Add black-sequin flowers to a bouquet of white hydrangeas for a sophisticated look.
Fold a piece of floristry wire in half and use a glue gun to attach to the back of the sequin flower. Bind it just beneath the flower with green floristry tape; this will keep the two stems of wire together. Insert into the bouquet at evenly spaced intervals. Bind the stems with ribbon and fasten with pretty pins.
