My friend is getting married and asked me to help her with the flowers. Fake flowers ended up being easier to secure and less expensive, so one of my cats and I helped her by making faux sunflower boutonnieres for the groomsmen.

Step 1: BoM

Fake flowers

Tape (if using live flowers)

Hot glue

Pins

Scissors/wire cutter

Step 2: Prep

Snip the flower head and leaves off the stem.

Step 3: Glue

I used hot glue to affix the pin backing to the head of the flower and then slid the leaves underneath the pin and added a little more hot glue. Let cool completely. Repeat with remaining flowers.

Step 4: Done!

Here are the boutonnieres we made for the groomsmen. Since they're fake sunflowers, they'll keep with no problems and are reusable.
