All five completed bouquets. I bought all my brooches on ebay with a limit of $3 per brooch including shipping. I bought my flowers from http://www.silkflowersfactory.com. I was very nervous ordering flowers online but when they came in I was not disappointed as they were beautiful!
I made the bouquets by adding stems to the brooches with wire and floral tape. I then used the floral tape (which I hope to never use again) to tape the brooches and flowers together doing a few at a time. I wanted the brooches to be spaced out and not look like they were on top of each other. All that is left is the add some ribbon the the handle. I’m not sure how I’m doing it yet so I haven’t tried.
This is a close up of my bouquet
Another close up of my bouquet. You can see the handle in this picture.
This was my first project and I hope this gives everyone some inspiration. I love them and can’t wait to start my next project.
