DIY Prom Clutch

Hey DIYers! Today's DIY is another post in my DIY Prom Series. I will be showing you what to pack in your prom clutch to have the best night ever! This DIY is perfect for you if you overpack, like I do. :) Let's get started!

These are things you probably want in your clutch:
1. A pack of mints or gum. If you get mints, get the mini version of altoids. If you get gum, get Trident: their gum packs are small and compact.
2. Go to Nordstrom and get a free sample of the perfume that you're using for the night. They are small, so they'll fit in your clutch perfectly.
3. Bring money! You never know if you'll want to ditch the night and get pizza.
4. Portable charger! If you're taking a lot of pictures during the night, a portable charger (along with the charging cord) is essential.

DIY Prom Corsage

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first post in my DIY Prom series. Today's DIY is a DIY Prom Corsage! A corsage is a small bouquet of flowers usually given by the guy to the girl to wear on her wrist. Corsages can be up to $45, which is why today's DIY is essential if you want to save money. (Prom can be extremely expensive, so it's definitely worth saving a few bucks!) Let's get started!

You will need:
- 2 inch wide satin ribbon: choose a color that coordinates with your date's dress.
- A flower: my favorite flowers to use for corsages are roses and carnations. Tip: If you buy a bouquet, your friends can use the other flowers in the bouquet for their DIY corsages!
- A "filler flower": baby's breath is a great filler flower because it completes the look of the corsage.
- Floral wire (Thin green wire made for wrapping flowers)
- Floral tape (Thin green tape made for wrapping flowers)

Steps:
1. Cut the stem off your flower, but leave 2 inches under the bud.…

What happened to your blog?!

Hey everyone! It's Madi from DIY With Madi, and I am making this post to update you about my blog! If you haven't noticed yet, I changed the layout of it! Now it is spicier and hopefully easier to find posts on. :))

Also, I am so so sorry I haven't been making DIY posts. My AP tests for school are coming up, and I am frantically preparing for them. I will get back into the post-writing and DIY-making soon though, just in time for summer!

Let me know what you think about my new blog layout in the comments below!
