This is not a new ideas - florists have used products like these in all kinds of creative ways for many years.

Pixie Pins by Fitz Design
Fitz Design just introduce the new "Pixie Pin". Similar to regular
corsage pins, they come in a very short 3/4" length that is just perfect
for flower heads.
This eliminates the need to cut the corsage pins to a shorter length.
I always dip a pin into floral adhesive before pushing them into the flower head. That gives the extra security that the pins won't slip out and cause harm to anyone.
