DIY Fabric Flower Corsages and Poufs

May 31, 2012

When I was running my accessory business, I made all types of flower blooms, poufs, and corsages. There are so many ways to make them, and so many types you can make. I always adapt Martha’s DIY for these. (She even has a template you can download.) Add these to a one-sleeve dress, put a couple underneath your top bun, or even attach to an elastic band and wear around your wrist!
Instructions and photos after the jump!


Sheer fabric
Pin back, comb, or bobby pins
Fold over your fabric the length you want your petals. 
Follow by folding doubled fabric in quarter lengths. 
Cut through your fabric to make the shape of petals you prefer (pointy tips for the dhalia look, round for  an azalea look). Cut side by side without cutting all the way through the top.
Thread and knot your needle.
Keep the strand of petals folded over and begin to roll on one end. Weave the needle through to secure. 
Continue to wrap the petal strand around the center, securing with your stitching. 
Once you have stitched together your flower, secure your pin or comb to the back of the flower by stitching around the top. 
Total time: approx. 15 min.
Total cost: Cost of fabric!

You will be surprised how simple they are to make. 
These could be used on a bridal party, or if you are attending a wedding.
Hope this comes in handy for you! Enjoy!
