Pixie pins aren't meant to attach boutonnieres to lapels. Instead, they are dainty pearl headed pins that can be added to flower centers, pinned down boutonniere stems and used in so many other decorative ways.
Only 1" long, they come 100 to a box and come in blue, red, orange, champagne, green, silver, pink, purple as well as the traditional black and white.
This is a very inexpensive way to add a rich look to flower designs and you'll love the ease of the pins already being cut to a convenient length.
Remember the slight indent in the center of the flower when I wired the Aster's stem?
Even a closeup shows that the addition of a pink pixie pin conceals any mark on the flower middle and adds a dainty jeweled look to the bloom.
