DIY Corsage

It's Prom season.
Mother's Day is also coming up!
So it's the time for corsages.

I love fresh flower corsages,
but they don't last long.
So I made a super cute bracelet corsage from faux flowers!

DIY Corsage - How to make a corsage for Prom or Mother's Day

As I said in my post here-
Hobby Lobby has an awesome selection of 
corsages and boutonnieres.

But I wanted something a little more non- traditional.

So I headed to the hair clip section.

I found this cream colored flower hair clip 
with pearls and rhinestones
on ribbon already made for SUCH a great price!

This is such a cost effective way to 
make a corsage!

It came attached to a felt circle with an alligator hair clip.

It looked really pretty on it's own,
but I wanted to dress it up a bit!

The inside of the flower had pearls and rhinestones,
which I pulled off.

I hot glued 3 red mini roses into the center
and then glued the pearls and rhinestones to the 
center of the red roses.

I found some mini spools of red glitter ribbon 
in the scrapbook/paper craft section of Hobby Lobby. 

I tucked some red glitter ribbon 
in the corsage with the pre-attached cream ribbon.

I found a red beaded elastic bracelet in the jewelry section.

Although the tassel is super cute, it wasn't great with
the corsage so I clipped it off with wire cutters.

Then I simply clipped the corsage onto the bracelet
using the hair clip on the back.

DIY Corsage and boutonniere for Prom

I added a small bit of red glitter ribbon to 
the boutonniere so it would match.

My handsome son and his cute girlfriend
looked so fantastic at Prom!

BTW- we purchased my son's vest, bowtie and pocket square here.

DIY Corsage for Prom or Mother's Day

It's such a sweet little corsage!
It would make such a great Mother's Day gift as well!


  1. What a darling idea! I love how it turned out. Corsages are nice but I'm always worried about even moving around - they get messed up so easily. I love that you can actually wear this and enjoy it without that extra stress. ;)

  2. Great idea! I made so many corsages last year it was crazy. I didn't even realize that
    Hobby Lobby had some already put together. I love the bracelet too.
