My brooch bouquet. 90% finished. I need to fill wrap the handle & add a few minor touches.
I purchased the brooches (around 25 all under 10 bucks) from ebay seller (fatchai1129) he is very resonable (price) and the shipping is fairly quick + free. If you deal with ebay send him an email, tell him alwayslookinshop sent you. The flowers (11.5″ Silk Hydrangea) are from http://www.afloral.com/ for under $20.00. I ordered two bunch to make it full. I used 26 gauge floral wire to stem the brouches & wrap the handle. I went to my local garment district t and purchased 1 yard of Ivory satin that I willl use for the handle and add some flair under the flower area. I will be sure to update my photos as soon as I complete this project. I do a little at a time when I feel the urge. My wedding isn’t until next year so I have plenty of time for now. Good luck ladies if your planning to do something like this.
Thats pretty inventive…I actually need a brooch for my bouquet as well. Im going to check that ebay seller out! Thanks and good luck!
