Spray Rose & Shotgun Shell Boutonniere

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a boutonnière is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. The word comes from the French word for buttonhole, which is the British term for a boutonnière.

We have seen an increase in boutonnières made from unconventional materials.  Our week 6 boutonniere combines flowers, greenery, and shotgun shells!

      Hi Karen,
      I attached small magnets to the ribbon wrap. We have also recently used u-glu dashes to attach boutonnieres, haven’t tried the u-glu on the shells yet but I think they could work.
