Today we have a little country chic design to share that will add a bit masculine flair to your big day: Shotgun Shell Boutonnieres.
Go Shooting! Hello stress relief! Go out and unload a 12 gauge with your hubby to be, or maybe with your MOH! Be sure to take safety precautions on the range and pick up all of the used shells – you’re going to need them.
To make the perfect boutonniere you’ll need the supplies:
– Super Glue
– Floral Foam
If you choose to paint the shells in your wedding color do that now before you continue on.
Take your shells and super glue one pin to each, this will allow you to keep the boutonnieres on the groomsmen day of. Tip: Remember super glue does not always dry clear!
Wrap twine the around the shell avoiding the pin on the back.
Finally, add some flowers! We love the idea of wildflowers here and have the perfect solution to keeping them beautiful all day.
Cut some floral foam to fit inside the shell and soak it in water. When ready, stick the flowers into the foam and place into the shell. This will not only keep your flowers alive longer but also more stable!
