Pink & Green corsages turn hair accessories…

DSC_0477
My niece is having a baby girl!  I'm hosting a Brunch for her in a couple of weeks, therefore am crafting and hording pink things for the party.  Her nursery is hot pink and apple green polka dots everywhere.  I found these wonderful pink and green dotted Gerber daisies at Michael's. I also located some sparkly rhinestones and fancy feathers that are making these into special corsages.  I’ve glued on felt backing that holds an alligator clip so the corsages can be turned into hair accessories after…or during the party.  I know my niece will love them.  Here is a picture tutorial on how they were made.

Remove the flower centers and back, discard.  Glue each set of petals together at the center and attach a felt circle to the back.  While the glue dries for an hour or more, cut another felt circle and a small slit large enough to slip the front side of a hair clip through. Glue it on the back to the first felt circle.  Allow it to dry completely.  A third felt circle can serve as a base for a rhinestone center.  Flip the flower to the front and glue the rhinestones in the center.  Use floral tape to attach some fancy feathers to wire.  Attach to the back using the hair clip.  A hat pin from the floral department was used to pin the corsage on the mom and grandmothers during the party.  After the party mom can use a corsage on a baby head band that can be purchased in most craft stores.
