    @Rachael1287:  your poll is messed up, i think you meant what is currently in the title to be an option.

    If you go on Etsy most brooch bouquets are well over $100 US, especially if they look full

    If I could get a decent looking brooch bouquet for 150 I’d buy instead of DIY. But that’s the impossible dream lol and so I’m DIYing it. 150 to 200 would be awesome, especially since its not a ridiculously long DIY and there are soo many cheap brooch options out there. But that’s just my opinion.

    Hi! I am so glad I found this post! While they are expensive to buy, they are mind-blowingly timely to make. And the money to buy the supplies sneaks up on your.

    I made two lovely bouquets, for me andmy maid of honor. It took us about 50 hours (together) to make and cost upwards of $200 USD for pins, tools, fabric, wire, floral tape, and so on. We budged $100 to make it an 20 hours of time. 

    Had someone told me 6 months ago that the weekend before I was getting married I’d still be working on it, I would have spend 3 times as much and just bought them.

    In my opinion; this is one of those DIY projects that I would just spend the money and purchase!

    FULL DISCLOSURE: I crochet, cook, and sometimes garden. But I am not “crafty.”

    Good luck!

    I’m currently making a brooch bouquet, as in I just set it down to take a break from making my brooch bouquet… It’s been a work in progress, as I get new brooches I wire them so I don’t have to do so many in one sitting.

    If I could have found something for around 100-150 dollars I would have bought it, but as I’ve been working on mine I realize that’s impossible. I haven’t paid more than 2 dollars for each brooch (most of them 1 dollar), and I’m probably already at the 100-150 mark. I’m having a sparkly winter wedding and I wanted a full bouquet. Obviously the less full bouquets wouldn’t cost so much… or take as long to make.

    This is my picture for inspiration…
