How To Make A Wrist Corsage?

How To Make A Wrist Corsage?

In this post, I will show you a step-by-step instruction on how to make a wrist corsage. You will be surprise that it is not as hard as you can imagine. I will use a rose flower as the main theme of this wrist corsage.

Even though we can actually use fresh flowers for our wrist corsage, however, I prefer to use artificial flowers in this tutorial because it is easier to manipulate. Especially for beginners, I really suggest you to start with artificial flowers first before proceeding to original flowers. Believe me, that is how every wrist corsage experts did when they practicing their wrist corsage skills.

Before that, in this how to do guide, these are all the things that you need to make a wrist corsage:

• 2 pink roses
• some fillers
• some leaves
• floral tape
• decorative wire

1. First of all, we need to prepare the flower that we are going to use. Make sure you cut all the flowers into a suitable length.

2. As we go on, we need our flower to have some sort of flexibility so that we can shape them according to our need. Thus, we need to tape each flower with floral wire. Oh yah! Don't forget to cut the leaves separately too.

3. After the flower is ready, tape the main flowers of the wrist corsage together. As in the picture below, you can see that I stick the pink roses together. For this step, I use a special floral tape to gain the optimum result.

4. Next, tape the fillers together with the main flowers of the wrist corsage.

5. After the fillers and the main flowers is ready, tape the leaves at each side of the corsage.

6. Last but not least, attach the decorative wire to the wrist corsage. The function of the decorative wire is to make is possible for the wrist corsage to be attached to our wrist. You can also use several different bands for your wrist corsage. Please refer to my post on, “Choose the Right Holder”.

Here you go. Now you can make your own wrist corsage on your special day! I hope you enjoy my tutorial on how to make a wrist corsage.
