How To Make Wedding Brooch Corsages

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.

The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
