With a Hollywood Glamour theme at my sister’s wedding, I knew I wanted some sort of jewels in my hair. I scanned etsy and a few accessory stores for the right piece, but nothing was really tickling my fancy. So, I decided I’d make one! I went to Mood (of Project Runway fame) to take a look at their trimmings, and found these beautiful Appliques. They weren’t cheap, but I was tired of looking and these were just what I had in mind. Here’s how I made them!
1-cut out your applique. mine came on these little mesh screens, yours may not.
2-cut out your felt to fit the back of your jeweled piece. (this is to give it some sturdiness)
3-attach your clip to the felt so that it is in-between each prong.
4-use your glue gun to adhere the felt (and clip) to the jeweled piece.
Note: The more curved side of the clip will be the side that’s glued to the piece. That way the side against your head is flat and more comfortable.
5-clip it in your hair and attend your wedding like your favorite lady of Old Hollywood.
Vivien Leigh? Mae West? Or maybe Veronica Lake? That old peek-a-boo girl..
