Before you read this please know that this is my first Miki original project. I am so proud of myself for coming up with this project all on my own. I decided to make boutonniere's because they are so expensive. Everything flower related is way too expensive. Plus I don't even like flowers! I'm just really proud.
These are all the supplies I started with:
- - Peacock feathers that I got on amazon, and for 50 feathers it was $8.
- - Floral tape
- - Wire
- - Keys that I got on ebay 150 for $4
- - White styrofoam pearls for $1
- - Twine
- - Glue Gun
- - Scissors
I separated the white balls into stems with 3 each. I made sure that the stems were long enough for the boutonniere's.
I took the keys, and wrapped wire in the top hole. I also made sure the wire was long enough for the boutonniere. I tried to make the wire, the white stems, and the excess peacock feather all the same size, so that it would make it easier to wrap in floral tape.
Then all I did was have my sweet Jared hold them all together, while I wrapped the tape really tight around them. See how they look a little too skinny?
That is why I wrapped them in twine to thicken em' up! The twine adds a really organic look to them, which will work perfect for our theme.
