Ok hive….this is my second major DIY project and I am so thrilled with how it is coming together. I had previously posted about my brooch purchases, and now that I have them all:
(Above is a sampling of my brooches, I have approx 3 times this!)
Now it is time to start assembling. I went to Michaels and picked up a foam ball (6″) which I cut not quite in half to use as my base. My florist is awesome and said he will help me with the final assembly (using wires, etc) so it is made in a way that he can work with the add the real flowers around it.
Anyways, I started just with a haphazard placement of all the “pins” I am using, and here is what I came up with:
I am totally loving it! I have approx 15 earrings which are smaller and will be used as “filler”. I was also thinking that the foam should be wrapped in a nice ivory fabric just incase any peeks through.
Our florist and I were discussing whether we should put ivory flowers around it or perhaps my accent color of deep purple…anyone have thoughts?
I am so excited for how my first DIY attempt is coming together. Next I’ll be finishing my flip flops!
