I am delighted to welcome a new DIY contributor to the blog today. Lyndsey Harvey from Blooms by Lyndsey.
When I was looking for a handmade decoration that I could add to a purse, I stumbled across a pattern for a ribbon rose. I made one and there began my love of making flowers. I use fabric flowers in bridal bouquets, buttonholes, brooches, hair clips, arrangements and wherever else my imagination takes me!
Today Lyndsey is going to be showing us how to make these cute Flower hair pieces, which can be worn as a hair clip or added to your outfit with a safety pin, to add a touch of Boho.
STEP 1 Take the 2 metres of wired organza ribbon and fold it in half so the wired edges meet and place the length of satin ribbon in between the folded organza ribbon.
STEP 2 Take a length of approximately 1. Thread your needle and starting at the end of the ribbon, closest to the wired edge, sew 3 stitches on top of each other to secure the end of the thread. STEP 3 Using a running stitch each stitch being about 1cm in length sew down the left side of the ribbon, then along the length of the ribbon along the folded edge and up the right side of the ribbon. STEP 4 When you reach the end of the right side of the ribbon, pull the thread and gather the ribbon until you have the number of gathers you would like for your flower, then sew 3 stitches to secure the end of the thread.
STEP 5 Take a circle of felt and sew one end of the ribbon onto the felt with the wired edge on the outside. Then following the edge of the felt, sew the edge of your ribbon about every 3 gathers creating the outside of your flower. STEP 6 Build your flower by spiralling the ribbon inwards and sewing the edge to the felt every 3 gathers, until you reach the centre. STEP 8 Take the second circle of felt and sew the alligator hair clip on to it. Begin by securing the wire to the hair comb.
Continue by attaching your base elements to the comb, usually some sort of greenery. We used fern leaves. Wrap the wire around the comb and the leaf, in between the teeth of the comb. Continue adding elements by wrapping the wire, but be conscious of wire placement. You want it to show as little as possible, so try to hide it under extra leaves. If you must make them the day before, place the finished hair accessory in a cool place or florist's fridge if you have access to one!
Be sure to do a test run before the wedding to be sure that your chosen plants are hardy enough to last overnight. Continue adding elements and wrapping the wire until your arrangement looks good to you. We added a hibiscus flower and attached it by hiding its stem under the leaves. This way the flower covers any exposed wire on the leaves and the leaves cover the wire that attaches the flower. Press the wire flat against the back of the comb with your fingers so nothing will scratch your scalp or get tangled in your hair.
These unique succulent trimmings are the main attraction on this comb, and the delicate purple flowers create the perfect contrasting accent. This is also a good option if you know you need to make your combs the day before.
Succulents tend to be very hardy. Sometimes simple is best. This comb uses a single rose to make a clean, striking statement. Consider how your comb will be worn when arranging your flowers. Sometimes a centered composition will be most appealing, while at other times it may be best to set your flowers off center.
