Fun wrist corsage project by Dan and friends

This is the corsage Dan made for Brooke. Her dress is cream with black accents.
The boys got together after mutual the other night, with moms and made these flowers and then put them together into wrist corsages for their dates to Homecoming. They are made from chiffon, organza, taffeta, and other various fabrics. They did them using the method we learned from Gretchens blog.
And the links she has on her blog which are here and here.

The boys did almost everything, from choosing fabric, to singing (burning) edges of the fabric for petals with a candle, to creating the bracelets, and then assembling the corsages. The moms really were just there as needle-and-thread directors. It was fun! and it will be easy for the girls to dis-assemble them to wear as hair flowers and as bracelets.

This is Kevin's.

This is (part of) McLain's.
