How to Make a Boutonniere

Wiring Daisy Heads

Fresh daisies usually have multiple flower heads, so you get a lot of blooms for one grower's bunch.

I'm going to use two perfect daisy heads for this boutonniere.  I want to strengthen the flower head and make it so I can bend the face of the flower forward.

I'm going to use a 26 gauge wire to add to the stem.

Pushing up parallel to the stem, push up thru the entire flower head.

Bend the end of the wire into a fishhook or hairpin shape.

Pull the wire down gently until it is concealed in the flower center.

Tape down the wire stem with green floral tape.
