Flower Hairpieces Galore

Thursday, February 3, 2011 |
I was so excited about the flower I made with my last project, that... with the leftover scraps from the dress I cut up more flowers!  How many did I make, well let me show you!!


It started out with the cute flower I made for this book, and it turned into all of these!


I got these hairbands from the dollar store...


I burnt all these flowers ( I am SO in love with silk),  it's so fun to burn!


And, don't forget the zebra print that I had leftovers of from this dress.

These are the different kinds of hairpieces I ended up making:




I was trying to incorporate blue, so as not to have too many pink, so I ripped up a stained shirt of my daughters.


This one is my favourite hairband. I love the pearl!




I got plain barrettes at the dollar store too, and glued these flowers on them.


And these.... are all the extra flowers that I didn't have a clip or band for, and who knows may just be for something else entirely!


Seriously, that is what I call up-cycle!  This dress went so far!

And I cut up a dollar store pearl necklace and hair elastic to get all my beads, and look how many I have left for future projects!


Love it!


My niece is having a birthday, and guess what she is getting...?!

Have you made any of these?  So easy and fun!

Cost:
Hairbands: $3
Beads: $2

Total: $5

(11 hairbands, 4 barrettes, 22 extra flowers!)

I especially love the picture of your cutie patutie!!love love them all. Does it have to be silk for the flowers to work? I may just have to start burning stuff just for fun...

How did you do the blue one? It looks like it is different from the silk burned ones?

Wow, these look wonderful! Where do you get the kid sized elastic headbands from? I have only seen adult sized headbands.

Pati @ A Crafty Escape said...

I love these! I need to find some silk to burn- that doesn't sound right :)

Lauren @ YoungNester said...

Well, to say that my first silk flower burning experiment was a disaster is an understatement! ha! I guess practice makes perfect!
