Man its hard to believe that my son is 17. Where did the time go. .
My sons date sent him pictures of her dress so we could match his tie and get a corsage ready. Has anyone priced out corsages ???? Holy Crap when you price out real flowers its $25-35 for one of those babies and that if you get a generic one (white flowers, and ribbon for color). Its not very pretty if you ask me - which my son did and I told him we could make one for about $10.
Here is the final product
- take a pipe cleaner in a similar color and twist into a figure 8
- cut small pieces (about 2-3 inches long) of the ribbon and twist another piece of pipe cleaner in the middle until its secure
- cut a few leaves off the sprig of fern leaves attach to the figure 8 pipe cleaner
- then attach the ribbon and then start to assemble the flowers building up and out (until you are happy with the arrangement).
