DIY Silk Flower Corsages

What You’ll Need:
• A variety of silk flowers (choose a few main flowers and a few accent flowers. It’s best to go with varieties that are relatively flat and look realistic)
Hot glue gun
Wire cutters
• 1.5” wide satin ribbon

Step 1: Cut the large blooms off of the stems using your wire cutters. Be sure to make the bottom of the flower as flat as you can.

  1. These DIY flowers look so realistic, they are so pretty as well.

  2. I LOVE these! It would also be beautiful as a belt for the bride!

  3. i made these and the look beautiful! The only problem is that 18″ of ribbon isn’t actually long enough to tie into a pretty bow, just an ugly knot. Do you have any suggestions?
