In this D.I.Y. post we will show you step by step how to make a stunning wrist corsage. These D.I.Y. corsages are easy and fun to make. Today we will be using some left over florals and greenery from our previous D.I.Y. Boutonniere post to help keep costs down. So skip the florist, grab your bridesmaids and lets get started!
Step One: Gather your tools and supplies
- Flowers and greens of your choice ( We used Orchids, Ranunculus, blush and lace Blossoms, Lily of the Valley, Roses, Rosebuds, Hawthorne Berries and some greens. The Roses, Rosebuds, Lily of the Valley, Hawthorne Berries and greenery are left overs from our Bountonniere post. )
- Hot glue gun
- Wire cutters and scissors
- Craft foam board
- Bracelets or ribbon
Step Two: Trace two circles the same size on craft foam. Here we traced two 2.5″ circles on our foam and then cut out.
Step Three: Glue greenery to one foam circle.
Step Four: Glue any other small florals or additional details to foam circle.
Step Five: Apply a Generous amount of glue to your largest flower and attach to foam.
Step Six: Take your desired bracelet or ribbon, we are using a bracelet here. Grab your second foam circle and place it under the bracelet. Next use a generous amount of glue on the side of the foam circle, then sandwich the first foam circle with florals attached to the second circle together around the bracelet.
Step Seven: Let sit for a few minutes to make sure the glue dries and your finished!
