Maya has a cute springtime project on her blog today – a silk flower mash up! She bought a hecka lotta silk flowers, took them all apart, decorated them with all kinds of Tulip and Crafty Chica products and then mixed and matched them as she put them back together.
Finally, it’s spring! I was in need of some color pop in my hair. (As you can see, the magenta wasn’t enough) What better way than to make flower petal mash-up barrettes? I found these flowers on sale at my local Michaels store, so of course I grabbed a variety of colors! I took them all apart then decorated them and then put them back together in different layers and colors.
What’s cool is that you can use these as hair clips, for gift packages, as pins or on headbands, whatever you want! Here is one as a pin on my purse!
- Crafty Chica Extreme Embellishment Glue
- Tulip Fabric Markers
- Pin backs or hair clips or a headband
Separate the petals on all the flowers as shown, and saving the pistol.
Next, add some more color POP using Tulip Beads In A Bottle! This is definitely going to turn heads!
For each color, decorate it in a different way to add contrast in the design. From experimenting, I found it was easier to use Aleene’s Brush On Tacky Glue to apply the glitter!
I used Tulip Fabric Markers to draw on some cute designs. Let the petals dry before placing them together.
Ta Daaaaaah! Here they are! Now I’m ready to enjoy spring time the appropriate way! You can use these as pins, the final touch on a shirt, hat, or purse. OR you can even attach them back on to the stems to make a bouquet!
She is still going at it with this love song thing! I wonder if she will really get to 52 songs by the end of the year? I’m happy she is trying!
