This is lovely! well done! Im attempting one atm – youve done a great job!!
How many brooches did u use?
There are 45 brooches/rings. I’m waiting on a few more to come in the mail and I’m going to ad flowers around the bottom.
I like it! What are the dimensions? And how heavy is it?
@YoungBride1414 It is set ona 7 3/4 foam semi-circle. so it’s just over 8 1/2 inches with the brooches sticking out. It’s also a very solid, but a comfortable in my hand. I think using the foam helps distribute the weight better because when I was trying to use the hydrangea as the base it was akward to hold and felt bulky.
It’s beautiful!! ive been attempting one too and am finding the same thing with the hydrangea base. How have u used the foam?
@ Brooke2012 I used the foam as the base to keep the circlular shape and it makes it really easy to handle with the bouquet. It is quite bulky and gets heavy as you add more brooches. It also distributes the weight of the bouquet.
I did try to build only on the hydrangea, but I didn’t like the shape and it was just easier for me to use the foam. I like that it keeps the brooches in place.
Heres a link to how I added the hydrangea to the foam: http://www.weddingbycolor.com/jasminedanelle/milestones/189095
