I'm always gluing hair flowers and these combs is just one of many I've made over the years.

This pair cost me around 50 pence to make.

I use Bostik All Purpose glue for all my hair flower projects.

Perfect for weddings, rockabilly events and maybe a Luau.

Thank you! Smiley
No, it's a bit more to it than that.
I go round the edges of the flowers with a lighter to stop them from fraying,
then I melt the plastic bit on back and press it flat so they won't fall apart,
then I glue them onto the combs.
I lost so much money over the years on shitty hair flowers on eBay and
rockabilly stalls so I decided to make my own.
