Oh, I redid the bouquet once more before the wedding. Too bad I can’t upload pics to show it.
What did you use at the bottom to create theruffle and howsaid you getsuch a rounded shape ?
FINAL REVISION PHOTOS
I used pink hydrangea to create the ruffle look at the bottom. I also switched the base to a 7 inch styrofoam ball and angled the hydrangea upwards at the bottom.
Here are some links to my blog where I shared my trials and tribulations that I encountered during the process of making my brooch bouquet.

Thanks so much for sharing your tips and tutorial
wow, it’s so great…how many brooches did you use?
I used about 60 brooches. I actually lost count after a while because I started using other items like expandable rings that had flowers, broken bracelet pieces and earrings.
I was just wondering where you bought the brooches as well how much did this end up costing you?
@MizzNuNu I bought my brooches online, thrift stores, antique shops and retail stores.
I was able to use more than just brooches in my bouquet like rings, pendants and earrings. I would estimate that it cost me around $225. But it is rather large. I make and sell smaller ones for around $150.
