Is there anything better than having your family over on a Sunday?
Cook a very fattening but comforting meal for a bunch of people, watch a tons of senseless movies, drink coffee, play, laugh and lastly have them vanished on Sunday evening!
You see? That's why it's those imperfectly planned Sundays are so good, because we all know the chaos is temporary, I know I would go crazy if I had to tend to 20 people at once. Now you understand why I gave up on having a large family. On those days, however, memories are created and cherished, and I won't replace that for a sink full of dishes!
Anyhow, Here's my eldest niece, Jadah. She wanted to feel pretty, so I made her a hair clip and took a few pics. I still need to get used to the settings on my camera, so the pictures are not what I want them to be.
This flower is incredibly easy to make, Here are the simple instructions:
- Any synthetic silk fabric
- A tea light candle
- The following pattern to cut the circles
- Hot glue gun
- Embellishment: Pretty button, rhinestone or a pearl.
- Cut the circles from the pattern, according to the pattern.
- Carefully snip into the circle to make petals, as shown in the pattern.
- Now for the most intricate part: Lit your tea light and hold your circle about 3" above the flame to above burning. The heat will melt and cringe to form and form a flower
- Repeat for all the different circles / petals
- Finally, hot glue all the pieces together, from largest to smallest and place your embellishment in the middle of your inner flower.
- To use as a hair clip, sew or glue the back of the flower to the back of a bobby pin, ponytail holder, or snap-clip.
- For a brooch, you can sew or glue them onto a broach pin or even a safety pin.
