Hey guys. Wasn't really sure if this is the right forum so feel free to move it if not!!
BUT, I'm starting to make flower crowns. Process = attach artificial flowers by stem to a wire, then wrap floral wire around it. This doesn't prevent the flower from occasionally popping out or falling apart though, so I'm wondering what kind of glue would best hold it together without making a globby mess like hot glue does. And I need these crowns to hold up through the weather and elements. Smiley
Thank you guys!!

When in doubt E-6000 is your best friend.

Just make sure you're in a ventilated area.

I think a good fabric glue would also work.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Not a fan of hot glue for delicate work.  E6000 could do it.  I am also a fan of the thinner Beacon 527, or a 2-part epoxy which has various drying times, so can be very fast drying if that is what you need (like Devcon).  I would glue and use something like a clip to hold the stem in position until a good bond has occurred, then wire.
