DIY Boho Corsage

We are steering away from the Christmas decor for this blog, and focussing on wedding work. Winter, a time for a reflection and planning in this industry. Despite the workshops and winter weddings for your clients, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past years achievements and plan for the new season ahead.

Discover this week’s guide on How to Create this beautiful boho corsage using roses, amaranthus and poppy heads. Follow our easy to follow step by step now, along with the shopping list:

Step 1

Condition the flowers overnight before you start working with them. For more information on conditioning, follow our guide on the website here.

Step 2

Begin by cutting the stems shorter approximately 10 to 20cm for each stem (top tip: Do not cut them too short – once you’ve cut it, there is no going back!) 

Step 3

Start by arranging the flowers together, working from the back to the front as shown in the photograph below. Once you are happy with the design you have created, you can cut the stems to size so they are all the same length.

Step 4

Secure the stems together using parafilm tape, working your way down the stems and create a return end to seal the bottom of the corsage.

Step 5

Use ribbon or natural twine to hide the mechanics of the corsage. Attach a corsage pin to the top and bottom of the stems.
