Have you seen the latest floral hair ties in shops this season?!!! Oh my goodness I absolutely adore these! The ones pictured here (all from ASOS) are bun holders and are designed to create a perfect ring of flowers around a statement bun. So pretty! There is no way I can pick a favourite out of these three as I absolutely love them all.
I really want to make an exact copy of all of these but today I’m doing something slightly different. I came across some gorgeous bunches of yellow fabric flowers during the week. They were bigger flowers than the ones featured here, so were not going to be overly suited for creating something similar to these. They were also not big enough to make a statement in themselves so I had to come up with another idea for them. Inspired by the bun holder at the bottom I decided to create a mixed floral hair tie.
Mixed Fabric Flower Hair Tie
1. Select your flowers
2. Gently pull flowers away from plastic stem (they should come off pretty easily).
3 – 4. Grab the needle and thread and sew the layers of flower together.
5. Sew into hair tie.
6. Sew flowers onto hair tie.
I really love this idea and can’t wait to try different mixes of flowers and colours. It’s so easy! I imagine I’m going to make a lot of these.
I got these bunches of fabric flowers at the $2 store. Craft stores are a good source of flowers and they are also super easy to make yourself. You could try adding some regular flower hair accessories onto your tie too.
TIP: You can seal fraying edges of flowers with clear nail polish, glue, specific no fray products or by melting them over a tea light candle! Be careful not to burn them though!
The hair accessories I featured at the top of the post attached the flowers by gluing on a felt backing. I’m sure this would work just as great . I chose to sew this time as I felt it would be quicker and easier for me. (I kind of wanted to wear it straight away!)
If appropriate you can finish off the look by glueing a gem or button into the centre of the flowers.
