Hand Tied Rose Bouquet

Hand tied rose bouquets are typically finished with a ribbon wrap of some kind.  The only backdraw to this is that it should be done at the last minute, right before taking the flowers to the church.

Remember that these bouquets need to be kept in a vase of water.  This means the the ribbon can get wet or dirty from the water.

I love using the decorative wire by Oasis.  It comes in a lot of fun colors, only takes minutes to do and it is impervious to water damage!

I start by laying the cut end of the wire up against the flower handle, all the way up and through the flower stems.

I actually "hook" in on the other side.  This secures the wire firmly into the bouquet.

You will then begin carefully winding the wire around the bouquet handle, making sure to cover that cut end of the wire.

I like doing a tight wind, so that it mimics the look of a shiny ribbon.

I finish by taking needle nose pliers and turning the bottom cut end of the wire into a tight circle, making sure the sharp cut end is buries into the stems so it can't catch or snap fabric or hands.

The bouquet can now rest in a vase of fresh water, with no worries of staining ribbon or having to ribbon wrap at the last minute.

Finish by using your bunch cutters to cut the stems off exactly the length you want them to be, keeping the edges even and uniform.
