Okay, I can’t wait to follow this – please continue to post your progess – because I was going to do this as well, then in the craziness of everything just gave up on the idea altogether, and I regret that! So excited to see someone do it!

Yay! How exciting. All your finds are gorgeous.  Just decided earlier today that I’m making my own bouquet as well.

Can’t wait to see how yours turns out.

Good luck!

I am also collecting brooches for my bouquet. One of my bridesmaids got wind of my idea and now she wants to make smaller ones for the girls, too. So I have everyone on the lookout for more brooches. I already had 6 of them from my own collection and found 15 more last Sunday at the flea market. I didn’t pay more than $2 for most of them. A couple were $5 and a couple were $3. But I just walked up to the guys and said all I had was $2 per brooch and most went with it. I am so excited about this idea.

 

Please post your progress so I can see how you are making it. I can’t decide if I should use a styrofoam ball or attach wires to them all to create actual “stems”??? Help!!!

THANKS!

I’m making one too!  But, I am still in the “collecting” stages.  Also, I’ve decided to just do red brooches – varying shades of red – but just red.  So, the process is a little slower.  I only have about 26 so far.  I’m aiming for 75. 

Can’t wait to see everyone else’s updates!!!

The brooches you gals have collected are beautiful.  Mine don’t really “match,” but most were passed down from FH’s family and my family.  This is an odd angle, but you get the picture.

Here’s what mine currently looks like. I think I’m gonna get rid of the big red one, though. Or I may paint over it. Most of these were found at the flea market super cheap. Still need to find more to fill in the gaps. But, I am getting quite excited about it!

EDIT — Well it’s not letting me upload my pics now, so I’m gonna go take a NAP! 🙂
