Decorate the wrist corsage

Wrist corsage

For this design I used the rosette-shaped "Echeveria". I am using both the rosettes and individual succulent leaves.

Add a small amount of glue to the base and set aside for a few seconds.

Add a small amount of glue to the base (wound) and set aside for a few seconds to allow the glue to become tacky (it will start to bubble). Glue each "flower" into place.

For a focus point I added a jet black bead.
