Making your own bridal headpiece will make sure that you get exactly what you want in your hair on your wedding day. There are so many things that you will want perfect, and your headpiece should be exactly what you want. Let’s look at some bridal headpiece crafts that you can do yourself to make your perfect headpiece.
First, design what you want. You want to design how your hair will be that day and then design your headpiece. How you want your hair will determine how you have your headpiece and what it looks like. If you want something colorful then pick the flowers or materials that you are going to use. There is a ton that you can use. You can use pearls, fake flowers, real flowers, ribbon, other trims, rhinestones and so much more. Design on paper what you want and then go buy it.
Buy a little extra of what you need. You can always take it back if you don’t open it and keep the receipts (as long as it’s not on clearance). So many times people come back to a store and want something only to find the store doesn’t sell it any more or they are out of it and won’t get any more in time. It is better to be safe than sorry. A lot of time people are on a strict budget and so just do one project at a time or as soon as you are finished with the one project take back any unused items. It will keep money in your pocket while making sure you have what you need.
If you want a headband sort of headpiece, buy a plain white headband. You can also buy wire headbands that aren’t as thick. Decorate around it. You can add ribbon to the wire headband to cover up the wire. You can add simple rhinestones too to the headband so it almost looks like you just put the rhinestones right in your hair.
If you are going to make a headpiece that is more like a crown, buy a plain wire crown from a craft store. They usually come in headband forms, but you can tweak them or find ones that are specifically made for crowns, or even smaller girls that would work for a crown. You want something that will hold on to your hair and that has clips. If you can’t find one like that, you can always use bobby pins, but be sure that the bobby pins will work will how you have your hair on that day.
To decorate a crown, you will want to cover the entire thing. You can hot glue gems, fake diamonds, flowers, whatever goes with your personality. Use ribbon to decorate the crown or to cover the wire part. Be creative.
There isn’t an exact way to make a bridal headpiece or crown. You have to design and make your own. It is your wedding and you get to decide how everything is. You can even buy a ready made headpiece and add some of your own touches to it. There is a lot of selection and things to use, so look around for ideas when designing your own bridal headpiece.
