In theory, all DIY projects are fun—until you are up all night before the big day trying to pull together the finishing touches. This project, on the other hand, is ABSOLUTELY fun!
We had a blast making these super easy, coordinating bridesmaids hair accessories. It’s the perfect way to get the girls together for a little down time before the wedding, let each bridesmaid express her own style and get the chance to play with a hot glue gun. What more could you ask for?
Each of these perfectly represents the personality of the girl who made it. Can you tell which hair clip belongs to each Wedding Paper Divas blogger?
Step 1: Gather the Supplies
Select a range of supplies to match your wedding theme. You’ll need:
- a hot glue gun
- hair clips
- some kind of base
- little craft flowers
- jewels for an extra special touch.
We chose shimmery gold leaves, peachy pink scrapbooking flowers and miniature stick-on pearls. Remember—different sizes and coordinating colors will make everything look pulled together without being too matchy-matchy.
Step 2: Get the Girls Together
Lay out the supplies, pop open a bottle of wine and let the good times roll. It’s the perfect excuse to turn DIY duties into a mini-party!
Step 3: Arrange Your Personalized Hair Accessory
Each of us got to work creating a hair clip we’d be proud to wear down the aisle. By combining the supplies in different ways, we each created a completely unique look that still perfectly matched the overall theme.
Step 4: Glue it All Together
Once the looks are complete, take turns gluing the individual items onto the base leaf with a hot glue gun. Let everything set for a few minutes, then glue the base to the hair clip you’ve chosen and let it cool. Just be careful! I think I burned myself three times during this step…
Step 5: Enjoy Your Finished Bridesmaids Hair Accessories!
Can’t you just imagine us lined up next to the bride at the altar? If you were trying to match the clips to our personalities, Anum made the delicate two-leaf, two-bloom clip with the impeccable lines of mini pearls (only Anum could get them so straight!). Jessy made the cool, indie-style off-center design, and me—well I just like really big flowers.
