Oh that title just rolls off the tongue doesn't it ~ all those lovely ‘b's!

Billy Bobs or ‘Craspedia' are so popular for weddings at the moment ~ well, yellow in general is a HUGE!

They make excellent boutonnieres because they don't actually look like girly flowers {Zee wasn't too keen on wearing his pink rose boutonniere let me tell you!} and they're just kind of fun. Billy Bobs have a bit of a 70s vibe and can work with leaves and feathers to create a rustic look or alone for a more simple, modern pop of colour on the groom and groomsmen's lapels.


These darling craspedia and skeleton leaf boutonnieres are from Faye Marie on Etsy.

They are $85 for a set of 10 and the blue mohair yarn can be customised to your wedding colours.


Or how about making your own with this simple tutorial from Woodland Dreams?

All you need are the following:

Craspedia (dried) spotted guinea feathers, faux foxtails, twine, scissors and a small glue gun and you too can be the proud crafter a few billy bob boutonnieres.

So the question is would you BUY or DIY?

{Oh how I love this cheesy slogan!}
