Gather Your Supplies
For the bouquet you will need: assorted flowers/garden clippers /ribbon/floral pins/scissors /rubber band /Mason jars
Make Them Pretty
Clean and dry your bouquet stems. Remove any leaves that remain on the lower three quarters of the stems.
Arrange Your Bouquet
Hold the stems in your left hand and add each bloom one by one until you are satisfied with the size and arrangement of your bouquet.
A Little Helper
Take a rubber band and wrap it around the upper portion of the bouquet stems to help keep the flowers in place.
Wrap it Up
Start at the top of the stems, begin to tightly wrap the ribbon around the bouquet. Insert a pin at an angle. Continue tightly wrapping the entire length of the stems until there is approximately four inches of stem remaining.
Pin it Up
At the base, trim the ribbon and insert a pin at an angle to keep it in place. Insert more pins, at an angle, along the ribbon.
Trim the stems flush a couple of inches below the end of the ribbon. For easy transport and fresh bouquets, store them in quart sized Mason jars with a little bit of water until ready for use.
