Wiring a Leaf
for a Daisy Boutonniere

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.
