My stepsister is getting married this summer and while I was in the whole creative blast (designing and sewing my dress, sewing my sister's...) I felt like re-vamping a pair of shoes (which you can see here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349783.0) and make decorations for my hair.
I decided to go with kanzashis (man it feels wierd writing that in english plural... looks ridiculous) because they felt very suitable. I'm no big fan of decorations that is all bling or metallic, so I like the whole fabricy deal with these things. Plus they seem like a perfect fit for a midsummer's wedding day, don't you think?

I've only ever done this once before, and that was just one flower and a very big one too, so I'm not so good. Nevertheless, here they are and I hope no one will look too closely at them at the wedding =)



I did a quick mock-up of the way I wanted my hair just to test the first few on and see what colours and style I wanted the rest to be in. It was really hasty and sloppy done and I hadn't showered for a week so my hair was dead dry, please forgive the frizzyness and sloppiness of the whole thing:






Now I should really finish the design of the dress.....

Those are really nice! I like the way you have them in your hair! Do you have a tut or know where you got it. I am thinking of making one for my wedding.

thank you both =)

stevediybride- I think there are some pretty good youtube tuts, but the basic is very simple. Cut squares, fold them diagonally, fold them again, glue the tip of them to a centerpiece of some sort (in my case the piece attached to the pins) and et voila. Done. Petalmixer here on crafster has done some really lovely ones, among which I really love her wedding-one! You should check it out if you haven't seen it already.

Those are absolutely gorgeous! I love wearing different things in my hair like that, but I can never get them to look right.

Those are great. I've always been intimidated by kanzashi but if you say they're simple I might give it a try soon. I love making hairpins, and those would be a good addition to my ever-growing collection.

sprinklez- I do cheat a lot ^^ using a hot glue gun instead of rice glue, but when cheating it is really simple, at least if one does not crave perfect results (which I don't)

Those are beautiful.  And you can say your hair was sloppy, but, wow, I wish I could do anything half that gorgeous with my hair!  How did you do that?

Uhm... I kind of just took a chunk of hair, twisted it around and around and around and after a while it sort of double folds and twists over it self and then I just fasten it with a pin. then I do that at andom with all of the hair. Kind of hard to explain, I don't really see what I'm doing when I'm doing it ^^
