Boutonniere, Flower Hair Comb

1. You may want to wrap some of the more delicate stems in floral tape before you wire them to the comb. This will help keep the moisture in so that they last longer.

2. Wire the flowers to your comb. It is easy to start with one along the top of the comb like pictured here, then start feeding more flowers in different directions.

3. Remember that the comb will have a front and it will likely have one side that is more visible too (perhaps this is the side that is towards your face). Keep this in mind while you are wiring the flowers to the comb so that you make everything face the direction you will want it when it is in your hair. I find that making them in front of a mirror is very helpful.

4. After you are finished adding flowers in, I lightly glue some ribbon along the back where all of the wire is so that it does not snag on your hair.

Heavy floral hair pieces like this will stay best if they are lodged into some hair that is pulled back. They need an anchor.






This floral hair garland  was made by just wiring the flowers to each other, like making a tiny garland. There is no comb base on this piece. This is a lot lighter, so it can be worn in hair that is not pulled back.

Remember to use flowers that are in season and that last well out of water so that your flowers don’t start to droop after your ceremony and you still have the whole night to go. Maybe make two, one for the ceremony and one for dinner.
