Make your next date night or social occasion extra special by creating a handmade ring corsage. The ring corsage I made with a handmade rosette ribbon and lace flower, the colors of which you can choose based on the outfit you are planning to wear. As you gain practice making the rosette flowers and turning them into rings, you will find yourself wanting to make several different types of ring corsages to wear for other occasions.
Things You'll Need
- Hot Glue Gun
- Ring Blank
Cut a 12-inch length of ribbon and fold it in half lengthwise. Roll up the first 2 inches of one end into a tight roll and glue it together with your hot glue gun. The type of ribbon you choose to use for the ring corsage will depend on the finished result you want to achieve, such as a solid color, patterned, thick or thin ribbon.
Begin twisting the ribbon as you wrap it around the rolled-up middle portion, gluing it together approximately every couple of inches. You will continue to twist the ribbon as it is wrapped around the flower in a rosette shape. Continue until you are satisfied with the size of the rosette, and then cut the excess ribbon while leaving an inch-long tail to be glued underneath the flower.
Flip the rosette upside down and place it on the lace. Cut around the flower so that the lace is about 1/2-inch larger in diameter than the rosette. Glue the lace circle to the bottom of the rosette flower.
Place a dab of hot glue on the top of the ring blank and press the bottom of the rosette flower to it firmly, holding it for a few seconds or until the glue begins to dry.
