I've always had a fancy for vintage wedding hats and hair pieces. This DIY is inspired from a vintage hairpiece but with less formal supplies, making it an easy wear for a more casual occasion.
Supplies: Thin wool or velvet, needle & thread, hair combs.
Pantry Supplies: Scissors
1. First, cut out petals and circles to create the flowers. Make various shapes and sizes so that your piece will have lots of dimension. 2. Once you've cut out enough shapes, begin forming and sewing the flowers together. I used 5-6 petals for each flower. 3. Continue this process until you've made enough for the hairpiece. I made three large flowers and two small ones. Once you've finished sewing all the flowers, lay them out in the pattern you want so you can get an estimate of the length and size you would like the finished product to be. 4. Then, cut a strip of wool/velvet that is slightly shorter than the length of the flower layout. Turn your flowers right side down and stitch them onto the strip. Lastly, add the combs on the back. I chose black because of my hair color, but for lighter hair colors try a clear, plastic comb!p.s. Take a look at a DIY we made over on Elsie's blog today.
