Take an old brooch and turn it into a modern necklace.
We’ve all seen the big, brightly-colored enameled brooches at thrift stores and yard sales. They’ve also been fairly popular for wedding bouquets. However, if you’ve only got one or find one that makes a big statement on its own, this project is perfect.

    Step 3

    Punch a hole in the top center of one of the flower’s petals. (My pin was thicker than I thought so I had to work this by pressing and wiggling the punch several times before I was able to get through the metal. Be patient and don’t try to force it. You could end up hurting the flower and/or your metal punch if you try to rush and force this.)
