I've got a completely new kind of project to share with you today and I'm very excited about it as it's super easy and so much fun to create. This DIY brooch ball that we are going to make will not only look great but makes for a lovely flower girl’s dream bouquet.
Start painting your styrofoam ball using your paint brush and the paint of your choice. I used a foam brush in this tutorial and dabbed on a silver paint I bought from my local craft store.
Attach the screw eye hook to the center of the styrofoam ball by pushing it through and making a little hole on it. Using a very strong glue gun, add a little glue on the hole and insert the screw eye hook back again. Spread some glue around of the hook also. And make sure the screw sticks to the ball well.
Now that the ball is painted and the hook is attached, we will now proceed to the fun part of the tutorial – sticking on these lovely rhinestone brooches and buttonsof your choice! Carefully attach the brooches and buttons making sure they cling to the styrofoam well so to avoid fallen rhinestones. You may want to use generous amount of glue from your glue gun to ensure best results for this.
Make a ribbon holder by tying the ribbon in the screw eye. I used a black 1 ½ satin ribbon in this tutorial. Leave a little handle however long you want it to be for your flower girl to hold on. Then finally tie a knot or you may add a beautiful bow just what I did in the video tutorial.
And that’s it! Four super easy steps to complement your wedding theme that can all be done in a flash for those planning DIY weddings or events on the fly but still want that sophisticated look.
As always, your choice in the type of brooches and other rhinestones you use, the color, and the bling pieces you add to it can totally change the look and feel of your brooch bouquet ball so don’t be scared to play around with the different combinations.
