10 Simple Steps to Make your Own Bouquet
  1. Gather materials: Fresh flowers, floral tape, floral scissors, floral wire, and ribbon.
  2. Choose your flowers: Select flowers that complement each other and have a similar vase life.
  3. Cut the stems: Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle, about 1-2 inches from the bottom.
  4. Arrange the flowers: Begin arranging the flowers in your hand, starting with the largest blooms first.
  5. Secure the stems: Wrap floral tape around the stems to hold them together. Make sure to wrap tightly and cover all exposed stems.
  6. Add filler flowers: Fill in gaps with smaller flowers and foliage.
  7. Wire the bouquet: Wrap floral wire around the stems, about 3 inches from the top. This will help secure the bouquet and make it easier to hold.
  8. Wrap with ribbon: Tie ribbon around the stems, covering the floral tape and wire. Make a bow or knot, depending on your preference.
  9. Trim the stems: Cut the stems to your desired length, making sure all stems are even.
  10. Display and enjoy your bouquet!
