We have seen pretty ones covered in real flowers but we really wanted to see if we could create a faux flower veil with the same ‘WOW’ effect? As it turned out it was one of the easiest DIY’s we have ever tried.

Step 1:

Start by taking a selection of large and small flowers and attach in a cluster around the comb, using your glue gun. This will ensure the comb stays fully hidden when the veil is being worn.

Step 2:

Using larger flowers, starting at the top, glue the flowers at random intervals around the veil working your way down to about half way.

Since beautiful fresh summer flowers seem a million miles away right now we thought it would be nice to add a little colour and floral fun to a plain clutch! You know, just to brighten things up on this dreary Wednesday! (Happy hump day by the way!) This could be an old, unloved clutch that you want to up-cycle or you could grab a bunch of plain new clutches and transform them into great bridesmaid gifts for your gal pals (or you know…just keep it for yourself since it’s so pretty!)

It’s such a simple way to really add the wow factor to this simple accessory and the best news is it requires hardly any materials (Plus it’s super cheap to make!) All you’ll need is a glue gun, a bunch of fake flowers (in the colours of your choice) and a plain clutch! We loved this shade of pink teamed with the white and blue daisy combo!
