I love wearing flowers in my hair! They’re so spring-y and feminine and just make my day better. They also go really well with most historical eras and vintage looks.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your very own hair flowers. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want a whole bouquet!
You’ll need scissors, a needle, and thread. I almost always sew with a thimble, but it isn’t absolutely necessary. Your flower can be any kind you like! For me, flowers that are somewhat flat on the back work the best (see next picture to see what I mean). The blue one came from the locally-owned all-things-girly store. My preferred clips are the mini alligator kind with little teeth because they don’t slip out. (Really! I went to a ball and danced reels, jigs, and polkas, and it didn’t budge!) I bought mine at Hobby Lobby. The blue quilted/embroidered pillow sham is optional. 😉
4. Knot off the thread and weave the ends back behind the stitches.
I had fun playing with PhotoShop for this one.When wearing flowers, you don’t have to limit yourself to only one at a time. I wore my two red ones for Christmas last year (click here for more pictures in color). By the by, this is my vintage hairstyle for straight hair– tutorial coming someday!
While we’re on the subject of hair flowers, I’ve heard that which side you wear them on has a meaning. Does anyone know which way means what?
