Get Ready, Get Set, Go!
While catching up on my favourite blogs, I couldn’t help but notice a surplus in floral hairpieces. They have the ability to liven up an outfit, and bring in a simple pop of colour. Rather than trawling through online shops looking to see what I could find, I decided it was time for some DIY. Don’t be discouraged by the three letters; DIY can be really fun! Especially if it’s quick; which this project is! It literally takes about twenty minutes.
Fake flowers (I chose a range of colours), scissors, and pipe cleaners.
There were many different options to hold the whole hairpiece together, but I decided to opt for pipe cleaners. They have a soft exterior which doesn’t irritate your head, and the gentle pink colour I chose made them look rather blossom like!
1. Use your scissors to chop all of the stems so that the flowers are seperated. Be sure to leave enough room (roughly three centimetres) on each of the stems so they can be attached sturdily.
2. Overlap the two flowers and use the pipe cleaners to tie it into place. It usually takes a few attempts to get the first flower sturdy. I wiggled mine around a bit just to make sure the flower wasn’t going to fall off!
4. When your daisy chain is long enough to fit your head, attach the two ends by using the pipe cleaners. I found that my headpiece looked slightly bare, so when I had finished making it the right size I used my leftover flowers to fill the gaps. I also used some of the fake leaves to give it some variety!
Now for the end product; voila!
