prom-perfect wrist corsage

Learn how to craft your own handmade base with aluminum wire and ribbon.

Pin-on corsages are practically passé, especially for youthful consumers such as promgoers. So floral designers everywhere need to know how to create the more in-demand wrist corsage.

This one, while traditional in form, is made entirely from “scratch,” with a handcrafted base of aluminum wire to which two multiloop bows are attached. The fresh florals, which include roses, spray carnations and billy buttons, are simply glued among the ribbon loops, so a variety of products can be used to complete the prom-night accessory, including gems and jewels for added bling. ■

MATERIALS: ‘Blue Moon’ roses, spray carnations, billy buttons (Craspedia) and Hypericum from Baisch & Skinner; ribbon from Offray; Oasis™ Aluminum Wire and Oasis® Floral Adhesive from Oasis® Floral Products.
