    It looks nice, but to me, it does look fake.

    I can tell it’s not a real flower, but it looks very nice.

    I don’t think the problem is the length of the stem or whats behind the flower. I think its the flower itself, since it looks so fake.  Bouts. really are not that expensive maybe like $10 each or something from the florist.

    Need a better picture! Is it yarn? That’s what it looks like to me.

    I feel like the flower almost looks as if it’s missing some petals. I think it will look nicer when you shorten the stem, and if you wrap a white or offwhite ribbon around it, it will give it a more polished look.

    As of right now, I can tell the flower isn’t real, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

    To me, it’s missing foliage.  Craft supply stores offer wired silk leaves and are very inexpensive (I believe it comes something like, 80 to a pack for $5).  I would experimenting a little more, but I do think you’re on the right track.  🙂

    My real bouts are super cheap, like $5 to $10.  While I think yours looks nice, I think you would probably be smart to just check the cost for a live flower one.

    The stem is kind of long.  I agree with Rachel_Leigh, see how much a real one would be also, because of the small craft things add up too, so you may end up spending the same.
