Mine has hydrangea too. I never even noticed until after the wedding. (I didn’t make my own).

I had nothing but problems with the hydrangea. We cut Styrofoam ball in half (we have to take it on a plane so I didn’t want it huge and heavy), spray painted it silver, and hollowed out the inside. I then poked all the brooches through. There are so many that I didn’t need a dowel and just used all the wires for the ‘handle’. The underside is unfinished but no one will see it.

For some reason it won’t let me edit. My bouquet isn’t finished. Still need to fill in the gaps with rhinestone push pins.

tanya4285:  have you figured out the collar yet? 

An easy option would be to get a very thick wired ribbon. Cut a piece long enough to go around the bouquet 1.5-2 times. Then on one side of the ribbon scrunch the ribbon up using the wire that’s in there (get the wire peaking out on both sides and start scrunching it to the center) then when it’s scrunched enough twist the ends of wire together to make the collar ring shape and cut off excess wire!  The wired ribbon also helps so the part of the collar sticking out the top will lay exactly as you want it because you can bend it how you want. Hope this helps!
