Brooch Wedding Bouquet

Enameled pins were all the rage in the 60's. Flower Power. They're making a comeback, even showing up in wedding bouquets as shown below from the Wedding Chicks blog. Like all retro things, the pins are quite a bit more expensive than they were in the 60's. This cute little bouquet can make a sizable dent in your budget.

There must be a way to simulate this look. CSMT to the rescue!
Download the pattern for the daisy and dogwood blossoms here. Print and cut them out.

tins such as cookie tins, olive oil cans and sand buckets
metallic shank buttons (most of these were plastic)
18 gauge wire
permanent marker
spray primer
various colored spray paints
floral tape
Goop glue
satin ribbon

tin cutters or strong scissors
hammer and nail

Cut apart the tin and then trace on the patterns with the permanent marker. Cut out the flowers with tin cutters or scissors. If you avoid making points or burrs, the edges will not be sharp or cut you. Files can be used to remove pointy bits if necessary.

Make two small holes in the middle of the blossom by hammering with a nail from the back side. Any rough edges made by the nail will be hidden later on. Fold the daisy petals horizontally and cup the dogwood blossoms. This is very easily done with your hands.

Cut a length of wire about a foot long. Make a loop at the top and thread the two ends through the holes. Pull the loop through gently with the pliers if necessary. Twist the short end over the long wire and squeeze the loop together right at the blossom.

Spray the front and the back with primer. Set in a jar (this one was filled with beans) and allow to dry.

Spray each flower (front and back) with an appropriate color and let dry. Snip off the button shank, put a dollop of glue on the back of the button., then apply to the front of the flower.

Wind the wire with floral tape.

Grasp the stems together and wind with satin ribbon.

I was able to make 12 flowers from a rather small tin pail purchased at the dollar store.

These can be displayed on the bridesmaid luncheon table and used as bridesmaids' bouquets later on. In fact, if you make enough for the whole wedding you would have enough money left over for the vintage enameled pin bridal bouquet.

These are lovely. What a cute idea.

We’ve been busting up our stash like crazy and are really enjoying it too. Here's our latest.

I think we could make some of these in the colors of the wedding and mix them with purchased brooches in a bouquet. Thanks for the idea.

mice to thrive. These pests often infiltrate homes and set up camp in wall cavities and roofs. They can wreak havoc on your property as they chew through structures and furniture in hopes of locating food and sites for nesting. Their droppings can also cause myriad health problems. If you live close to restaurants or any other businesses related to food, you should be particularly wary of rat infestations. Flicks Adelaide's pest control team inspects homes for rats and mice. We also supply commercial rodent control solutions suited to restaurants and similar businesses..شركة تنظيف بمكة ,شركة تنظيف بخميس مشيط , شركة تنظيف فلل بجدة

The relative warmth of Adelaide's climates makes it an attractive environment for rats and Possums in South Australia are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, so harming them can result in you being made to pay heavy fines. A licensed pest manager from Flick can make a house call, set a trap on the roof of your home and catch the possum. Spiders Arachnids such as the venomous Redback spider not only look scary, they are also dangerous to humans. Spider control treatment is often necessary to keep them at bay and off your property. A qualified Flick technician can treat the danger zones in your home including cracks and crevices, lighting, doorways, external window areas, under seating and around down pipes. Such treatment can prevent spiders from proliferating and overrunning your home.
