How to Make a Stunning Wrist Corsage

In this video tutorial, you’ll be walked through the steps to create a beautiful wrist corsage using white spray roses and other essential supplies. Perfect for weddings, proms, or special events, this DIY project is both fun and rewarding.

Materials Needed:

  • Ribbon: For the bow (double-faced satin works well)
  • Floral Adhesive Tape: Light green is preferred
  • Floral Adhesive Glue: Available on Amazon or at local craft stores
  • Wire Cutters and Wire: For assembling the corsage
  • Spray Roses: Choose your preferred color
  • Filler Flowers and Greenery: Wax flowers or greenery from your garden

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Make the Bow:
    • Use double-faced satin ribbon. Start by creating a loop in the center, twisting the ribbon behind each time to form a loop on either side. Aim for 3-5 loops on each side, depending on your desired fullness.
    • Secure the bow with a wire in the center, then cut the tails on a slant for a neat finish.
  2. Prepare the Flowers:
    • Cut the spray roses, leaving a small stem on each. Trim any damaged petals by pulling them off gently.
    • Optionally, save some of the rose greenery for additional decoration.
  3. Prepare the Wristlet:
    • Use a traditional wristlet base. Bend back the attachment spokes if gluing the flowers directly onto the base.
    • Lay out a paper towel to protect your work surface and stabilize the wristlet using a small box or roll.
  4. Attach the Greenery:
    • Apply a thin layer of floral adhesive glue to the wristlet base and attach the leaves, forming a base layer. Hold each leaf in place until the glue sets.
  5. Add a Pipe Cleaner Base:
    • Roll a chenille stem (pipe cleaner) and glue it to the wristlet for additional stability. This helps the bow and flowers adhere better.
  6. Attach the Bow:
    • Apply glue to the pipe cleaner and the base of the bow. Press the bow onto the wristlet, fluffing the loops as you go.
  7. Attach the Roses:
    • Add glue to the base of each rose and insert them into the bow, spreading the loops to avoid getting glue on the ribbon. Arrange the roses as desired, trimming stems if necessary.
  8. Add Filler Flowers:
    • Insert filler flowers like wax flower or baby’s breath using the same gluing technique. This adds volume and texture to the corsage.
  9. Final Touches:
    • Allow the corsage to dry for about 15 minutes. Check for stability and make any necessary adjustments.

Once complete, you’ll have a stunning wrist corsage ready for any special occasion. Enjoy the process and get creative with your floral arrangements! Stay tuned for more floral videos.
