Fresh Flower Wrist Corsage

Fresh Flower Wrist Corsage
Pink Yellow and Orange Zinnias

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:

Materials:
Cut and Washed Fresh Flowers with a thick stem near the base of the flower- Zinnias work great!
Elastic Thread
Needle- large enough to thread the elastic
Scissors

How to Make a fresh flower wrist corsage

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.

  5. I think I've been to your blog already this week on another project... I absolutely LOVE this DIY!! I found you through craftgawker. I shared a link to this at my blog - I hope that's ok. I included a pic but it all links back and credits you. The direct link is http://www.bitsquareblog.com/2013/09/favourite-diy-discoveries-of-week.html if you wanted to see it. Please do let me know if this isn't . I'm trying to work out how to manually add a pin it button too so that it pins directly to your site instead of from mine
