While reading Mana's Lost in Inspiration post, I was instantly inspired by one of the pictures that she posted.
|I was inspired by this picture of Himena Osaki|
My eye was drawn instantly to her hair accessory, even though the dress is obviously supposed to be the focal point of the image X)
Okay then, let's get started ^^
You will need:
- Lace trim
- Pretty material (to make a small bow)
- Hot Glue
- Mini Plush (optional/substitutable)
Trace the shape of a small circle onto your piece of cardboard. Looks familiar right? ...maybe. It depends on how familiar you are with my previous materials. But since I've already covered the next few steps in a previous post, I'll just link it here.
Follow the instructions on the linked post until the point where you have a yarn-covered piece of cardboard
Make a small bow with your material (it doesn't have to look as pathetic as mine). Size is up to you. I rarely measure anything, which is why I haven't offered any example measurements for this post ><
Cut a piece of lace trim that will be able to surround your yarn-covered cardboard piece.
Use hot glue to attach your lace trim.
...and the bow.
I'm going to use this little guy as my centerpiece ^^. Himena's accessory has a rabbit, but I'm obviously improvising.
Attach your centerpiece.
Oh, and speaking of improvisation, it's not absolutely necessary to use an animal. The only requirement is that it must be pretty =P
Last step, add a bobby pin. Normally, I would have used a snap clip. However, this seemed like a better idea to use on an accessory that would eventually be attached to a ponytail (or is it just me? Whenever I use snap clips on a ponytail they always come undone because of the curvature.)
That's all, I hope everyone enjoyed this post ^^
Oh, and if you have an inspiration picture that you would like me to copy an accessory from, you can tweet me @magicpearlheart ^^~
