How to Make a Mother’s Day Corsage with Ribbon Roses

It all started with one ribbon rose. I happened upon a wonderful YouTube video a couple of weeks ago which showed how to make rolled ribbon roses. I decided to give it a try and quickly turned into a ribbon roses making junkie. First I made my daughter, Angela, a Mother’s Day Corsage with a few ribbon roses. It turned out so well that I decided to make them for my other two other daughters Rachael and Catherine. Then I decided I should probably make one for my Daughter-In-Law, Chrishelle, and also for her mother Debbie. My grandson liked them so much that he asked me to make one for his girlfriend.

Mother's Day Corsages Made from Ribbon Roses

So, here we are two weeks later and I have made all of these Mother’s Day corsages. Once I learned how to make a basic rose, it was simple to construct the corsages using ribbon and in some cases a felt base. Some of the flowers, I embellished with beads. I made a couple that you pin on, and the others are wrist corsages that get tied on with ribbon. I think they all turned our really pretty.

Ribbon Rose Wrist Corsage

This was the first wrist corsage that I made. My daughter, Angela, fell in love with this polka dot ribbon.

This pink corsage is for my Daughter Rachel. It’s a bit smaller than the others, because she is so petite.

Red Ribbon Roses Corsage for Mother's Day

I made my Daughter-in-Law this corsage with classic red roses. It’s one that gets pinned on.

Chrishelle’s mother Debbie should enjoy wearing these yellow roses to church on Sunday.

Mother's Day Wrist Corsage Made with Denim Ribbon Roses

My daughter, Catherine, is a bit of a tom boy – so I made her roses from a pair of old denim jeans. This turned out to be one of my favorites.

Victorian Wrist Cuff with Ribbon Roses

I tried something a little different with this Victorian wrist cuff. I am in love with the ribbon I used for these flowers – it’s like crepe paper. Unfortunately, the craft store only had one spool of it. Making more of these wrist cuffs will probably be my next project.

I made this short video to show just how simple it is to make these roses, although the video linked at the top of this post gives a much better how-to demonstration. So what do you think? Do you know anyone who would enjoy one of these ribbon rose corsages for Mother’s Day?

I made rose buds out of maple leaves before. They last along time even after they dry up. I found that online . thanks for this one.

    I used to make something very similar to this with my daughter when she was little, and she wanted to play dress up. I would put them in her hair, and she said she was a “princess rosebush”!

    I have said it before and I will say it again, You are a wonderful crafter! So talented. I have seen these before but never thought I could make them for myself. I can think of so many applications for these roses. I love the music in your video! Wish me luck!

    These are just beautiful :) What kind of ribbon did you use for the Victorian wrist cuff (and how did you add it to the cuff itself?)
