How to Make a Boutonniere

Freesia and Rose

Learn how to make a boutonniere with two bridal favorites - freesia and roses.  Both of these flowers have a sweet scent and the freesia adds visual interest with it's unique shape.

To cut down on a bulkiness, cut the rose stem short and insert a wire laterally through the caylex of the flower.

Bend the wires down laterally so they are parallel to the short rose stem.

Use floral tape to bind the wire to the flower stem.

Tape down to the bottom of the cut stem.

Cut off the excess wire and be sure that the tape covers any sharp ends.
