It is soooo much cheaper making corsages than buying them ~ not to mention a lot of fun!
I went to the flower section of a grocery store and they had corsages already made. They were very simple, had one rose, and were not very attractive corsages. Price: $11 I know that corsages are a lot more than that at the florist.
I can make 12 corsages out of:
1 dozen roses
1 bouquet of carnations
1 bouquet of baby's breath
1 ($4) spool of wired edge ribbon
1 spool of florist tape
1 package of 22-24 gage wire
Total cost of supplies: $25
Cost per corsage: $2.00
I have been making corsages for Mother's Day for years now. Out of one dozen roses, I can get anywhere from 6 to 12 corsages.
