what about something like this…http://www.etsy.com/listing/61327841/birch-bark-heart-pin-boutonniere?ref=cat2_gallery_40Birch Bark Heart Pin/ Boutonniere

They look pretty easy to make… buy plain wooden hearts online or at a crafts store, a roll of twine, paint (maybe using gray for the writing or paint the whole heart gray), im not sure you need to attach a piece of felt to the back, but then buy the pin to attach to the back…. it seems easy and would go with your rustic theme… OR buy them from the etsy shop i found them at LOL but i think it is a little pricey… $6 each…. Maybe since you need  they will give you a discount…. Good luck!!

I love the  PP’s suggestion… so sweet.  We were going to go with ribbon & a vintage button, something like this photo w/ the striped ribbon only, no blue ribbon behind it.  it’s not super rustic, but we wanted something simple w/ a vintage element.  we ended up making our own bouts w/ simple ivory roses, cost us less than $10 for all of them and took about an hour, BUT we only had to make 7.

Here are the rustic boutonnieres our groomsmen will be wearing.  Fiance will wear something similar but slightly different.

Sorry the picture quality is kinda bad.  I took this with my phone in low lighting.

How about “berries”

These are mine, but forget the feathers, what about just the white berry part with more of it?

We did paper flowers for our bouts & really they could be used for any theme depending on what kind/print of paper you used

We had a bright 60s/70s retro theme so ours fit with that..

All of them

I’m doing the last picture exactly but some slightly different stuff in front with loose weave burlap as leaves. I’m going to first glue the burlap to some already cut out brown postal paper and cut it out as a pair to prevent major fraying that will happen otherwise 🙂

EDIT: Instead of the green florist tape around the bottom, it will be twine with a pink bow

I am thinking about these for the guys (but now may go with that first feather one someone posted):

And these for the gals:

To tacky?
