, making corsages are fast to create and look beautiful. More and more professional florists are turning to flower glue and decorative materials to make unique, stylish wrist flowers and hold up well.
Do not mistakenly use hot or cool melt glue. They may hurt the flowers and break apart under cool, refrigerated conditions.
Wristlets come in a lot of different styles, from simple elastic to elaborate rhinestones or pearls. They all usually have a aluminum plastic prong attached to the wristlet. The tabs on these prongs bend easily and clamp down on the corsage flowers or bows for each attachment to the flowers. Florists usually use needlenose pliers to bend the prongs.
To make wrist corsage fast, lay a few fresh or silk pieces of greenery over the tabs and bend them to clamp firmly on the leaves.
Make a corsage bow with several loops. Wired or stiff ribbon works much better than fabric or unwired soft ribbon.
After making the bow, lay it over the greenery and use the tails of the bow to tie it firmly to the wristlet. Wrap it around the back and tie ON TOP OF THE GREENERY. If you tie it underneath, there will be a knot of ribbon against the inside of the wrist.
Cut the heads of the flowers short. Add floral adhesive to the bottom of the cut flower.
Glue the flower in between the loops of the ribbon. Hold firmly for a few seconds for the glue to adhere to the ribbon. Continue adding flowers until you're satisfied with the look of your corsage.
Add decorative elements, such as pearl headed pins, rhinestone pins, loops of decorative colored wire or other accents.
Mist your final corsage with a flower sealant such as
and lightly bag in plastic to hold in moisture. Re-mist often until wristlet is needed. Keep in refrigerator. Do not store near back or it may get too cold.
