This quick video tutorial will walk you through the process of creating a simple corsage that integrates trendy metal tones and permanent botanicals, as demonstrated by Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD. 


Vonda begins by highlighting the base of this corsage, a wholesale Fitz Design selection called the Sophisticated Lady Bracelet. This corsage will use the bronze color, but Vonda also displays two additional color options including rose gold and copper. The bracelet is currently available in 12 colors.

She also offers a quick introduction to the other accents incorporated in this piece – wired “Flash” ribbon in copper, two Spooky Leaves in glamorous gold, silk Phalaenopsis orchid blossoms in white, and a small permanent botanical succulent along with two of its leaves. 

Vonda starts the construction process by securing the remaining plastic platform with a piece of ribbon. She ties a second piece of ribbon from corner to corner, then uses it to attach a voluminous bow she created from a third section of ribbon. 

Next, Vonda prepares the plastic platform with glue. This sets the stage for glue-to-glue contact to create a much stronger bond. Durability is one of the most crucial concerns for wearable accessories like this one – strong bonds and clean mechanics ensure this piece will last throughout a long event, ideally lasting long enough to become a keepsake or memento afterward. 

By curling and flattening the long stem of the Spooky Leaf, Vonda creates a little extra gluing surface for a better hold. She glues and attaches the gold leaves on either side of the platform, before doing the same with the small wholesale artificial succulent and its companion leaves. 

Vonda then arranges the silk Phalaenopsis orchid blossoms – she places four around the edges and finishes with one slightly offset in the center.

The resulting corsage demonstrates fantastic balance. The artificial succulents pop with color, the gold leaves and sparkling ribbon add a touch of glimmer and glamour, and the silk orchid blossoms make a sophisticated yet classic statement. 

You can find all the supplies used this demonstration within the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale website. Pioneer offers a wide range of wholesale silk flowers, artificial succulents, beautiful ribbon, and wholesale Fitz Design bracelets – everything you need to create beautiful wrist corsages for any style and occasion.
