Fabric Flower Hair Accessories for Wild Orchid Crafts

Hello, everyone and happy Monday!! It's my turn to post on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog and I'd love for you to stop by if you have time :) This month, the designers were challenged to step outside of our crafty box and create projects that were different from our norm.


For my projects today, I created hair accessories using gorgeous fabric flowers.


For the headband (that could be used for a wedding) I used Almond Blossom, Almond Blossom and Babies Breath Flowers.


I also used Pearl Drop Trim, Flat Back Pearl String, Pearl Spray, White Stamens and Bead Berry Sprays.


Let me introduce you to my model...this is Francesca, or as I call her, Franny :)


Isn't she beautiful??!! Franny was a birthday gift from my parents last year :) One of my favorite things to do is dress her for the holidays.


Here she is, in all her patriotic glory, celebrating the Fourth of July :)



For this barrette, I used Autumn Blossom and Babies Breath Flowers.


I adhered the flower to a piece of grungeboard that is sturdy but malleable. I then glued it to the barrette.


For this barrette, I used Autumn Blossom and Babies Breath flowers, as well as Bead Berry Sprays, Skeleton Leaves, Mulberry Leaves and Pearl Sprays.




Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great day!!

Pamellia Johnson said...

What a genius out of the box idea for using all the gorgeous flowers! These are so pretty, I especially love the strand of pearls on the headband. So classy and elegant! The colours are wonderful for feminine hair bands and the flowers are used are perfect, so delicate and dainty!!

Still been working on the patio redesign. I'm installing planters and shelves and moving things around, all in hopes of being able to hide my bird and squirrel food dishes from the complaining neighbours. I feel bad for the poor squirrels, it's like a scavenger hunt every time they come because the dishes are in a new spot. lol. I hope you are enjoying your summer my friend, sending hugs from way up North! :)

Billie A said...

Beautiful head bands. Perfect for weddings. I love the colors and the white one is awesome with all of the pearls. Beautiful work.

Georgiana said...

Those hair pieces are awesome. I can see you selling a bunch of them (unless you only want your mermaid wearing them).

Creations by Shirl said...

Wow what a pretty sets of headbands. I'm sure they must of look pretty on all those recipients.
I'm a bit late again with my comments, been too busy again this past summer. Hope to come by as soon as I can. Take care and enjoy your new week ahead....
