I'm using a leaf from an Asiatic lily to create more interest for this boutonniere. I like using different foliage to give fresh and unique looks to every design I create.
Pierce the leaf with a florist wire in a stitch pattern as shown below.
Fold both ends of the wire down, creating a wire stem that is longer.
Use florist tape to secure the wire to the bottom of the leaf. I like to create a slightly concave look to the leaf (gently folded inwards).
Most professional florists use a product that is used to polish, clean and seal fresh leaves. Leafshine is one of my favorites to use. It does come in a smaller can for a single wedding use.
