Spread the love with these beautiful DIY Flower Corsages! Made out of simple tissue paper, these are easy to craft and make great gifts. Kids can make these and wear them to school themselves or hand them out to friends and teachers as a way to say “You are special to me.”

Materials:

  • tissue paper in an array of colors
  • green ribbon
  • scissors
  • school glue (such as Elmer's)
  • card stock paper
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • corsage or brooch pins

Instructions

    1. corsage-final-long1Cut a circle about 1.5 or 2 inches in diameter out of card stock paper.

    2. Scrunch a small piece of tissue paper into a tiny ball (about the size of a green pea) and roll it around in your fingers until it is nice and round. Glue it to the center of the tissue paper with school glue.

    3. Cut a strip of tissue paper about 8 inches wide and roll it tightly into a tube of paper.

    4. Using school glue or hot glue, begin twisting the tissue paper and gluing it around the center of the circle around the tissue paper ball you created. As you twine the paper around the center (in the shape of a snail shell) twist it, too.

    5. Continue gluing the paper all around the center until you get to the outside edge of the circle. Once finished you will have formed a little flower.

    6. Cut a piece of ribbon about 6 inches long and glue both ends (forming loops) to the back of the flower. Once the glue is dry, glue on your corsage pin!

    Whether you wear your pin or give it as a gift, make sure to share the love!
