I saw these on Martha Stewart Weddings and I absolutely love them.
Problem is I don’t live anywhere near any trees with pinecones so DIYing these would be difficult. I’ve been searching all over to find a seller who makes something similar but I can’t find anything. The only pinecone boutonnieres I can find have full pinecones in them, which is not what I want.
Has anybody seen these for sale anywhere or know a seller who would be able to make them if I contacted them?
And on a side not, what do you think of them? Cute?

OMG ADORABLE!!! I love them – they add such whimsy and character!!
You know, I know that around me, Michaels and other craft stores sell bags of pinecones all the time!
Here is from Amazon:
Seriously, google ‘bag of pine cones’ and there is tons of stuff that comes up! Please let us know how they turn out if you diy!

Those are REALLY cute! I feel like you’d have to dissect the pinecone to make them lay flat like that, but I imagine with a bag of pinecones, a boxcutter, and a hot glue gun, you could get it sorted out with a few trial runs.

That’s true. I didn’t even think of buying pine cones online. You can buy anything online! I keep having to remind myself that even weird things like this are available.
I wonder if only a certain species of pinecone has such a pretty underside?
Obviously I’m a huge outdoorsy person, lol. No, but FI is and I really think he’d like these. I’ll run it past him before I start buying stuff to try it.

This seller sold some rosette style bouts previously. I’d contact them!

there are several different types of pine cones (based on which species it came from) and the one’s in the OP’s picture are fairly squat to begin with (whole) so I doubt it would take much work to get the desired effect, as it looks like the picture is showing the bottom of the cone (where it would attach to the branch) facing out. So Only the top (conical part) would be lobbed off.
If you do get some cones to DIY make sure they are dry before you start working with them. The insides of each cone are loaded with sap and pollen which can be very sticky. To get sap off a knife or box-cutter try rubbing alcohol.

They look like a slice off the bottom of a Siberian pine cone to me.
