How to Make a Wrist Corsage With Flowers

Overview

Making your own wrist corsage allows you to be creative with the flower colors and ribbon accessory. Corsage assembly is easy with a purchased wrist corsage bracket that includes an elastic band for holding on the wrist. Choose fresh flowers that will not wilt and assemble close to the time of the event. Silk flowers are a good option for long events or outdoors events where the temperature is warm. Roses paired with baby's breath and green fern are a popular choice for a corsage.

Step 1

Cut the flowers and green filler stems to a length of 3 inches, using scissors. Wrap each stem with green floral tape.

Step 2

Bundle the flowers together by placing two next to each other, with a third flower set in front and slightly lower. The third flower can be the same flower type or a larger flower from a different variety.

Step 3

Tape the stems together with green floral tape to hold the bundle in place. Place the greens behind the flowers and tape the stems to the flower stem bundle with green floral tape.

Step 4

Trim the bundle of floral stems with scissors so the corsage fits on a wrist holder. Attach fresh flowers to the corsage holder with green floral wire. Attach silk flowers to the holder with hot glue. Bend the corsage brackets around the corsage to hold in place.

Step 5

Make a bow or curly ribbon sections with 1/4- or 1/2-inch ribbon. Attach the ribbon with green floral wire to hide the stems of the corsage.
