Floral Design 101 :: How to create a flower girl wand

How to make a flower girl wand:
First I start with a bouquet holder which I soak thoroughly in water. I then glue the bouquet holder inside a bamboo stake. The bamboo is hollow which is perfect for inserting the bouquet holder and can easily be cut to the length you desire.

Next I use the Design Master Tack 2000 and spray it evenly over the bamboo, I do this at the top and do do it in sections as I work. Next I start wrapping the ribbon tightly around the bamboo:

The tight ribbon wrap has been completed around the bamboo. Design Master Tack 2000 dries quickly which is wonderful when working on these projects:

Next I position the flower girl wand in a vase to hold it in place while I’m designing the flowers. I start with some “placement flowers” and work on the shape I desire:

Keep filling in the flowers until there are no holes in the flower girl wand design:

Next, select some ribbon streamers and tie this onto the top of the wand where the bouquet holder rests on the bamboo. Tie these ribbon streamers on very tightly and they will hid any last showing mechanics. I do recommend spraying Crowning Glory on the finished floral design and letting it dry completely before placing in your floral cooler:

In addition to the Crowning Glory I used Design Master Tack 2000 and Oasis Floral Adhesive Glue for this project:

    Love this! Question though: How long will the flowers last? Want to do this for my flower girls but don’t want the flowers dying on us before the ceremony.
