I got a flower from Michael's, took it apart and re-glued it to re-enforce it's strength, layed on a few layers of tulle, then a few feathers, a piece of felt, and a clip. And I glued on some Swarovski crystals in the center. I tried it out on my friend(pictured with braid) cause I'm doing her hair for her wedding. She loves it.
