DIY floral braceletFloral bracelet is a new trend in floral design. Traditional wrist corsage looks like a little bouquet; a bracelet resembles a miniature wreath around a wrist.

To create a floral bracelet we use long-lasting flowers and greens.

Flowers: hyacinths, nerine, agapanthus, wax flowers, delphinium, small mums, spray roses, ginger, amaranthus.

Greens: ruskus, eucalyptus, nagy, pittosporum.
Before using them, flowers and greens should be hydrated for two hours. You can make bracelets a day before an event and keep them refrigerated.

There are two styles of floral bracelets: natural and structured.

Natural bracelet looks like a traditional wreath with flowers and greens.

To create elegant structural bracelets we use flower petals or leaves only. Besides flower petals and greens we can use man-made materials: tiny ribbons, pearls, rhinestones, wire, etc.

As a base in floral bracelets we use ribbons or inexpensive plain plastic bracelets. We suggest using organza with satin trim 1” ribbon, 18” long. The color of a ribbon should compliment colors of flowers or have neutral green color. Plastic bracelets we cower with decorative ribbon to make the glue stick better.
Both natural and structural bracelets we always start creating from the middle of a ribbon.

Creating Spider Mum bracelet

Materials: 2 -3 Spider Mums of both yellow and white  color
18” sage green 1’ organza with satin trim ribbon
5-6 rhinestones

Tools: Glue gun, scissors, 1.5-2”D glass vase


Tie the ribbon around the vase




Get a pinch of petals and cut to the desired length




Apply glue to the cut.




Place petals on the ribbon, tightly pressing them for 5 seconds, then release, letting them naturally spread while the glue is hardening.



Keep gluing little bunches of petals, alternating yellow and white petals. Glue rhinestones between petals.



After the glue completely hardens, untie the ribbon and remove from the vase, little by little tearing off the ribbon first from one side, then the other.
