How to Make a Corsage

Seeded Eucalyptus Leaves

There are a lot of different kinds of greens you can use to compliment your corsage and boutonnieres.  Salal leaves, ivy, dusty miller and leather leaf fern also are good choices.

As you can see, a single bunch of seeded eucalyptus is plenty to use as accents for corsages, boutonnieres and bouquet work.  I see no need to be forcing my customer to buy five bunches or more like some wholesale sites require if the bride does not have need for that much greenery!

The leaves have a lovely light green color and a elongated shape that gives a unique look.

A small spring provides enough leaves for one corsage.

I snip the stems off the leaf and check carefully and snip away any blemished on the leaf.
