Make This: Pink & Yellow for a Spring Fellow

I’ve been doing a lot of flower DIYs lately, probably because it’s finally spring and the flowers are so pretty. But I hope you have enough room in your DIY heart for one more at the start of this week. And I promise the next tutorial will be un-related to florals. Pinkie promise in fact. So…

Variegated kale is a new favorite of mine for bouquets, boutonnieres, and other arrangements. The leaves are so beautiful – I love the purple veins against the green. And I thought the colors would work well with yellow and pink, so I used yellow acacia and peachy, pink ranunculus to create these spring  boutonnieres.

Here’s the gist on how to make your own…

P.S. If you don’t have a wedding in the works, you can easily turn these into simple arrangements for small bud vases. Just keep the stems longer. Super easy.
