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. Make sure the leaves are attached too!
2. Assemble the corsage. Put the main flower in the middle and have a few filler flowers around it.
3. Wire the stems of the flower and filler flowers together with the floral wire. Start from the top and go to the bottom, and wrap in a diagonal motion.
4. Use the floral tape and wrap it around the stems, covering the wire. Wrap tightly and diagonally.
5. For the ribbon bracelet, cut a foot of ribbon, and fold in half.
6. Make a small slit in the fold of the ribbon. See picture below if you are confused!
7. Put the corsage in the ribbon, opposite direction of the ribbon. The ribbon should be wide enough to hide the stems. Note that the flowers won't be face up like normal corsages.
8. When putting the corsage on your girl, have the flowers point up towards her elbow: when she holds her wrist up, they should be upside down. When she holds her wrist out to the camera though, they'll be facing the right way!
