Making Wrist Corsages

By LaVelle Weaver 1

My parents' church is having a Church Homecoming in July. I have been asked to make or find someone to make 30 wrist corsages. I would like to make them and save the church some money. Can anyone give me some easy steps in making wrist corsages?

I have made two wrist corsages for my daughter for formal dances. The tip I would give is to buy the base to make the corsage on at a store like Micheal's or some other craft or sewing store and then go from there.

To save time and money try using the stretchy hair bungies. Adding a few artifical flowers and baby's breathe to these make a great keepsake. They come in many colors and are usually in packs of 50. Remember to get the big ones to fit everyone's wrist. (or even better, if you can find the fabric hair scrunchies on sale at your local Dollar store)

I made corsages for my son's date and the dates of several of his friends. It's real easy. I just went to www.michaels.com, typed in corsage in the search. It will give you several instruction sheets. You can follow theirs exactly or get creative and make your own originals. Good luck!

I have made my daughter some wrist corsages for homecoming/prom, and I go to the local flower shop to get the base for my wrist corsage. Its cheap and works perfectly. They are called wristlets.

I recently went to Michaels to buy a wristlet to make a wrist corsage and they no longer sell the wristlets, so save your time and travel to Michaels. I went to Walmart and bought elastic that you would put in waistbands for clothing and a package of floss bobbins to mount the flowers on (you'll only use one floss bobbin, but they come in a pack for $1.33). I simply used hot glue and silk flowers and some ribbon and the whole thing cost me under $8.00. It was for my son's girlfriend's prom.
