DIY Corsage with Crochet Flowers – Tutorial

I couldn’t help myself – I had to make crochet flower corsages! If you have been following my yarn adventures, you know that I am getting married this fall. A couple weeks ago, boutonnieres for my groom and groomsmen using crochet flowers. I decided to follow suit and make matching corsages with crochet flowers as well.

I plan to gift the corsages to my mother and mother-in-law on my wedding day. They were very easy to make and sit nicely on the wrist. The lace ribbon gives them a romantic feel and looks just lovely with the dusty pink crochet rose. I was also able to use some of the leftover silk eucalyptus leaves from the boutonnieres for an added touch of greenery.

I used the same pattern for the pink crochet flower as in the boutonnieres tutorial. It can be found here.
Once your crochet rose is made, follow the steps below for assembling the corsage.

3/4 inch ribbon or lace trim
Tape measure or ruler
