DIY: Flower Hairpiece


This week, I'm showing you different ways to style the floral pin from the DIY: Flower Pin Tutorial. So far, I've already covered how to make a Floral Hair Clip and Floral Headband


Today, I'll show you how to create this girly and romantic hairstyle using the flower as a floral hairpiece. Unlike yesterday's tutorial where we added a hair clip to the back of the pin, today's tutorial shows you how to save time and skip that step while still allowing you to be able to style the floral pin in your hair.


HERE'S THE HOW TO:

1.  Pull your hair up into a high bun.

2.  If you made the floral hair clip from yesterday's tutorial, all you have to do is clip it in place where you'd like it to sit on the bun. 
---- Or ----
If you'd like to cheat (it's ok, that's allowed)... make sure the pin on the back of the flower is firmly closed so that it doesn't poke you when you put it in your hair.  Secure the flower to the bun by inserting a few hairpins through the pin on the back of the flower.  Simple as that.






You could easily use the 'cheat' method to secure any type of pin (i.e. brooch pins, etc. etc.) to your hairstyle.  The possibilities are endless.

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the next floral pin styling tutorial.  See you then!

      I enjoyed seeing your summer minibook over on your blog. I really need to get in the habit of creating memory books like that. What a great and memorable project!

    1. Glad you like it. Wearing a flower really makes you feel like such a girl. Probably something to do with the cute and dainty aspect... ;)

  10. I really like how you've taken one thing and by making really small (and easy) changes, completely expanded the possibilities. Being someone who has increasingly become aware of how much of a consumer-whore she is, I'm trying really hard to maximize use out of everything that I own. This is such a great example of being able to have new things without buying them separately.

    I'd totally attach this pin to a tote, too, just to change it up a little. :)

    1. I love finding new ways to style things. Keeps it interesting.

      And I love, love, love your idea to put the flower on a tote. See, you're already a pro at this! I'm gonna try to get a post with your idea up on Saturday... I'll give you and Kizzling Around a big mention since it was your clever idea!

      Thanks for sharing! :)
