Create a keepsake by making a bracelet corsage for your next formal event. A bracelet corsage offers a modern twist on the classic wrist accessory. Any bracelet can be transformed into a corsage in a few steps. Just choose a bracelet that matches your style and select flowers that complement your look. Put it all together to create a one-of-a-kind accessory.
Things You'll Need
- Fresh or silk flowers
- Floral wire
- Wire clippers
- Floral tape
Cut the stems of the flowers and greenery. Leave at least an inch of stem.
Cut pieces of floral wire. The pieces should be between four and six inches long.
Wire the flower. Insert the wire through the top of the stem. Pull the wire through and bend it in half. Wrap the wire around the remainder of the stem and itself, creating a new stem.
Tape the wire. Starting at the top of the stem, use floral tape to wrap the entire wire. Repeat this step for all flowers and greenery.
Arrange the flowers and greenery. Try clustering blooms together in groups of three. Add greenery to fill out the arrangement. Bend the wire to change the orientation of the flowers and greenery.
Tape your arrangement together using floral tape. Make sure there are no wire tips sticking out.
Tie the arrangement to the bracelet using fine ribbon. Secure the arrangement in at least three places. Cut the ribbon, curl it or let it hang for decoration.
Tips & Warnings
- Keep the finished corsage in the refrigerator so it doesn't wilt.
