DIY Brooch Bouquet

Posted March 16, 2011 | 12 Comments

Imagine walking down the aisle holding a brooch bouquet made by hand using your favorite heirloom vintage brooches. It takes a bit of patience and some clever crafting, but it’s possible – and your bouquet will last forever…

We featured some of our favorite brooch bouquets in the past and I have always wondered how to make my own. Since I already planned my wedding I plan to make a bouquet for my home. :) We spotted this clever tutorial via Fancy Pants Weddings which shows you how to make your own brooch bouquet by hand. Take a peek at these images:

If you don’t like the fabric wrapping, you can also use fresh flowers. This bouquet is so stunning:

Ready to get crafting? Head on over here for the full scoop – this is the best brooch bouquet tutorial we’ve found yet and also explains how to select the heirloom pieces for optimal sentiment, inspiration, and value. (My favorite point: do not use anything too valuable in the bouquet, as it’s not worth losing on your wedding day.) If you do make your own brooch bouquet, tell us about it and we’d love to share your photos with our readers. Happy crafting!

    I’ve got my brooches all wired, along with a couple of “pearls” and some stephanotis flowers. But, I don’t know how to make the arrangement look like a bouquet now. Can you help me? Lol :)

    I just asked all my bridal shower guests to bring a brooch to put into my bouquet. I am so thankful that a friend recommended this for my wedding up in the mountians. We’re spending almost a week in the middle of nowhere and fresh flowers just won’t do!

    The brooches are all beautiful in their different shapes and colors! They’re used perfectly to create such a pretty bouquet.
