Has anyone made a brooch bouquet? I want to attempt mine but don’t know what to use as a base. Someone mentioned styrofoam, but I’m nervous that I’ll buy the ball and cut it wrong and it will look dumb.
Any tips or suggestions?

My mom and I made mine and we used a floral bouquet holder. They’re plastic and you can usually buy them at JoAnn’s or Michael’s. We used floral wire on the brooches, took one end wrapped it around the clip then used floral tape to make it a bit more sturdy then fed the wire through the bouquet holder. This is what it ended up looking like:
I don’t have any shots of the base of it on my computer right now but I have it on display at home and can take some later to show you.
