Step by Step Guide
Step 1: Choose Your Flowers
The first step in making a corsage is choosing your flowers. Keep in mind the color and style of the dress or outfit you’ll be wearing. Roses, carnations, and orchids are popular choices.
Step 2: Prepare the Flowers and Foliage
Remove any thorns and excess foliage from the stems. Cut the stems of the flowers and foliage to desired length (usually around 3-4 inches). Make sure the stems are straight and even.
Step 3: Create the Base
Bend a piece of floral wire in half and wrap it with floral tape. This will create a base for your corsage.
Step 4: Arrange the Flowers and Foliage
Start with a focal flower (usually the largest) and add foliage and smaller flowers around it. Use floral wire or tape to secure the stems to the base, making sure to cover the wire and tape with foliage and flowers.
Step 5: Finish with Ribbon
Wrap ribbon around the base and tie it in a bow. Trim the ends of the ribbon to desired length.
