How to Make a Corsage
My husband recently took our daughter to our school’s Daddy-Daughter Dance, and as tradition, wanted her to have a corsage. We had ordered them for the last few years & the first 2 years they had been sweet, but last year when I picked it up I was disappointed & made a mental note to make one myself this year. It’s easier than you would think!
Make a bow that matches your attire- I used the Bowdabra & was able to make one proportionate to my daughter’s size easily. I used the May Arts 3/8” red sheer iridescent pinstripe and ¼” white silk.
Next, gather your floral supplies!
We picked up a bunch of sweetheart roses, some baby’s breath, and I cut some greens from a shrub in our yard.
Arrange your flowers & wrap with floral wire (or any lightweight wire you have on hand).
I had purchased some white floral tape from Joann’s, but you could also wrap the stems with ribbon! If you are more skilled than I you can simply pin the corsage onto your sweet girl. If you are pinning challenged, Joann’s also sells wristlet frames!
She’s ready with her custom corsage at a fraction of the cost!
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you’ve been inspired!
