DIY: Feather Boutonierre’s with Fly Fishing Materials
Project Time: 1 hour for 2 boutonierre’s
Project Budget: $5.00
So it’s prom season and our son’s senior prom was last night! What a fun time and he got to make memories for a lifetime with his friends last night isn’t that awesome? But you know anytime someone in our family has a special event I try to see what we can add to the event that might add a unique flavor or in this case what could help distinguish our son and his friend who happened to not only be going Stag to the prom together but were wearing cooincidentally matching tuxes. I saw a few boutonierre’s on pinterest that were made with feathers but none were exactly the style I was looking for.
I am also fortunate because my Grandpa was a fly fisherman and so is my husband so I knew he had lots of materials at his disposal. Just to make sure we also went to the craft store in case he didn’t have the style feathers I wanted for this particular project. The good news is it worked out we mixed some of his very valuable feathers with some of the craft shop feathers and the affect was quite dazzling as I am sure you will agree!
