Why and How to Wire and Tape Flowers
If glue is great, why would you ever wire and tape flowers?
Because wiring and taping individual flowers for corsages, boutonnieres or bouquets excels in certain applications. Hand-wiring, unlike Myspace and super low-rise pants, might always be with us.
There are weak, brittle, crooked or too-short stems. Likewise there are flowers with heavy heads. There are long designs, like the ultra-long extension of a cathedral cascading bouquet. Likewise there are clustering delicate stems.
A wire is placed up through a shortened stem, extended past the disc or dome-shaped flower head like a daisy or mum and bent into a small hook and pulled back down through the center of the flower. The wire is taped to the stem at the base of the bloom.
If inserting a hooked wire into the throat of a hyacinth or similar flower, the wire can be bent into the hook first, inserted from above, and taped where it emerges from the flower at the lower end.
Inserting a heavier wire, like an 18-guage, vertically up through a shortened stem and then piercing or cross-piercing the stem horizontally just beneath the bloom. Pull the wires down alongside the stem and tape.
