I have some pretty cool jobs. Aside from designing wedding flowers, blogging and being a Mom, I develop crafts for Design Master Color tools. This is a craft I made for them using their paints.
I see about five wedding trends embodied into this one little bridal fascinator. Ombre’ color palette, coral color, bird cage veiling, rhinestone and pearl jewelry and vintage styling. Fun!
How to make a bridal hair adornment
Rhinestone pin/brooch about 2.5 inches across
Metal hair comb
Hot Glue and hot glue sticks
½ yard of white Russian veiling
1 white ostrich feather
Design Master Sprays in Coral and Perfect Pink
Thin, jewelry wire
6” of ½” wide ivory satin ribbon
Lightly mist the long feathers of the ostrich feather with Design Master’s Coral. Very light coats will keep the feathers from becoming overloaded and sticky with paint. Paint some of the feathers darker and some lighter.
Run a solid bead of hot glue down the spine of the feather making sure to capture the very beginning of the feathers in the glue. Once the hot glue is hardened, cut the spine and hot glue down the center, splitting the spine of the feather in half. This makes the feather trim.
Gather the Russian netting into a small pouf and secure it with the fine wire. Lightly paint the netting with Design Master’s Perfect Pink. Light coats are best until you have achieved the color you desire.
Gather and stack the feather trim until you have organized the color into an ombre’ color effect going from dark to light. After you have the look you desire, hot glue the feather trim to secure. Hot glue the ombre feather trim to the netting pouf. Place the brooch on top of the feather and netting and wire into place. You can also add hot glue to the back of the brooch for added security.
Wire the metal comb into place at the back of the netting. Make sure to capture netting, feathers and some of the brooch when wiring the comb to the adornment to insure security. Wrap the top of the small metal comb with ivory ribbon. This keeps the wires holding the comb in place from scratching the wearer.
