First, I need to shout out to ido07222011 for her amazing job with her brooch bouquet! She really inspired me to make up in my mind I CAN ACTUALLY DO THIS! LOL.
Instead of going with the the bouquet foam stick like a lot of ladies do, I love her idea of using a foam ball because hers came out perfectly round and looks exactly how I envisioned mine to be shaped.
In the attached picture, I came across a nice brooch bouquet for sale on the Blue Petyl website that I really liked because it combined buttons, silk purple flowers here and there, along with brooches. It made me think- hey wait a minute, that's what I want! LOL.
I've been all over the web trying to find unique brooches, and have really been captivated by some brooch bouquets that incorporate silk flowers or buttons with a vintage flair. With my theme of modern vintage, and being eclectic in personality anyway- I was thinking why not do all 3?! I mean, who says it has to be only brooches, or only buttons, right?
The only thing is trying to envision exactly what I want and not just frivolously buying things that won't all gel together..
Tell me what you think, and if you're currently making your own DIY brooch bouquet Please oh Please give me pointers. I plan to start mine in the next 2 weeks and need all the help I can get.
