For this project I used a Sweet Briar Flower, but I swapped out the centre for a Pretty Pearls Rhinestone. (You may choose to keep the centre that the Sweet Briar comes with). Cut the thread at the back of the flower that is holding the centre beads together. This will also make your petals come loose, so don’t lose the order.

You will have to glue the petals one by one to secure them. Then add glue to the back of the rhinestone you chose and glue it to the centre of the flower.

Cut out a 6” piece of French Veil Netting and pleat it in the middle by squeezing the middle of the netting in between your fingers.

I stitched the middle of the french veil netting to keep it secure.  Take your first felt circle and apply glue to the top half. Attach the pleated portion of the netting to the glue on the felt circle.

Attach the feathers on top of the netting. I used 2 Ostrich Grizzly Feathers and folded them in half which gave me 4 pieces. However, you can use as many feathers as you would like. The number of feathers you use, will depend on the length you are going for. Apply more glue to the felt circle and attach the flower.

Place the netting straight up and down, or at an angle. When you like the placement, flip the hair piece over and attach your clip. I put glue on another felt circle, clamped it between the clip and then glued it to the felt circle that was previously glued to the flower. Now you are done.

Now you can use the Fold Over Elastic to make a headband with a loop and attach the flower to it. The headband is nice for younger kids, but the flower may also be worn alone with the clip.

I love this flower, because adults can use it for fancy events or even weddings.  I have also made this flower for photographers to use for special photo shoots. You can also change up the flower, netting placement or feathers to easily change the look of this fancy flower hair piece.
