Real Living Orchid Brooch Favors




About: A DIY enthusiast.

This is an instructable for making a living brooch favors.

The reason I did this instructable was...

  1. to make favors as a special door gifts for the guests.
  2. as a novel way to distribute and then, friends and relatives can propagate the scions of unique orchids.
  3. as a memento of the any special day.

Step 1: Items

You can obtain this items in the embroidery section of your departmental store.(except for the orchids)

  1. Iron wire
  2. Purple wool yarn
  3. Safety pin
  4. Orchid
  5. Ribbons


  1. Wire cutter
  2. Scissor

Step 2: The Frame

  1. Firstly, I cut the iron wire about 6" in length.
  2. Then, I bend the wire in the middle.
  3. I twist both end of the wire to attach to the safety pin.

Step 3: The String

Next, I knit the frame with the purple wool yarn.

Step 4: The Orchid

Lastly, I tie the knitted frame and the orchid with the ribbons.

    Maybe you should add a care sheet to the orchid.

    I'm just starting to grow orchids. You can share tips on growing orchids with me :)
    Since the brooch were made to distribute to the guests, I just spray a little with water.
    Yes, may be it's cattleya, I really don't know... however it has a small size flower about 10mm and its either white or yellow. The orchids I used for brooch were given by my friend. Sorry again, I don't know the species name.
