Buttonholes

I have been busy again, this time making buttonholes. I tried to design them to look wintery, as its still so cold and the trees are bare. I've just used simple materials - ivy, hazel and roses.



This one is more a boutinniere, I added the pompom chrysanthemums and ribbon with looped hazel to give a different look.



This last one is for the ladies, a lovely corsage or hair piece made with fresh ranunculus, inspired by this blog post. Its one of my favorite winter flowers. This one could also be adapted to be worn on a hat or handbag.
