Making Boutonnieres

Decorative Wire Armatures

Making boutonnieres with stylish wire armatures can take on individual creativity determined by the shape of the flower heads and the color of the wire.

Pin the finished boutonniere to the wearer's left lapel (your right as you are facing them) of the tux, pushing the pin under the bottom side of the lapel and through the wire armature.

The boutonniere is more secure if you pin both at the top and at the bottom of the flower.

You can completely enclose the flower heads if you choose and tighten the coil so the stem is completely covered.  

The decorative wire comes both round and flat and available in thinner or thicker diameters if you wish.  Seventeen beautiful colors lets you mix and match your own wedding palate!
