Potpourri Hair Piece tutorial
First of all, this is a very random decision! It’s not too long ago that I lost my favourite hairpiece…but i decided to make a new one while window shopping. It was a “what if…?” moment.
Not the best thing I’ve made but it was quite fun.
Total damage: $5
Things you’ll need :
1. Glue (white glue, strong glue, UHU glue, Craft glue – any one of these)
3. Potpourri pack of choice ( I chose lavender)
4. A piece of Felt
5. Hair Clips
Cut the piece of felt into a circle. I wanted it be a little bit firmer so I cut two pieces and stick them together!
Map out the chosen pieces from the potpourri pack to see how you want it to look like roughly.
This can be done after step 1 but it’s up to you. open the hair clips and place them on the felt. Glue a small piece of felt over the part where the hair clip is placed on the felt. Only the top part of the hair clip should be exposed. If you have a bigger hair clip one would do. I only had small ones so in order to support this, I put in two. You must remember that this might be a little heavy so sturdy clips would be real good.
Glue everything into place except the main center piece. As you can see even though you are gluing down everything, things do stick out
So that is why I decided to place another piece of felt to “seal it in”
Lastly stick the center piece. and Voila! you are done! Now leave it to dry~
You can use this as a headpiece or even replace it as a brooch pin. I didn’t really want to post my webcam photo…of me wearing it, but just this once I will…forgive my unkempt hair and make up less face. 😉
Do try it out!
