Ever since I decided to start shooting glamour photography, I’ve been inspired to do new things. I’m crafty to begin with but this might be my first non crochet related creation. After watching Sue Bryce and her amazing head pieces, I decided to give it a go and this is what I came up with.
Here it is being used.
And of course I had to make a matching tutu skirt
It was my first time trying so I didn’t document it. After posting it on the group and having someone ask me how I did it, I decided to make another one.
Of course, once I got the hang of it, I needed to try other things and this is the other one So below are the directions to make one of these head pieces.
Tulle color of choice ( I used beige) give or take 5 yards
Flower bud or bloom
Needle & Thread
Cut a big circle, about CD size. Cut about four strips of tulle and tie one end. Place a dab of glue on the center of the circle, then place the knot on top of it. Twist the tulle as you go on a circular motion, adding little dabs of glue to hold it in place.
Once you have completed the circle, put the end at the back of the circle and glue it.
Grab about two yards of tulle and fold it in half. In a cascading effect, fold them in layers.
Pinch the center and sew it.
Once you have sewn it, add enough glue to the center. Add the fabric leaves so there’s one on each side(Add the plastic leaves if you have them)
Now place the rosette on top of the leaves leaving room so it’s not covering them. Place flower bud just above the tulle rosette. Then add the butterfly on top of the rosette(optional)
Cut a piece of felt the same size as the berrette and glue it. Once glue has dried, place a good amount of glue on the berrette and place it on the rosette.
And you’re done! Let me know if you get to make any of these. The sky is the limit. Let your imagination fly!
