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 //

STEP 1:

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.

STEP 2:

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.

STEP 3:

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

WHEN THE CARNIVAL COMES TO TOWN…

Colourful retro carnival wedding styled shoot (5)Now that you are engaged, you will probably find yourself looking all over the place for inspiration for your wedding, whether it it be the real weddings on blogs or the latest trend guides in magazines but have you ever thought of checking out styled shoots for a little bit of inspo?? We absolutely love sharing them here because unlike real weddings, vendors have total freedom to go all out and create something epic, no holds barred. Personally I think it’s a great way to not only get an idea of the suppliers personality but is also a great way to get your own creative juices flowing, the realisation that they sky really is the limit.

One of our favourite photographers, Schellie from Six Hearts Photography, tells us why she loves to work on styled shoots, “We love working with other professionals, so when an idea comes to mind, we jump on a chance to be creative with our “Friendors” for an non commissioned project where we have full creative freedom. We call them “Inspiration Collaborations”.

Circus Carnival Wedding Inspiration Theme 27

I think I’ve been to the circus maybe once in my life and I have no memory of it whatsoever, I recall seeing a photo of me at one when I was a little girl! None the less when I think of the circus my mind automatically drifts to trapeze artists & beautiful costumes combined with big tops & twinkling lights! It’s a magical vision in my head and if you ask me, magical goes hand in hand with weddings…

Carnival Wedding Balloon Heart Arch

So what do you do if a hurricane suddenly hits your wedding venue just weeks after you have decided on it. Well you up and move it all to your backyard of course! After Hurricane Sandy demolished Rebecca and Damian seaside venue they decided to renovate their whole backyard and host the wedding there instead. Pretty extreme some might think, but I agree with this couple when they say it will be a memory that they get to keep forever!
