I have the most beautiful brooches – maybe even too many. I wired them all and have them ready to go – but it is a huge pain in the rear to figure out how to assemble the bouquet!
I tried starting with a fake white hydrangea – the flowers underneath kept poking through in weird spots and then there wasn’t enough left at the bottom. Then I tried bundling maybe 5-7 brooches together, using rubber bands to hold these small bunches, and then placing the bunches together. With this method I had a HUGE top of the stem.
For ladies who have created an all-brooch bouquet, with no flowers underneath, how did you manage doing this? Any DIY blogs I find conveniently gloss over this part of the process – no doubt because it’s the hardest step. I’m SO close but so far away!
