Crafts Wedding

DIY Corsage and Boutonniere

One of my favorite things to collect are birds nests. Over the years I have collected quite a few. A little while back HGTV asked me to come up with a fun garden-inspired corsage and boutonniere, nests immediately came to mind. I wanted to fill the nest with round blooms that resembled eggs. Ranunculus blossoms were perfect. For the boutonniere, I created a ribbon wrapped stalk of flowers and threaded them through their own mini nest. I think they are just perfect for a spring garden wedding, prom, Easter, or even Mother’s Day.

To make your own, please take a peek at my post over on HGTV Gardens. There your will find the complete step-by-step tutorial.
