How To Make a DIY Elegant Brooch and Pearl Cascading Bridal Bouquet
STEP 1: Place the bouquet holder on the half-foam ball and trace around it. Cut out the traced area and scoop out enough of the foam with a spoon to place your handle inside the foam. Next, add hot glue to the top of the handle and insert it into your foam. Now attach the bouquet collar with hot glue.
It’s Time to Measure and Cut the Pearl Strands
STEP 2: Measure and cut three ivory strand pearls at 10 inches, 20 inches, and 30 inches. Next, measure and cut three strands of white pearls at 15 inches, 25 inches, and 35 inches. Also, measure and cut two strands of iridescent pearls at 12 inches and 18 inches. Lastly, measure and cut a rhinestone strand 19 inches long.
Attach the Strands to the Foam Dome
STEP 3: Now lay out the strands from Step 2 from shortest to longest. Make a center point line on the half-foam dome with a pen. Attach the strands with floral pins around the center line, shortest to longest, one side to the other. Be sure they are even on both sides. [See Video]
Embellish the Flowers
STEP 4: Cut down the 26 gauge floral wire into 3-inch pieces. Wrap one end of each piece around your finger to create a loop. Hot glue a brooch to one of the pieces, a button to the second piece, and a pearl bead to the third. Allow the pieces to dry. Once they are dry, remove the stems and insert them into each flower. You can do as many embellished flowers as you would like. [See Video]
Attach the Flowers
STEP 5: Begin attaching your flowers at the center point line you created in Step 2. The pattern you want to do is one blush rose and two cream roses on top, and then two embellished blush roses on each side. Attach 12-16 blush roses, 16-20 ivory roses, and 8-12 real touch cream roses.
THE FINAL STEPS!
STEP 6: Make additional brooch embellishments from Step 4 and attach them to the bouquet. Place the ornate brooch in the center of the bouquet. I highly recommend watching the video above for this step.
