I am so excited to have my son visiting from DC this week! He and the future DIL are getting their wedding license, marriage bands, and going for their food tastings.
While he's here I got his stamp of approval on the boutonnieres for his vintage themed November wedding. I think it is so crazy that fresh flowers are no longer mandatory....Yipppeee for me, "Miss Crafter!"
I got the idea from Somerset Life Magazine, it was an article on making boutonnieres for prom
Here are the supplies I used:
The leaves were made by forming copper wire in a leaf shape. The wire was hot glued to a vintage book page that was further aged with walnut ink. Then I simply cut around the outside of the wire to make the leaf...
...I used burlap for the back...
...and hot glued it all together, finishing it by tying twine around the stem
I didn't know until my son was engaged that vintage and DIY weddings were in vogue. It's all over wedding magazines, Etsy, and Pinterest and I am beyond thrilled that my son and future DIL have embraced the theme.
The boutonnieres were fun and easy to make and the best part......My son loved it!
