From foamiran you can make very beautiful hair clips with your own hands. A photo of a product sample is attached above. How to replicate such beauty? You need to purchase sheets of material in four colors: pink, white and two shades of green. Before you get started, you need to draw a pattern of flower petals and leaves. Cut out the templates and transfer them to the material. Now you need to cut the blanks. Stretch the leaves of the rose so that they become wavy, and then, alternately heating each detail on the iron, collect the half-opened buds. According to a similar scheme, you need to create white flowers. When these blanks are created, you can start decorating the scallop. We degrease the workpiece and then use the glue gun to attach the leaves to it. We arrange the greens so that two shades of green harmoniously complement each other, and do not create separate islands. When the leaves have taken their place, place the flowers. They can be glued to the greenery by preheating on the iron.
A beautiful hair ornament can be made from wire and large beads. If you have any natural stones in your arsenal, you can use them. Before starting work, you need to think over the concept of creating jewelry. Draw a sketch. Place several flowers side by side, and fill the space between them with pebbles placed at different heights. If you wish, you can form branches from them. When the sketch is ready, you will need to make the base. Bend a piece of wire in half and twist on top. Repeat thisprocedure 5 times. As a result, you will have 6 hairpin teeth. They should be soldered to any metal plate. It is advisable to use something decorative for this purpose, for example, with engraving. But if there is nothing suitable, you can simply coil the wire with a spring. We fasten the teeth with the frame. Now let's move on to the decorative part. We create a drawing according to a previously drawn sketch. You can string beads on one long wire or create elements in parts. We collect decorative details into a single whole and attach to the base. If necessary, the wire can be soldered.
