A men's accessory - a boutonniere, as a sign of loyalty to his chosen one, should adorn the groom's wedding outfit. The buttonhole is not just the delights of modern fashion, but, first of all, tradition. To emphasize the inextricable link between the bride and groom will help the same flowers in the manufacture of boutonnieres and bridal bouquets.
Since the boutonnieres can complement the outfits of invited guests or witnesses, the boutonniere of the groom should be more luxurious than the rest. Thus, the boutonniere shows the significant role of the groom.
As a rule, men prefer laconic boutonnieres, complemented by expensive jewelry. Today you have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with step-by-step instructions for making a brutal buttonhole offered by the wedding portal www.articlewedding.com.
Materials and tools:
- carton boxes;
- three types of buttons;
- two kinds of feathers;
- pins / hair clips;
- PVA glue;
- hot glue gun;
- a large needle and thread floss;
- bamboo skewers (sticks).
First you need to cut a leaf-shaped cardboard. Draw in pencil the desired shape of the leaf and cut.
From burlap it is also necessary to cut out the shape of the leaflet. To do this, attach the drop-shaped cut cardboard to the burlap, attach and cut with scissors.
Spread a cardboard leaf with PVA glue. Glue a piece of burlap to it.
Let the parts dry for a few minutes.
After the parts have dried, you can trim uneven edges..
Not necessarily, but as an additional option, we suggest you make a sheet of cardboard of a larger size compared to a sheet of burlap. This will increase the product and give it a special depth. See the photo below:
Using a new sample, cut a drop-shaped leaf from burlap and glue the leaf from cardboard as before.
Make as many leaves as many buttonholes you need to make.
Now go to the sticks. Measure the required length of the stick and shorten it. The length of the stick should not exceed 4 cm. The number of sticks depends on the number of boutonnieres..
Next, using a hot glue gun, you need to glue the stick to the center of the workpiece from the side where the burlap is located. Do the same with the rest of the sticks..
Now the stick, which acts as a stem, needs to be wrapped with a rope, while you need to use glue to fix the rope on the stem.
Take a ribbon and cut a few ribbons about 11 cm long. Using a needle and thread of a mouline thread of the desired color, sew stitches along the ribbon. Having sewed all the ribbons, tie them into a bow.
We return to the main blanks. Glue one kind of feather to the base, such as white feathers.
Then you can glue the second type of feathers, for example, feathers with polka dots.
Next, we prepare the buttons in three pieces per product. Spread nearby all the remaining details.
Now it remains to stick the details. Start with ribbons in the form of bows. A drop of glue can be put inside the bow for better fixation.
Then glue the buttons. That's all! Rustic style boutonnieres ready!
With such a beautiful boutonniere, which your groom can attach to the lapel with a special hair clip, you can do anything. Use smaller boutonnieres as decorations for wedding guests or witness outfits.
