In honor of celebrating life—mother’s day, prom, weddings, May Fourth, Cinco-De- Mayo, spring, your grandmother, your great-grandmother, your great-great aunt and your greatest special occasion coming up—we have created a beyond fun little corsage. Only it isn’t just any corsage; it is a teensy little mini bouquet in the form of a corsage. Because really, isn’t everything 100 times cuter in teensy little mini form?
And you can make this cutest corsage yourself, with any flowers from your garden or a nearby neighbor’s garden, by following the instructions below. Treat your mom, your date, or you know what? Treat yourself.
- small flowers
- wax paper
- brown paper bag
- paint brush
- white gouache paint
- hot glue gun
- brooch pin hardware
- Cut several small flowers with 3-4 in stems. Gather blooms in a bundle and tie with string.
- Cut or tear a 3 in x 6 in piece of brown paper from your paper bag. I think it’s fun when the paper is a bit crinkled and irregular. Use white gouache paint to paint a pattern on one side of the brown paper.
