After I made our DIY Feather Boutonnieres
, I wanted to make something coordinating for our grandmothers to wear. I have these vintage enamel (and plastic) floral brooches sitting around everywhere in my home and shop and really wanted to use them for something creative. What I came up with is a dressed up version of a floral brooch. I loved our corsages! They were quick to make and unique! Best of all, our grandmothers can keep them forever…
DIY Vintage Brooch Corsage
Step 1: Collect flowers, berry garland and millenary leaves in your colors. I ordered most of mine from Etsy (search "supplies").
Step 2: Choose pieces to accent your brooch. Trim the pieces to about 4 inches.
Step 3: Glue the feathers and findings to the back of your brooch. I used glue dots.
Step 4: Cover the back of your feathers with some twill tape or deco tape. They are already firmly attached with the glue dots, but this just makes the back look a little bit more polished.
Happy Creating! Elsie
