Default Beautiful! What would you use to make the vine/twig though?

I absolutely love these!! Wanted to make some for my daughter as she does not leave her house without a hair flower. What would you use to make the twig/branch/vine (whatever it's called)? It seems like it's flexible, but sturdy at the same time. Any ideas?

Pretty sure it's Floral wire wrapped with brown floral tape:

Just wrap it like you would a corsage, pull tight, just not tight enough to break while smoothing it with your thumb. Not sure about the little bead things though. Gonna guess they are a supply she purchased. HTH!

Thank you!! That makes sense. I was thinking along the lines of some of the stems and stuff they sell with the fake flowers, but it makes a lot more sense that it would be wire wrapped in the brown floral tape. Gives you a lot more control that way.

Thank you again!!!!

Yup, wire wrapped with floral tape. The "beads" are stamens. They come on small stems and can be added. I have seen them in many colors and pearl at places such as Hobby Lobby (in the wedding section where they have corsage making supplies)

That's a great idea too. I know I have some in different colors somewhere... Do you think it would be best to use 20 gauge wire so it's pretty sturdy, or something thinner? I haven't made a corsage before, but it's good to know that Hobby Lobby sells supplies for that. (with as many dances as my 2 teenage boys go to, I'm thinking maybe I should start making them! lol)

Thanks!!
