One day during a dress fitting， I fell in love with a hairpiece the bridal store had. When I turned it over I was bummed to see that it was $60. But upon further thought， I decided that I could make an equally chicpersonalized gifts for him for birthday， DIY bridal？hairpiece for less!
I purchased some assorted tulle and felt at a local fabric store for about $3. And I tracked down a vintage brooch for $20. I was willing to pay a little extra for the brooch because I can remove it from the hairpiece and use it after our big day! And this one was perfect， the dangles on it reminded me of arrows， a symbol of my sorority， and the baguette shapes remind me of my engagement ring and wedding band. I already had a needle and thread and a small hair clip.custom teacher gifts
I started by making a flower pattern (that's it with the red stripe) and cutting it out of the finer tulle about 24 times. This will vary depending on how full and overlapping you would want your piece. I had a wider tulle that I folded into the rectangle shape that I wanted. I then laid all of the flower shapes and larger tulle together and began to sew around the brooch. Once I felt that I had securely fastened the brooch to the tulle flower I finished my sewing with a secure knot and glued a circle of felt to the back. I wanted to make sure that this part is small enough that you do not see it from the front. I then glued the small hair clip onto the felt.
And for $23 I have a more personal hairpiece and I think it looks just perfect!
