DIY Buttonholes

Following on from our flower trend post I thought I would share this simple DIY buttonhole idea. I made the buttonholes for the menfolk at my wedding and here is a step by step guide as to how I did it...

1. Ribbon (roughly 25cm) 2. Florist's wire 3. Three contrasting pieces of fabric 4. Pinking shears 5. Buttonhole pin 6. Florist's tape 7. Flower stems

Cut each piece of fabric into a leaf shape with the pinking shears. Make each one slightly smaller than the other, the biggest will go to the back and the smallest at the front.

Arrange your flowers and wrap them securely with the florist's wire.

Place the flowers on top of your fabric and secure tightly with the florist's tape.

Wrap the ribbon tightly around the tape making sure to cover it all. Tie together and cut any excess ribbon, leaving a little flowing free at the end. Use the pin to fasten to the lapel.

The final product and my dad proudly wearing his at my wedding.

Its like you learn my mind! You seem to know a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
I feel that you can do with some % to pressure the message house a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.

I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours lately, but I never discovered any interesting article like
yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all website
owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you
did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.
