DIY Prom Corsage

Prom season is upon us and with it comes all the excitement and maybe even worries about getting ready for the special event. Let Afloral.com help by instructing you on how to create a corsage with this tutorial. We'll show you the steps to take and give you tips on what works best so you can successfully make your own design!

Materials:
Cuff Bracelet
Ribbon
Bouquet Jewelry
Artificial Flowers (That match your dress!)
Wire
Wire Cutters 
Glue Gun
Scissors

Step 1: Take your wristlet/bracelet/cuff and tie a ribbon around the top. Cut off the excess ribbon.

Tip: By tying a ribbon around the top you can avoid gluing directly to your wristlet/bracelet/cuff, this way you can reuse it for other events.

Step 2: Create a bow, and using a hot glue gun, glue your bow to the ribbon on the wristlet.

Step 3: Cut and glue on silk leaves to the exposed ribbon on the wristlet. You can pull these from your silk flower sprays or use corsage leaves. 

Tip: Hot glue does not adhere well to smooth non-porous surfaces like glass, metal, or plastic. Avoid gluing to these textures for a sturdy, long-lasting creation.

Step 4: Cut the flower head off of the stem. Then, take the flower head and glue it to the center of your bow.

Step 5: Add some sparkle to your corsage! We chose to add a faux crystal spray. Take your crystal spray and cut off a 3.5" piece. Cover the end in glue and stick it into the corsage under your flower head. Press down firmly to secure it's position.

Tip: It's best to have the longer hanging pieces along your outer arm, away from your hand.

Step 6: Glue more leaves underneath the bloom on the opposite side of the faux crystal spray to add balance.

Step 7: To give our corsage texture, we chose to add succulent blooms. Add the succulents to the side with the crystals, nestling them in between the flower bloom and the crystals to fill the empty space.

Step 8: On the opposite side of the corsage, glue on more blooms to add balance. We chose ranunculus blooms to bring more color to our corsage.

Step 9: Add in a flare of elegance with a few white feathers. We glued a small feather near the ranunculus blooms.

Step 10: Finish off your corsage with a little more bling, we chose to trim down a bouquet jewel pick and glue it near the ranunculus blooms.

Step 11: Run a hairdryer over your creation. This will dissolve any excess glue strings to create a neat, completed look.

The best feature about this corsage is the ability to reuse the sparkly cuff. So when your night is done, you have the option of separating your corsage design from the cuff simply by cutting the original ribbon. Additionally, by using Afloral.com's artificial flowers, this corsage design is a forever keepsake of your prom night!

If you create your own DIY corsage (or even a matching boutonniere or flower crown), we would love to see it! Tag us in your images on Instagram with @Afloral or our hashtag, #afloral.
