Make a brooch bouquet by starting with a bouquet of flowers, adding brooches and wrapping the stem. This process takes under one hour. You need brooches, a strand of pearls, silk flowers, ribbon, floral wire, floral tape, scissors, wire cutters and a hot-glue gun.Continue Reading
Purchase some silk flowers of desired color and type. Remove all the leaves by using the scissors so that you have only the long stems and the flowers. Arrange the flowers in the desired shape.
Wrap the stems of the flowers right below the blossoms with floral tape. Overlap the tape as you wrap in order to create a solid single stem.
Choose brooches that match the flowers. Wrap a length of floral wire around the brooch clasps, and twist the ends together to create a long stem.
Place the brooches in the bouquet of flowers with the twisted ends facing downward.
Use floral tape to wrap the long stems of the brooch ends to the stems of the flowers.
Wrap a length of decorative fabric around the stem of the bouquet starting at the bottom. As you wrap, apply hot glue to the ribbon to fasten it securely to the stem.
Wrap a strand of pearls around the flowers and brooches.
