DIY Wednesday: Floral Hair Clip
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Caroline Drake

I love the look of a handmade floral headpiece.  You can transform your entire look just by putting one on, and they are super easy to make!  These are great accessories for either a bridal or bridesmaid ensemble.  By making them yourself you can save a lot of money, and add that unique handmade touch.

You’ll need a few supplies: Hot Glue Gun • Glue Sticks • Scissors • Lace and Tulle • Flower (This sequin flower is from Glory’s House) • Small Hair comb (from a craft store) • Feathers (Guinea feathers found on Amazon)

Step One • Using the glue gun, glue the feathers to the back of the flowers.

Step Two • Next, Cut tulle and lace to the size you want, and glue to the back of the flower folding and twisting to where it looks good, then glue it down onto the flower.

Step Three • Continue to glue pieces of lace to the back of the flower, overlapping and situating it on the flower as you like.

Step Four • Glue a small strip of glue to the top front the metal comb and glue it to the back of the flower and lace.

Step Five • Adjust the lace and feathers as needed and glue them down!

DIY Wednesday: Rosemary & Floral Bridal Wreath
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday

Being the Pacific Northwest girl that I am, I swoon over the idea of incorporating fresh herbs and organic elements into a wedding.  Especially rosemary.. mmm, I just love the smell.  Since rosemary is really easy to work with, inexpensive, and holds up well without water, I thought it would make for a gorgeous little hair wreath.  I teamed with up the lovely Ali of Thistledown Photography to prepare this little DIY for you!

Materials: Floral Wire • 3 Bunches of Fresh Rosemary • A Few Sturdy Blooms • Baby’s Breath

Step One •  Make a circular crown out of floral wire.  Try it on your head to ensure that it will sit nicely.

Step Two • Work the rosemary around the wire crown, securing with wire when necessary.  Use the wire sparingly.

Step Three • Arrange three or five blooms in the front of the crown, slightly off center.  Insert the short stems of the blooms into the structure you’ve created, then use wire sparingly to hold in place.

Step Four • Add in small pieces of baby’s breath leading into and exiting from the floral accent, to visually integrate the shape into the rosemary wreath.

Step Five • You can prepare your floral wreath the day before, then store it in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator, away from food.  Spritz the wreath with water to store and keep fresh.
