6  Wedding Kanzashi ♥ in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by petalmixer on: August 26, 2009 04:37:43 PM
I was inspired to create wedding kanzashi, after finding out about the Martha Stewart DIY Wedding Crafts contest (running until September 1, if you want to enter!).  There isn't a monetary prize or anything like that, I think you just get featured on her site/show.  Anyways, it's a good excuse to make more kanzashi  Wink

I used the old saying "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" as inspiration. 






Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Happy Saturday all!  Cheesy

I made a hair stick kanzashi, using a black lacquered wood hair stick and Japanese chirimen fabric.  I added a single fall to add some extra movement.
