    Hi Ladies

     

    I've searched everywhere - including etsy to find a pefect pink tip plumeria flower for my hair.  Well - since I had no luck finding a silk one that's already made into a pin, I ordered just the flower with hopes that I can make a pin out of it. I'm totaly lost when it comes to DYI craft projects.

     

    1. Can I make it into a pin or something that actually holds it to the hair?

    2. If I take the flowers as is, do you think the hair salon/dresser will be to use something so they stay in the hair?

     

    You advise and comments are always appreciated :)

    I think it depends how heavy the flower is and your hair type.  I know for me I have extremely fine hair and nothing seems to stay in my hair.  Maybe check with the hair salon on how they would attach it to your hair.

      I would buy one of those clear or metal hair combs and sew it to the flower, or a small claw clip.  You can also glue some felt or sturdy material to the back of the flower and then sew the clip to that.

      also you should check out youtube for ideas.  i found this simple video tutorial, I am sure there are others! http://www.youtube.c...h?v=dBHJRT6-Ovw
