So I was doing my research for the bouquet I have to make this week for Future Sister-In-Law and came across these brooch bouquets. These would be great for a bride looking for an alternative to traditional flowers. It would also be a great way to incorporate all those amazing vintage brooches you can find out there. I even came across one done in nothing but black and white brooches. So unique.

Crafty Bees – how is it constructed? What are the broaches have to be attached to?

I love it! Anyone know where to find cheap brooches? 🙂 Etsy has great ones, but I wouldn’t want to pay $10 for each one, and end up having to buy well over a dozen.
This reminds me of poli2b’s bouquet: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-vintage-inspired-bouquet

As of recent, I’ve been a huge fan of shell bouquets and I like this too! The ever blooming flower bouquet!

Check out antique markets! We have a ton where I am from with brooches everywhere.
Brooches range from all different prices depending on age and what they are made from or is they are “signed”. The one I got for my bouquet was “signed” (stamped by the company) so it was a little more than some of the others but there were so many I had a hard time deciding. Plus what a great something old!
@texasmer: If I were to make this myself, I would get the long straight pieces of floral wire in a thick gauge and attach each brooch to one of the wires. Then I would arrange and gather all the wires to form the “handle” part of the bouquet and wrap it with pretty ribbon. I don’t know if that is how it is actually done but it works in my mind.

Thats a pretty bouquet!! I love the idea! But by the looks of it, it could be pretty pricey! I have found a couple of cheap brooches (0.99) from ebay! I made my neckalce (something blue) from a brooch I purchased on ebay too! Great idea!
Remi: You can try ebay!!

Amazing! Micheal’s or other craft stores may be a good place for similar pieces under 5 dollars.
