STEP 3: Start Crafting the Boutonniere
Put together the two stemmed mini sola flowers and arrange them with varying heights. The bunch will be the focal point of your arrangement. Wrap the stems with floral tape.
Add in the fillers starting at the back of the flowers working your way to the sides.
Arrange the fillers in layers to give more texture and depth. Secure the stem with floral tape.
Cut the excess stems. Ideally, the final stem length should not be more than two inches nor less than an inch.
STEP 4: Wrap the Stem with Burlap Twine
Squeeze a dab of glue slightly above the topmost part of the floral tape. Stick the burlap twine then twist and wrap until the stem is fully covered. Secure the end with hot glue.
