All the flowers in bloom right now leave me wishing I had a Luau to go to, or at least a wedding. That way I could wear one of these pretty Zinnia Wrist Corsages!
Here's a tutorial for you to make your own:
Cut and Washed Fresh Flowers with a thick stem near the base of the flower- Zinnias work great!
Needle- large enough to thread the elastic
Step 1: Cut a piece of elastic string 8-10 inches long and thread it through your needle.
Step 2: Stick your threaded needle through the stem base of the flower. Make sure to get it through a nice thick part of the stem base to hold the flower in place firmly.
Step 3: Pull the needle through the flower and most of the string, leaving a tail end on the string measuring one or two inches. Repeat previous steps until you have enough flowers strung to cover the circumference of your wrist.
Step 4: Tie the loose ends of the string together and trim the excess string.
Step 5: Carefully slip the corsage on your wrist making sure all the flowers face outwards. Admire how pretty it is!
Tip: If you need to store your corsage before wearing, place it in a tupperware, lightly spray with water, and store it in the fridge to keep it fresh.
