Wrist corsages are wonderful accessories at weddings. Whether it is for the bridesmaids or female ushers, or simple ones for guests, it is always a lovely alternative to the corsage worn on the dress. For some budget weddings, a wrist corsage for the bridesmaids, instead of a full bouquet, is also a good idea, as wrist corsages require less materials to create.
To make your own wrist corsage, you will need a ribbon (for tying the corsage around your wrist), a flower (or a small bunch of them), a thread and needle (or glue), scissors, and any other embellishments you would like to add. Here is one way of creating a wrist corsage:
Choose a kind of ribbon which a good texture that is friendly to the skin. There are some ribbons which are rather itchy to the skin, so it is best to stay away from those kinds. Cut the ribbon to about 30 inches long.
Cut off the stem of the flower. If you are using an artificial flower, you can simply detach the stem. Sew one end another ribbon to the base of the flower.
Sew the ribbon at various parts to create loops like this.
This is how it will look like in front on the flower.
Sew another type of ribbon, or add any other embellishments. Be sure that they are attached very well to the flower base. You can either sew or glue them.
When you are done adding the ribbons and embellishments, sew the corsage into the main ribbon that you are going to use to tie the corsage around your wrist. Sew it a various places, so that the corsage will be more steadily placed on the ribbon.
This is how the final product would look up front.
