This was a first for me! In May I was given a wonderful opportunity by a mom at Marcus High School to make wrist corsages for their softball banquet. (THANK YOU CRISTA!) At first I was unsure about being able to make them but then they turned out pretty awesome and I enjoyed every minute of it!
So the first objective was to find a way to differentiate between Junior Varsity, Varsity and the Seniors on the Varsity team.
Here you will see the slight variations. I found these really pretty open faced roses and used red flowers for JV and white flowers for Varsity and Seniors. Also for JV we used red and black ribbon, Varsity we used red, black and white ribbon, and Senior Varsity was red and white only.
Behind the flower I used a tuft of tulle and added a feather and these little jewels things. I felt the flower needed more color themselves so I used that to help differentiate. I put white rosettes in the JV red flowers, black rosettes in the Varsity White Flowers and red rosettes in the Senior Varsity white flowers.
So my mom and I found these wooden discs that were perfect size. Enlisting the help of my husband who patiently painted each one with a white base and then with the neon yellow, they finally started to come together.
The stitching was more difficult but I had to do it by hand with red acrylic paint.
To give them a nice finish I used crystal accents on the top which made them nice and shiny. I was really happy with the way they turned out!!
This is what they look like on and below is a side view so you could see the band - I used stretchy sequins to finish them up!!
Hope you enjoyed! Thank you for looking!
