Step 8: Finishing touches

Congratulations on completing your boutonniere! Whoever has the pleasure of wearing it is surely a lucky guy/gal! To add a final touch, embellish with colored ribbon of your choice. Use a boutonniere pin to secure to your special someone's lapel.

Love the look? Feeling ambitious? Go balls to the wall with felted balls as centerpieces or as a bouquet! Vary the quantity and sizes of your balls for a modern or vintage romantic look; the possibilities are endless!

This instructable inspired ALL of the floral decor for my wedding. I used them to accent the floral arrangements my friends, family and I put together in borrowed vases, and even in my bouquet. Thank you so much for this idea!

I re-read and re-watched your instructable and laughed when I read this: &quot;...The stabbing motion and crunching sound of the needle in the foam pad were a great form of stress relief...&quot;<br><br>I ought to try that for my stress relief! Repetitive motions do help me with stress. For example..knitting is a form of stress relief!<br><br>THanks for a great idea!
I was going to ask... did you ever stab your finger by accident? That would be painful
Yes, I did. It hurts a lot!
Nice ible! Very clever!
Thanks! All the cleverness comes from my better half ;)
what a clever idea... I have not seen this prior to your wedding.
very entertaining instructable. organized, professional and easy instructions. Love the idea of a different approach for making boutonniere instead of the cookie cutter traditional ones.<br><br>great, creative idea and nothing was left out ! A novice can follow instructions and be successful!!!! I love real flowers but the BALL idea is fabulous.
