Super easy hair floof tutorial

24 Aug

A few weekends ago, I went to an  out-of-town bridal shower and bachelorette party. In an effort to bring minimal clothing, I wore the same dress to both. It was pretty simple, a cotton number I found at Kohl’s. However, it fit like a glove, so the fact that it was white cotton tank on top and khaki linen on bottom didn’t deter me.

However, I desperately needed to jazz it up. So I made myself an uber long red necklace, and — the kicker — a bright red hair fascinator.

Is it a little ghetto? Of course. There are right ways to do them, and that’s why you pay other people. When you make it yourself? No one can tell if there’s not a proper little piece of felt on the back of the flower. See?

Now, to start off with, you’ll need:

  • A flower. I went to JoAnn’s and found a stem with the above bloom, which I adored. Most blooms on fake flowers will pop right off.
  • Glue. I suggest E6000, the greatest glue known to man. It can glue paper to fabric to metal to glass, but not your finger to your face.

  • Clips. You can find them in any jewelry supply aisle at a craft store. I used these:
From here, I did the very difficult task of, well, gluing the clip to the flower. My only tip here is to sneak a toothpick into the clip so it doesn’t glue itself shut.
I wish I could say it was more difficult then that, however … voila! A perfect way to jazz up an otherwise dull outfit.

    Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest! The flower turned out wonderful and with the necklace, it was just what that dress needed. 🙂
