I like to make a wedding boutonniere special, with lots of attention to detailing. That's why using decorative wire is so much fun. This 12 gauge wire is extremely easy to manipulate into all sorts of interesting designs.
I tend to draw out a pattern on paper first before I begin twisting the wire.
I deliberately built two loops in the design. This is where I'll squeeze the armature around the boutonniere stem.
This wire is available in 17 cool colors and comes 39 feet to a bolt.
Placed the first loop against the front of the boutonniere, going about halfway down the stem.
Pull the second loop behind the stem, placed at the same spot on the back.
