How to Make a Flower Corsage

Wire and Tape Method

Pittosporum foliage is available year round and comes in both solid green and variegated green and white.

The rounded, thick leaves add variety and texture to corsages and boutonnieres.

The leaves are wired in the same manner as the Israeli Ruscus, threading the wire up through the back, over the center vein of the leaf and down on the opposite side.

Place your thumb firmly over the center where the wire pierces the leaf so no to tear it when you pull the wires down to form a single stem.

Give a twist of the wire around the base of the leaf.

Add your leaves to your growing collection.  If the flowers are opening too fast, refrigerate the blooms until you assemble the corsage.
