I’ve finally had my last exam in the course I’m taking through work, and I’m now looking forward to some actual free time – woohoo! Lucky for me this sudden “freedom” to do what I want coincides with a (rare) weekend when A’s away, and thus I can spend all weekend DIY-ing for the wedding!
So, this was my latest project – making a hairpiece for myself to wear on The day. Or maybe wear, I haven’t entirely given up on the idea of wearing a flower or two in my hair…
I was inspired by this picture and post that I found on Pinterest:
Hairpiece DIY “instructions”
I love the picture where the bride has it in her hair! Granted, her hair is blonder than mine, but I still think that maybe it’d look quite nice in my hair too? I like the delicate look, and since I’ll be wearing lace perhaps it’ll make a nice accessory?
Anyway, I went to Panduro and bought some gold wire and a packet of beads:
The smaller roll of wire was 0,3 mm thick, and unfortunately it constantly broke. The bigger roll was a bit thicker, 0,4 mm wide, and it worked really well!
…and then I started guessing and twisting until I thought it kind of looked like the one in the picture:
Twisting and twisting, trying to make it look like the one in the picture!
And this is how it turned out! I have no idea of how it’s supposed to stay in place in my hair, but I guess that’s for the hairdresser to figure out, eh?
Tacky? Pretty? You decide!
PS. All that twisting will hurt your fingers a bit, just a heads-up!
