How to create an Air Plant and Succulent Boutonniere:

Floral Supplies Needed…

  • Small Succulents
  • Air Plant
  • 14 Gage Wire
  • Floral Tape

Create Your Air Plant and Succulent Boutonniere

  • Attach your wire to a small succulent.
  • Wrap floral tape around the wire, from top to bottom, to create a secure stem.
  • Trim the stem at about one inch.
  • Cut a piece of the Air Plant, and use the floral tape to tape it to the stem.
  • Twist the Air Plant, creating a loop and use tape to secure it in place.
  • Do the same thing with a small piece of Air Plant just to the side of the large piece for added depth and character.
  • To top it off, twist the excess wire into a small curl at the bottom to give your boutonniere a little flair!
