So I finally got all the right materials to make hair flowers for my 2 BMs. And I think they turned out quite well!

I did do a search and saw that Morgan had posted a great DIY hair flower thread, but I made mine in a different way. Rather than wiring, I used felt, a glue gun and alligator clips.

 

Here are the steps and pics of the finished product.

Hope this saves some of you lots of time and frustration!

 

I bought a very cheap bunch of fabric flowers at Michaels (2.99 for the whole thing). I would have liked better quality, but I'm on a tight budget at this point and I don't think it's going to matter in the end!

 

OH - here's the hair inspiration that my girls chose. The flowers I made are smaller and their hair is very dark.

So I bought the flower stem, cut the flowers off and then pulled the stem all the way out as well as the centre bit, so that the petals came apart as well as all the plastic bits:

Using the little crystal brad that I had in the pic above, I put together the pieces as they were before and used the brad as the centre, to hold them all together. I fastened it at the bottom.

I bought some alligator clips at the drug store (fairly small ones) and some felt at Walmart and cut strips of felt. I heated up the glue gun and put a bit on the upper inside of the clip and attached the felt.

I wrapped the felt around and then glued it a few more times so that it was securely around the clip and the clip opened and closed fine.

Then I glued the flower ontop of the clip.

Here it is quickly on my head, for perspective. I feel like a rock star punk.gif

At Michael's - a big craft store. I think it's American. It was a little box of about 20 or 30 and it was about $5. cheer2.gif

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
