You can make a colourful shoulder or wrist corsage with Gerbera daisies. Gerbera daisies come in a variety of colours and match well with simple floral accessories, such as ribbons, berries, lace, green leaves and other small flowers. There are many different ways to combine Gerbera daisies to make a corsage that is perfect for a special occasion, such as a prom, dinner dance or wedding.
Make a simple corsage by using one Gerbera daisy and ribbon. Back a white Gerbera daisy with a simple twisted bow of white organza by gluing the ribbon onto the flower with a glue gun. Pin this simple corsage onto a black tuxedo jacket or dark gown. Another simple corsage idea that features one white Gerbera daisy involves backing the flower with white organza ribbon and a second, pastel-coloured ribbon that highlights a colour in the wearer's garments.
Berries and Leaves
Create a more full corsage with a large peach-coloured Gerbera daisy and some berries and leaves. Add green berries and leaves by binding them to the daisy with floral tape. Experiment with red-toned leaves, such as red huckleberry leaves, or dark red berries as accents to the peach Gerbera daisy. Wind some delicate white lace around the stem of the corsage to finish it off.
Create a bit of sparkle on your corsage by adding gold glitter to a white Gerbera daisy with a green centre. Spray a light coating of flower fixative onto a daisy and lightly sprinkle gold glitter over the petals. Wait for the fixative to dry, and then spray a second coat of fixative to keep the glitter in place. Add some small, dark, glossy green leaves to the daisy. Bind the corsage together with floral tape and finish it off with a bow of gold and green organza for backing or as a decorative add-on to the corsage's stem.
Create a wrist corsage with a pink rose as its centrepiece. Use floral tape to add green leaves and surround the pink rose with small pink and white Gerbera daisies. Back the corsage with a twist of white and pink organza ribbon. Add on a separate 6- to 8-inch piece of white satin ribbon to tie the corsage onto your wrist.
Layer two bright red Gerbera daisies one underneath the other to create a holiday corsage. Add ivy leaves under the lower daisy or arrange glossy dark green leaves around the daisies. Add some bright red holly berries to the mix. Back the corsage with a slightly darker shade of red organza ribbon and gold metallic ribbon loops to give it a holiday sparkle.
Gerbera daisies can wilt and turn brown in a very short time during warm weather. Create your June wedding Gerbera daisies corsage from three silk Gerbera daisies. Arrange two hot pink silk daisies atop a bright yellow silk daisy. Back the corsage with flat green silk leaves with their points angled outwards in different directions. Add a bit of white silk baby's breath amongst the leaves, and fasten the mix together with floral tape.
