Hola&Bambi

Pink Foam Bridal Roses - £2.99 Hobby Craft
Cream Foam Roses - £1.49 Hobby Craft
Fabric Covered Alice Bands - £1.99 NewLook
 
There are various stockists of rose crowns and floral headpieces but at £28, £36, £55...WHATTT!?? No way in hell am I paying those sort of prices when I can and have made my own, for the tidy price of £6.47 with materials left over!! I used the pale pink headband for this as I already have a plan for another one that requires the black plus its basically all covered so it doesn't even matter. Easy as pie just choose your roses, I went for two colours and two slightly different styles and sizes! Use the wire stem to wrap them securely around the alice band in the order and spacing that you want and when they're all in place you can do what I did  which was simply running a few stitches along. They were already secure but this was just insurance! I adoreeeee how it turned out and the way its soo big and definitely something special. Also just to let you know, Hobby Craft is amazing for these sorts of things, they have a whole bridal section and theres so much to choose from for surprisingly reasonable prices! Will you be recreating  this DiY and making your own rose crown?

  10. This is beautiful you are so talented and artistic and you are right they are pretty expensive and from the materials you have used it really is an cheaper option for something nicer. I have been in hobby craft and love it as theirs so much to pick from but leaves you out of pocket when you leave haha lovely post :) x
