DIY Starfish Boutonnière


Happy Wednesday, Lovelies! We’re kickin’ off our 1st official blog posting with a DIY inspiration to get you through mid-week! 

LOVE this idea of a simple, yet perfect, beachside wedding element – starfish boutonnière! Pick up a starfish at your local craft store, tourist store {if you live by the beach}, or order online in bundles to save. Loop a piece of twine, beach grass, or ribbon that matches your color scheme. 

Want your groom to stand out? Add a shell, sand-dollar, flower, or another personal touch to his. Pin on your dad, groom & groomsmen, & you have the perfect, DIY, low-cost seaside boutonnière! 

The girls at Better Half LOVE to craft, and this is just one example of something we can whip up for you! If you’re interested in one of our DIY ala carte items, we’d love to hear from you! Email us at ❤

Happy DIY & Happy Planning!

The Better Half Girls ♥
