I’m going attempt making some bouts with fake calla lilies tonight, looked at the pins I bought and was thinking the same thing. 

If the stem is too thick, Im going to get some safety pins that have flat backs, and glue those on instead

I haven’t tried a pin yet. If it comes down to it I’ll just buy those ones with the flat backs and glue them on lol

Could you put a drinking straw over the stem, wrap it in floral tape so it looks like a regualr stem and then put the pin through the straw? I’m pretty sure that is what I will be doing 🙂

@alicroo86:  I’ve never had good luck with corsage pins, so I just used these: I made my bout, hot glued it on the flat back, and wrapped it with ribbon.

We used boutonieere pins from Michaels for our real touch calla bouts.

I used regular straight pins and pinned through the ribbon.    The pins wouldn’t go through the plastic of the stems, but they held really well though the ribbon anyway  🙂
