- Wedding: June 2012
I wasn’t bold enough to go with a hot pink for my bridesmaid gowns so I went with a pistacchio and am accenting everything in the hot pink. I wanted over-the-top hairpieces (just like my own!). I know they’re not for everyone but it’s rare that I pull the “It’s my wedding and I don’t care” card, but this is one of those things!
My instructions aren’t great as I really made it up as I went along but here’s a general guideline:
I bought a soft fabric and cut it into circles and hand sewed the petals one at a time.
I bought rhinestones on a wire and sewed it into the middle of the flower.
The pearl sprays were bought at a wholesale flower store.
I couldn’t find hot pink feathers so I dyed them with a Copic marker.
Once everything was assembled I put it on an alligator clip (this photo was taken before I put them on a clip).
