Big Day DIY: Fancy-Schmancy Hair Bling
So this is pretty self-explanatory. In a search for something to wear in my hair, I did find a few things that tickled my fancy . . . but they came with a very hefty price tag. Instead of buying new, I wanted to try and make something myself first. I just ripped the flower off an old headband, grabbed some beading wire, and made a bunch of little beady branch-like things. All this with no plan, and it turned out surprisingly well.
Some day, when I master the art of taking photos of my own head, I’ll show you what it looks like on an actual human. It looks so much better in its natural environment – all the beads and pearls look like they’re floating and the wire doesn’t really show at all.
Total cost of the headband I wanted to buy: $180.00
Total cost of the headband I made: about $3.00
