So you’ve fallen in love with a headpiece, now what? You’re not sure how you want to style your hair around it whilst still showcasing it? Well worry no more because today we’re going to be sharing 3 stylish & modern ways that you can show off your wedding headband, from down tasseled curls, to…Details
Flower crowns are one of my favourite accessories not only when it comes to weddings but also festivals (and every day life!) whether they’re real flowers, faux flowers or paper flowers I’m seriously obsessed, and all the better when the colours are as bright and bold as this DIY flower crown we’re sharing with you today! Holly from Club Crafted is going to demonstrate how fun making a crown like this is, they would look so adorable on little flower girls or even a great craft to do at a bridal shower! Over to Holly…
When I, Holly, set out to make paper flower crowns, I struggled with how to make flowers that were both simple to make and that would not appear cheesy or childish. After trying out a few different flower designs, I have two styles of flowers to share (with a template!) to make this project as easy as possible for you but still feel elegant, and once put together, these flower crowns are perfect for a bridal shower project or any other type of event you want to celebrate.
I’ll warn you, making these crowns is fun but will be a long process. Just use a variety of your favorite spring colored paper and start cutting! Once all of the pieces are cut and curled, the gluing is a piece of cake. If you have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, you can upload these PNG templates to cut for you. Otherwise, note that cutting by hand may take some time to cut enough flowers to fill the crown. There are two types of flowers: large individual petal flowers and smaller one-piece flowers.
YOU WILL NEED:
Coloured cardstock, including green for leaves // White cardstock // Scissors // Glue gun and glue sticks // Paper flower templates //
If cutting by hand, print the paper flower templates in your desired size and use them as templates to cut out flowers from the colored cardstock. The one-piece flowers should be about 4 inches wide. The individual petal flowers should be about 2 inches wide for the large petals and 1.5 inch wide for the small petals (5 large, 5 small per flower).
Note, cut some petal shapes out of green paper for leaves and cut the comb-looking pieces out of a yellow or similar color to be the middles of the flowers.Details
Today’s DIY is all about the fun factor! This pom pom veil would be perfect to make for a bride to be ready for that hen party or bridal shower!
Forget the cheesy sash’s and tiaras why not upgrade a veil into something far more fun and modern?! It’s no secret that pom poms are everywhere right now and we love the idea of incorporating them into a little bit of wedding fashion! (Especially when they’re as bright and colourful as these!)
And don’t get me wrong we still think this would look kick ass on a bride for her wedding day too! It’s beyond cute and the best news is that it really couldn’t be easier to make plus you only need a few items…
YOU WILL NEED:
A Veil // Pom Poms // A Glue Gun //
Lay out your veil onto the floor and place the pom poms where you want them. I place three onto the clip and then varied the rest throughout the veil making sure that no two pom poms of the same colour were too close to each other.
We’re super excited to be sharing not one, not two but three DIY hair clip tutorials today from one of our DIY contributors Kaleigh! There’s a clip to suit 3 different styles so whether you’re into rustic vibes, girlie florals or pretty pearls then there’s a tutorial for you, and all perfect timing with spring on the horizon! Over to Kaleigh from Paper Moon Collective to share more…
For a DIY bride it’s the handmade details that make the big day even more special. Creating something you can wear down the aisle means creating a keepsake that you can enjoy for years to come. No matter what your bridal style may be, these hair clips are guaranteed to add a unique touch to your look.
I’ve created three easy to make clips that can all be completed in just three simple steps! No stressing over the little details here!
THE RUSTIC BLING
YOU WILL NEED:
A Barrette // Jute Ribbon // A Gem // Beads // Scissors // Wire Cutters (Optional) // Hot Glue Gun // Super Glue //
Cut a piece of jute to fit your barrette. Then apply hot glue to the top of the barrette and place the jute so no metal is showing. Cut any excess jute off.
Using more hot glue, add your gem to the center of your barrette!
Tip: If your gem is actually a button like mine was, you may need to use wire cutters to clip off the back before gluing it to your barrette.
Add a small amount of super glue to the bottom of your beads and place them in a line on either side of your gem.
THE FLOWER POWER
You Will Need:
A Barrette // Faux Flowers & Leaves // Gray Felt // Scissors // Hot Glue Gun //
Start by laying out a design for your flowers.Details

Upload the GRL PWR template to the Cricut Design space then size the design to fit your jacket.Details
Brides in denim jackets are beyond cool. There’s simply no denying it. And we’ve seen a huge trend in denim patch jackets this year (the 80s are coming back baby!) So if you’ve got a denim jacket in the cupboard that you want to give a little revamp to (whilst also being practical and keeping yourself warm on your wedding day!) then we’ve got the perfect DIY for you! The best part is we’ve designed our very own patches that you can print out and use on your jacket! (say whhaaatttt!)
There’s a bumble bee patch, a peace sign, a watermelon, a pretzel and loads more available to download completely free and you can print and create them right in your own home! Our inkjet printer can be a little iffy printing things that isn’t paper but it had no problem printing out the patches onto the fabric when it was set to print on ‘photo paper’.
YOU WILL NEED:
Download our patches above and print them off onto the fabric.Details
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!Details
Happy Monday guys! I’m so excited to be kicking off the week with another DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! They have the most insanely beautiful natural confetti which we’ve already created a fun floral ice bucket with, featured free abstract confetti cones and even made temporary tattoos with their natural confetti! Now today is all about creating something pretty for your bridesmaids with these petal pendants!
YOU WILL NEED:
Natural confetti in your choice of colours // A pendant kit (we got ours from Ebay) // Chains for your pendants // All purpose glue //
In case you haven’t heard we’re going to be attending The Handmade Fair this weekend with Cricut and we are SO excited about it! One of the things we really wanted to make for our stand was a fun and cute bridesmaid dress and since embellishments and floral print are so in right now we gave that a go! I just LOVE how pretty it turned out, a dress like this really would make the most amazing bridesmaid outfit!
YOU WILL NEED:
A plain dress (we got our pastel pink one from Asos) // A Cricut machine // Metallic Poster board // All purpose glue // A glue gun //
The first step is to make all of the flowers, I used flower templates that were available on the Cricut design space and there are literally hundreds to choose from!
Once you’ve found your shapes you’ll want to vary the sizes of them, I sized the smallest flowers 0.5 inches wide, then the medium sized ones 1 inch wide and the larger flowers around 2 inches wide.
If you caught our video on ‘clear skin in 6 steps‘ then you’ll know that getting your beauty sleep in the lead up to your wedding is vital for having clear glowing skin on the big day! So we thought it would be fun to lend a helping hand with this and create 3 different styles of eye masks you can wear to make sure you get some shut eye! If you’re a bridesmaid reading this then why not make one of these for the bride to be? It’s a super fun gift to give in the lead up to the wedding!
YOU WILL NEED:
Cut the templates out using your Cricut Explore (remembering to tick reverse image so it doesn’t iron out backwards!) or get your iron on letters ready.
Place your letters/template in the middle of your eye mask and make sure you’re happy with the placement and that everything is central!
