Hi! This is Sandy with Afloral and today, I’m going to you how make a sunflower boutonniere. This is a sunflower and our number is FPS 193. This is a lovely bush. You could use this very nicely to put in a basket or vase and we’re going to use it to make corsages and boutonnieres out of. The flowers are at good size, not too big so we won’t embarrass any man, they don’t like to wear big flowers. And we’re going to just cut one sunflower off and I’ve pulled off the leaf because we’d like to use that in the background.
So we have one flower and a little floral tape, and I’m going to tape the stem because it’s plastic and when we do this, then it’s a hand wrapped stem and that’s much more expensive looking, and more realistic looking and that’s what we’d like. We’d like the inexpensive cross of the silk flowers but we want them to look as natural as possible. And then the leaf that was actually on the stem, we’re just going to place that behind the flower and we’re going to tape that on with the floral tape as well.
If you haven’t use floral tape before, remember to stretch it and it will stick to itself. So I fold it over the stem and crease it or pinch it tight, and then twist the wire. And then we have a cute little boutonniere all ready to go. Wasn’t that quick and easy? Good luck.
