The yellow hellebore boutonniere is made with a pin/clip back. This type of jewelry can be pinned on clothing, clipped to a lapel, or even clipped in your hair. I envision the hellebore would be perfect for a modern, colorful wedding. A few minutes are all it takes to create a wearable piece of art that won’t wilt or dry up!

DIY Boutonniere project for West Elm | Michelle Edgemont

June 3, 2013

[…] West Elm (I know, I still kind of think it’s a dream) asked me to design a boutonniere project using their paper flowers. West Elm! Paper flowers! Just like the trend of Ugg boots, these boutonniere’s won’t die. You’ll have it forever to stash away in your Wedding Memories box that will live in your attic. You’ll pull it down each year, just like my mom does, and go through each trinket. You’ll think about how you spent less money than your morning iced latte and less time than it takes to cook dinner to make a whimsical, bright boutonniere. Then you’ll remind yourself how awesome you are. Confidence builder and forever-lasting flowers? Yes please. […]
