Since I want my wedding to be a cross between retro and BoHo, I fell in love with this idea of taking costume brooches and turning them into beautiful wedding day corsages. The tutorial here uses colors and textures that are a bit quirky and bright, but you can use just about anything you'd like. It doesn't have to be fuchsia feathers. I do love the blue, however, because that is the same Tiffany Blue color that I am using for my wedding.

Supplies Needed:

Glue dots
Costume brooches
Flowers (and other things like berries, feathers, garlands, findings...etc)
Washi tape

Step 1:

Collect your supplies, which consist of costume brooches, flowers, feathers, berries...anything you want to dress it up.

Step 2:

Choose pieces to accent your brooch. Trim the pieces to about 4 inches.

Step 3:

Glue the flowers, feathers and findings to the back of your brooch, using glue dots.

Step 4:

Cover the back of your feathers with some washi tape. They are already firmly attached with the glue dots, but this just makes the back look a little bit more polished.
