is a little tricky at first, but using a thick dowel rod or a marker pen (like shown below) is the key to getting all your armatures the same approximate size and shape.

Slide the finished wire coils carefully off the end of the marker.

The upper coils have to be large enough around for a flower head to slip down into.

You will be gently pulling the coils apart, but you want to be careful to maintain the rounded shape when doing so.
