If you love bling as much as I do, then you’ll love today’s project. It’s simple, easy and looks absolutely stunning once finished. As a bonus, it’s also a lot of fun putting the bouquet together and will easily become one of your favorite wedding DIYs.
Not only is this a great idea for the brides wedding bouquet, a bling brooch ball bouquet like this would be perfect for your bridesmaids too. Perhaps create a smaller version with variations like a different ribbon color or the addition of a bow to the bride’s bouquet to give it a little bit extra.
There are so many different ways that you can make this project your own. Enjoy the process and don’t forget to send in your pics of your brooch bouquets by simply tagging us on Instagram using the #totallydazzled.

Paint your ball
Hollow out the space for the dowel
Wrap the ribbon around the dowel. It doesn’t have to be perfect at first, as you’ll wrap over the rough ends, do make it easier on yourself and glue the end of the dowel to the ribbon, gluing as you go along.
Glue the dowel to the painted foam ball.
This is where all the fun begins. I like to start with two or three bigger pieces and fill in the in between spaces with smaller pieces. You can use the combination or arrangement of bling of your choice to suit the style of your wedding brooch bouquet. I’ve used a selection of our silver brooches for this tutorial.
You’ll notice that I’ve used a tall vase to set the bouquet on. As the bouquet comes along, it can become quite heavy and it can be a little tricky to work with it as you’ll need both hands to firmly place the brooches on the foam ball. The vase helps to keep the brooch bouquet in place throughout the project.
This is probably one of the easiest brooch bouquets I’ve ever made and most certainly the most beautiful. No special skill or knowledge of floral arrangements is needed for this and you can be as creative as you like with your brooch bouquet.
