One of the new trends in bridal bouquets is something called a Composite Rose or a Composite Rose bouquet. The term "composite" refers to a manmade flower which is accomplished by gluing petals together or by adding extra petals to a flower to make it appear to be a large bloom. Here I am going to show the steps to complete the task.
You will need all of your supplies laid out and ready to go because once you begin working with the glue it can be difficult to keep the process moving smoothly.
You will need roses, Oasis floral glue, a round base (I used a 6 inch cake circle and covered it with ribbon). I started with a small rose like the one pictured; the bigger rose is after I added a few layers of petals.
After separating your petals you will begin to glue them to the base of the flower leaving time in between each layer to allow the glue to dry and petal to adhere.
Add petals to the outer ring of the disk. The complete rose will not be able to support itself, therefore, the disk will alleviate the pressure from the main rose.
Before you cover the disk you must insert a hole in the middle for the stem of the center rose. Then thread the ribbon through the hole until it is completely covered.
Place the main rose (which is now a composite rose already thanks to you adding petals to make it larger) through the hole of the disk forming a much, much larger rose.
Once the top of the Composite Rose Bouquet is complete, you will need to creat a handle for her which you can do by taping or adding the stems previously broken from the roses that you used to create this beautiful bouquet. Then you will wrap the stems in fabric or rhinestones like you see here. You will also need to create a collar for the bouquet to fill it out a little more.
CAUTION: DO NOT USE HOT GLUE, THIS WILL DAMAGE THE PETAL. Also, be sure to use freshest flowers available; it is important to the overall look of the bouquet. Throughout the process be sure to keep your petals damp or in water.

This centerpiece was made for an afternoon birthday party. It consisted of yellow roses, tigerlillies, white hydrangea, and bear grass draped across the piece. I call it the veiled lady because it reminds me of a birdcage veil on a hat and the bear grass on top looks like the feather in the ladies hat.
