i know, i know... it's been a hot second since i've blogged.
i don't have an excuse, i'm just going to make things happen:
it's the next PINday installment!! and it's SUHweet DIY hair piece great for everyday wear OR for the big day - after seeing the sex and the city episode (or movie?!) where carrie is getting married and she has that thing on her head i'm convinced that ANYTHING can be a hairpiece for your wedding day.
my inspiration came from here (it's on my PINday board - you should probably check it out and like/repin whatever you want to see me do next!)
materials i used:
random circular objects to trace
muslin (gosh i just love this stuff)
hot glue gun
cheap hair barrette
first i scrounged around for felt and circular objects - i used my lens cap and a ribbon spool!
i then tore strips of muslin - as you can see they aren't all the same size (that's because i didn't measure - i craft like i bake... without any real sense of how much stuff i'm using - i'm a fly by the seat of your pants kind of gal), but they were around 18 inches long
i then put a small dot of hot glue on the middle of one of the felt circles and attached one of the strips of muslin
then you just work your way around, twisting the muslin as you go along and continuing to dot the felt with small amounts of hot glue
i did 3 'flowers' all together and used the 4th felt circle as backing for my barrette
i glued the flowers together in the arrangement that i thought looked the best (as you can see i used lace for one of my flowers, you can use any material you want! i also thought about using twine)
i flipped the flowers over and first glued the plastic top of the barrette to the back of the arrangement, then glued my 4th felt flower to the backs of the arrangement
voila! sorry for this crappy view - i didn't have anyone to take my picture! i could totally wear this to work/church/date night (also: it took me about 27 frames to get the focus even close to where i wanted it - legit, my arms were tired)
or you can dress it up with a french twist!!
i liked this so much i decided to make TWO of them :) and i'm GIVING AWAY the 2nd to one lucky blog comment-er!! all you have to do is leave a comment on THIS POST and i will randomly select the winner on Sunday, March 18 at 8:00 p.m. (winner will be announced monday on the blog)
