How to Make Wristlet Corsages


Wristlet corsages add a touch of femininity to any outfit, whether it be formal or semi-formal. Making your own wristlet corsage out of fresh flowers and a few other easy-to-obtain items can give you a chance to express your creativity and an accent to coordinate with your favorite outfit. The process can be as simple or as intricate as you choose.

Step 1

Snip the stems of the rosebud and carnation, leaving about 1/2 inch of stem protruding from each flower.

Step 2

Wrap the green bread tie around the stems of the two flowers, binding them together.

Step 3

Squeeze a small dot of hot glue on the elastic wristband and press the bound flowers against it for approximately 20 seconds.

Step 4

Insert the stem of the baby's breath through a gap in the tie or between the two flowers.

Step 5

Wrap the silk ribbon around the middle of the bound flower buds, and tie it into a loopy bow.
