Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers - DIY: Gorgeous Chiffon and Tulle Flowers Photos By: Olivia Kanaley For this project you will need fabric - we used chiffon and tulle. Yardage needed will vary based on the number and size of flowers, as well as the fabric thickness. To make a stencil first free hand a rose petal shape and cut out. Take some fabric and fold it into a square a little larger than your flower pattern. Stack flower cut outs, alternating fabric types and staggering petals. Pinch together the center of the flower (from the bottom) and secure with stitches to create volume and give the flower and authentic shape. If desired you can sew decorative beads in the inside center of the flower. Finally, sew the flower to a hair clip or comb. You can also create a tie-on corsage or sash, by sewing one or more flowers to a length of silk ribbon.
PIN IT UP, GIRL - thebeautydepartment.com - StumbleUpon Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night. Tools you’ll need: curling iron (to prep the hair with waves), sectioning clips, teasing comb or brush, clear elastic rubber band, bobby pins, light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end).

DIY Ruffle Garland Hi sweets! It’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt and I am really excited about this DIY today…I’ve been meaning to share it with you. As you may know, the first thing I started selling in my shop were ruffled fabric garlands. I like them because they are pretty and girly and sometimes as a mom of two boys, you really need something feminine. Make these for your wedding, use them for your mini munchkin’s first birthday, Sweet 16 and your 25th Anniversary. Supplies: 4 yards of fabric Rotary cutter Pinking shears Thread and needle Sewing machine Twill tape or ribbon Wash, dry and iron the fabric. Thread the needle with a 2 yard length of thread, doubling over so you have a total length of 36”. Gently gather, and repeat. Once you have the length of garland you need, tie off the thread in a knot to hold the gather. Now, for the sewing machine part. Be careful that the ends of your fabric don’t get caught under the needle; this is why we keep the ruffle flat with the edges to the side. 1.
