Make Something Monday

Hope you had a great weekend! As you might remember, I'm doing a themed post for each day this week based off this cute thing!

So, today, being my craft day, we're going to make some hairpieces! They're really simple, and look quite pretty; in fact, I've had to make and wear lots of these for different shows, and they always gather compliments. Ready? Let's do it.
Gather all of your supplies and work out a design idea. I was in a floral mood, so I picked up a few flowers, although, you can really use anything you want. 

You'll Need:
-glue gun
-metal hair barrettes (large is best)
-silk flowers
-loose rhinestones
-ribbon or fabric
-any other decorative embellishments (feathers, buttons..etc.)

I wanted my flower on the end, and luckily, these flowers came with a wire attached, so I wrapped it around the barrette to secure it. 
Even though it's got a wire wrap, I always reinforce it with hot glue. This way you'll know it's going stay on, especially if you're dancing around :)

Here's where you get to express some creativity, and decorate it till your heart's content! 
I found these pretty embellishments in the scrapbooking section of Michael's, and they turned out to be really cute on top of the flower!
These loose rhinestones really sparkle, and kind of make the colors of the flower pop!
(and who doesn't like a little extra glitter?)

Once you've finished embellishing it, you're done!
Simple, fast and pretty!


Enjoy!

Happy Monday!

Very cute! I'm so glad I "rediscovered" your blog! We were bloggy friends when I was blogging over at Windy Poplars, but I have since moved, and lost touch with all my girls! Great to visit here again, and I love your scheduling idea. I did that for awhile at WP, and it was so nice to have a framework or what to blog about! So nice. Lastly, on your tea video you mentioned a book about Jane Austen that I had never heard of, but am so excited about! I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!
