I am attempting to make boutinieres out of spark plugs and metal flower pieces. Clearly, it needs something. But I feel like it would look awful if I added a fake flower, because it’s obviously metal and then just….plastic fake flowers lol. I’m hoping someone has some fresh ideas that I haven’t thought of! Help me bees!!

Maybe a metal leaf behind it?

That looks really cool! I vote for a leaf or swirl with beads as well.

I think a leaf would add just what it needs! I’m also all for adding a bit of color in beads or something like that. 🙂

I just thought of something else! If you want to add color, wiring in sea glass instead of beads would look cool.

i thought of some curlicues made of high gauge wire right away, but of course i couldnt find a single image to illistrate what i mean… this was as close as i could get. i think theyre earrings, but you get the idea.

Thanks everyone! I definately want a pop of color in there. I like the leaf idea because we’re getting married at a lodge in the woods that overlooks a pond, so that is perfect. But a metal leaf? Fake leaves might not look right. Why is this so hard?!

A copper leaf would be cool. Adds some color and keeps the idea streamlined.
