Flower Boutonnieres

Green Mum Tutorial

Create a dramatic finish for your flower boutonnieres by wrapping the taped stems with decorative wire and sweeping the wire up and around the stem in a curving motion.

After making your bottom loop, bring the wire behind the stem, curve out a large loop and bring the cut end up and around the front and behind the flower heads.

The wire is very mallable and can be manipulated easily into shape with just your fingers.  Take care to bend the wire smoothly to create an even line rather than sharp bends and twists.
