I spent a good deal of Memorial Day using vintage plastic flowers and vintage millinery flowers as the main feature of these corsages or flowers pins, if you prefer. I took the plastic flowers apart and with floral wire restrung the pieces combining them with the vintage millinery flowers, vintage buttons, glass beads, charms, and bits and pieces of vintage costume jewelry which needed a new purpose!
I made a half-dozen of these little beauties. I made three flowers stems for each corsage and wrapped the stems together to make a very lush display.
I stuck with a pink and red color scheme using other colors as accents.
A rhinestone earring piece adorned this pale pink corsage for a surprise bit of sparkle!
I drew the stems through a small slit in two pieces of interfaced fabric--some vintage some new--which a trimmed with scalloped-edged pinking shears.
Then I glued a fabric disc over the wire ends after I sewed a pin back to the fabric.
I usually sell my creations on eBay, but I'm going to be opening an etsy shop very soon! These corsages will adorn my one-of-a-kind vintage barkcloth totes. I'll put those exclusively in my etsy shop. This is quite exciting! I've never "etsied" before and look forward to it!
Have a great May day!
