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.
Flowers (and other things like berries, feathers, garlands, findings...etc)
Collect your supplies, which consist of costume brooches, flowers, feathers, berries...anything you want to dress it up.
Choose pieces to accent your brooch. Trim the pieces to about 4 inches.
Glue the flowers, feathers and findings to the back of your brooch, using glue dots.
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.
