I finished my brooch bouquet this week! I used about 25 brooches (most of them from FabulousBrooch.com), and three hydrangea flowers purchased at a crafts store. I also added some pearls (also purchased at a craft store) that are used for jewelry to fill in some of the gaps. I just threaded some floral wire through it then twisted the ends to create stems.
I wrapped the stems in white satin then criss-crossed a sheer white ribbon (starting from the bottom up). I added pearl pins as accents which matches my entire wedding style and decor (as you may be able to tell from the brooches themselves).
I’m super happy with it. What do you think?
I may have to do the bottom over because the stems are a bit too long. And since I have another month and a half to sit and stare at it, it’ll probably get to me. If I do, I’ll post a detailed tutorial or video tutorial to help others achieve this look.

Thank you! It’s definitely much easirer than I thought it would be. It probably took me around two days to complete, outside of finding the brooches.
