I've quipped on other people's awesome stuff, I've done some swapping, but I'm not sure I've ever posted anything I've actually made...so here goes...


First attempt at a fascinator! I love it but have problems with the wire bending out of whack (do they have heavier gauge wire in the coated colours I wonder?)


Fascinator number 2, made to match my new tattoo, which you can see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334366.msg3870247#msg3870247

Close-up:


#3 Made for a friend at work, ultimately I ended up glueing the end of the feather down so it was curved instead of sticking straight out:

Close up of flower, made from glue gun, pantyhose, glitter, wire. I even made the stamen(?) myself! : )


This was the first attempt beyond glue-gunning a dollar store flower to a hair clip. The black flower was made with pantyhose and wire:


Some other basic-ish ones, embellished with my super AWESOME Martha Stewart glitter <3  I talked about it for days to my co-workers who aren't big craft geeks....


Th-th-th-that's all folks! C & C muchly appreciated!

Those are amazing!  I love them. 

As for the wire, you may want to try a floral supply place.  Cause I know out in LA at the Flower mart they have all kinds of wire in different colors and guages. hope that helps
