DIY Yarn Ball Boutonnieres
This project sent by Stephanie is a kid-friendly alternative to the traditional boutonnieres. It’s simple, easy to make and so adorable – specially when the flower girl has a matching yarn basket. Too cute for words.
What you’ll need:
– Floral Wire
– Floral Tape
– Jewelry Pin
– Glue Gun
– Wire cutters
Create mini yarn balls by rolling yarn around in a small ball pulling taught. Once ball is formed cut the yarn and glue end of the mini ball. With the pencil in one hand, wrap a piece floral wire (about 8 inches) around the pencil stopping about 2 inches from the bottom (leaving straight) . Slide the pencil out. Now you have a corkscrew. Put a piece of glue on the top of the corkscrew and insert into mini yarn ball. Make two of these. Bunch them together and wrap the ends with floral tape to make a “stem”. Glue a jewelry pin on the back.
So sweet! Wouldn’t these be perfect with all the yarn stuff from Engaged?? One of my knitting friends has got to get married so I can suggest all these wonderful ideas. I’m a sucker for anything yellow and grey, too.
love these! yellow and gray is a favorite of mine as well!
I love these! Sweet and seems simple!
So cute! And they won’t wilt or get crushed by the kids playing.
AMAZING! I love how Stephanie really thinks outside the box! These are so clever in their simplicity!
DARLING!!!!!!! Oh my gosh…the little models in their little outfits with the little flag and those little bouts!? I DIE!
Super cute, do I recognize those children?
