Hey everyone! I just wanted to share my completed Sola Wood Flower bouquets and boutonnières! I’m so happy with how they turned out. I DIY’d them and I love them! If anyone is on the fence about using sola wood flowers I highly recommend them!

    I’m debating on using them for my cake and arch. We’re they easy? How much did it cost you for a bundle?

    They were easy. I paid $208 for 8 bouquet kits, about 60 other flowers, extra filler, 100 sola buds, extra dye and shipping was super fast and free. (Free shipping over 75&dollarSmiley winking solawoodflowers.com is having a great sale right now on flower packs. I got undyed flowers and dyed them myself. You don’t need to use their dye you can use any acrylic paint mixed with water.


    For $208 I made my bouquet, 7 bridesmaid bouquets, 14 boutonnières, a flower arrangement for my welcome table and I still have flowers left.

    I didn’t think that were that cheap! Thank you! I’m just more lost so you order a box of wood flowers and then dye them and then the steams just poke in easy?! Sorry lol just seems to easy for my mind

    Yes they come in a box and you dye them in a paint and water mixture (about a 1:1 ratio of paint and water) then you let them dry for 24 hours. Once they are dry you put a little bit of hot glue on the tip of your wire stem and poke them in to the back of the flowers. They are soft and it is very easy to poke them in. The hardest part for me was trimming the wires because I have the most dull wire cutters ever lol. They are super easy! There are a ton of tutorials on you tube if you need help. Just order from the sola wood flower website directly to save money. There are other online boutiques that sell their flowers at a mark up.

    First off.. WOW! Those are beautiful! I'm using sola flowers for my wedding as well and I had a question. After you dyed them, are them brittle and not so soft? I read that you can use a mixer of vegetable glycerin to help that but I wanted someone else's opinion first.

    Other than that, I'm super happy with the decision to use them as well! They really do look real. My FH actually thought they were Smiley laugh

    Thank you! I did mix in a like one teaspoon of glycerin when I dyed them which does really help. You can also mix some glycerin with warm water and spray it on to the dyed flowers.

    Here is a video that should help. Let me know if you have any other questions Smiley smile

    You're welcome! I'd also be very cautious after you spray them not to let different colored flower touch. I'm not sure if they bleed on to other flowers but better to be safe than sorry!
