~in the hair?~

I've seen these satin flowers all over blogland and have been wanting to try them myself. I just needed the right motivation!

My niecy-poo's wedding= perfect motivation.

Colleen looked at a flower for her hair when we went wedding dress shopping. It was gorgeous - but it also had a $99.00 price tag. For a flower. Attached to bobby pins! I guess you can just call me CHEAPO - but that seems OUTRAGEOUS to me!

Anywho, I whipped these up as a sample to see if she will be interested in perhaps wearing something like this in her hair.

{Colleen, I promise not to be offended if you decide not to!....sniffles.} ;D

I've read tutorials for these all over the place and I can't credit any particular blog because I didn't follow one particular tutorial.

Basically you cut the several shapes from satin in graduated sizes. Use a candle to melt the edges, layer them, tack together in the center with needle and thread and add any embellishment you want to the center. You can add a pin or hair clip to the back depending on how you plan to wear it!
