Cut felt and fabric into the shape of a leaf. Use a template, or make your own by tracing a real or artificial leaf on paper and cutting it out.
Glue one or two felt leaves on top of one another, arranging them in varying directions so that they fan out. Reinforce with two or three stitches.
Cut flower shapes from felt and glue in the centre on the place where the bottoms of the leaves are glued and stitched. If you have long strips of felt, fold them accordion-style and stitch in place to make a more three-dimensional flower.
Add ribbon, pom-poms and artificial accessories if desired. Sew a bead in the centre of the flower.
Glue or sew the back of the corsage to a hair clip or bar pin.
