Nice that I am going to do HOW TO week when the week is 1/2 over?? Yeah, that is just how I roll. I think my blogging has slowed because I have my weird t problem still. tSeet? tI am serious. It is such a pain to correct.. that it has kept me from blogging.
TODAY we are going to do:
HOW TO HAIR FLOWERS
Don't be intimidated by making those cute hair flowers.. they are easy. You just need a glue gun, ribbon, silk flowers, hair clips or a head band, and a lighter.
If you are someone who says, WHO ON EARTH WOULD PUT A BIG FLOWER ON THEIR CHILD'S HEAD...
Anyway, K was in desperate need of some hair accessories, so, I got to work today getting some put together. The one you see above is for Christmas... not really for what she was wearing today.. You can see she wasn't the most "willing" model.
First, get some flowers. Something with lots of petals. It will be easier that way. Get some wire cutters and cut the stem right off, as close as you can.
Peel away the flower petals one by one. Don't worry, we will put them back together again later.
If you aren't going to keep the center, take that off too. It might be glued on, like this one was. If it makes the petals look gunky, don't worry, you can re-arrange the flowers so that doesn't show.
Cover your clip with ribbon. Use a lighter to burn the edges of your ribbon so it doesn't fray. Don't worry, it will just melt it a little. Cover your clip or headband with the ribbon using a glue gun. Get ready for some sweet burns... it is worth it.
See that little piece of gunk? Yeah, you can cover it up later.
So, arrange the flowers like you want them. If you feel like you want a fuller flower, just clip another one and put them together.
Now, glue inbetween all the layers. You don't want that thing falling apart.
