Spring Bouquet

Before we know it Spring will be here and that means the debut of flowers we haven’t seen in months — and the blush pink hues and ivory blooms you see here top my list for warm weather floral favorites. Florist Petal Pixie and photographer Tonya Peterson came together to showcase this fluffy, showstopping bouquet, along with two options for matching boutonnieres.

DIY Autumn Leaf Bouquet

I don’t know what it’s like in your neighborhood, but when I step outside my backyard is filled with leaves. So I thought I would share with you a simple and fun technique to turn your leaves into roses.


  • 10 colorful maple leaves per flower in various sizes (they should be dry & freshly fallen, so they are pliable). 
  • short twigs
  • scissors
  • floral tape


1. Using one of the smaller leaves, place the colorful side down and fold the points in. Begin to roll the leaf from one side.

2. Take a second leaf and fold the center point down. Place the first rolled leaf in the center, fold down the side points on the second leaf and wrap both sides around the first “bud.”

3. Continue to add leaves, rotating the flower as you go to get an even size. Work with the smaller leaves at the center and the larger ones toward the outside. When you rotate, it also helps to keep the petals tucked in so that it doesn’t unravel.

4. When you have added all your leaves or reached the desired size, pinch the leaf stems tightly and begin to wrap with florist tape. Trim the stem ends by cutting with scissors.

5. Finally, if you are wanting a “long stem,” use a stick and attach to the flower by wrapping it with a bit more florist tape.

6. You’re done!
