I've seen a few remixed boutonniere ideas floating around out there for gents — ones with Spiderman, Superman, Batman, etc. But what about boutonnieres or corsages for the lady folk?
Well, in the words of Rosie the Riveter, “We can do it!”
Here's what I used to create mine:
- Tie Tacks
- Some heavy duty glue
- Preserved Leaves
- Dried Blackberries
- Dried lavender (I got mine from my front yard)
- Action figures!
Smaller figures get one tie tack. The larger ones get two. I glued the tie tacks on first and let them dry overnight before adding the flair.
1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2. Xena: Warrior Princess 3. The X-Files- Agent Scully 4. Lara Croft – Tomb Raider 5. Velma – Scooby Doo 6. Chyna – The First Lady of Sports 7. G.I. Lady Jaye 8. Peppermint Patty – The Peanuts 9. Kathryn Janeway – Star Trek: Voyager 10. Ripley – Aliens 11. Justin Bieber (well..?) 12. Wonder Woman
Comments on Corsages made from dried leaves, blueberries, and… Wonder Woman and Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
That is absolutely fantastic! How big are the figurines and where did you get them? I’d love to do something similar for my table decor.
I want to wear these on a day-to-day basis.
Fantastic! Glad you like them! ysabelkid – I got the figurines from ebay, but I bet you could find them (cheaper) at thrift stores! The size of the figures varied — from 6″ to 2.5″. The smaller ones made better corsages because they weren’t so heavy! Would love to see what you come up with!
This is awesome! We want to do action figure super heroes for the guys, and we wanted to do something similar for the girls. Did you pin these on the dresses? I’m worried that pins would damage the girl’s dresses. Do you have any pictures of the figurines being worn that you could share? Thanks!
These corsages were pinned on sweaters… and I’m kicking myself for not taking more photos of the ladies wearing the corsages! (Everything flew by in a blur!!) But there is one photo on my site: http://alilcurious.com/2013/12/12/awesome-corsages-for-awesome-ladies/
OH MY GOD THESE ARE AWESOME!!!
Can I assume these were for a lesbian wedding? I’m marrying my partner of 16 years in April and may employ a similar idea (with boy toys) and will of course give you a shout out. SO awesome. 🙂
Congratulations!!! Well, I wish I could take credit for “inventing” this idea – but I was inspired by others… I just hadn’t seen it with female action figures. Google image search “action figure boutonniere” and be even more inspired!! Would LOVE to see what you come up with, Brent! Keep me posted!
