Wrist Corsage

A wrist corsage is fastened to some kind of elastic wristlet band and worn on the left arm. You can speed up making these type of corsages by using Oasis Floral Adhesive to glue in flowers rather than the tiresome wiring and taping. Flower glue holds up well, even under refrigerated or wet conditions and doesn't hard the flowers in any way like hot melt glue does. Cold melt seems to work well until refrigerated. Then it becomes brittle and breaks away easily.

Stephanotis are delicate white star blooms plucked from a plant. They usually come 20 to a box nestled on cotton batting. You must use stephanotis picks soaked in flower nutrient water and a good misting of a flower sealant such as Finishing Touch. to prevent wilting. Try to avoid touching the blooms as much as possible as the oils from your hands will cause wilting.

Bling bling adds a lot to a corsage, creating extra interest and sparkle. Hot pink Gerbera daisies have been trimmed closely to give an unusual accent to this orange rose.

Use miniature Gerbera daisies (often referred to as Germini) and be sure to provide a water source by using corsage picks. Gently push an additional wire up parallel to the flower pick and "hook" it down and bury in the center of the flower. Then, using corsage tape, bind the two wires together for a secure hold.

Don't underestimate the beauty of miniature carnations. They come in so many different colors that you just can get with other flowers. Mixed with pale orange spray roses and a touch of hydrangea, this corsage is a sweet pin-on or wristlet for a delighted grandma! (Note: hydrangea wilts easily, so be sure to coat with a flower sealant and don't use for outdoor ceremonies or when the weather is going to be very hot.
