DIY Fashion Accessories Tutorial

DIY Fashion Accessories
          Hi friends...it feels like its been ages since I posted online though actually its been just a fortnight. Here is a fashion accessory tutorial brought to you by my little girl! Yes she made the gorgeous flowers on her head band!
The flowers you see are made from special " Sospeso Trasparente" printed plastic films.Click this link to read more about the beautiful Italian craft of Sospeso Trasparente
Sospeso Transparente 
After cutting out the flower designs, they are heated and embossed using wooden [wood because of its heat conduction properties]embossing tools on a special embossing pad.
Sospeso Trasparente technique
It is indeed magical to see such flat flowers transform into 3 dimensional beauties!

Layered 2 daisies atop with hot glue to create a fuller flower .
My little girl has been coaxing me to allow her to make a video tutorial ..and finally I relented! Here is my little girl showing you How to use Diamond dust to make Sparkling Flowers
You  can also jazz up Sospeso Trasparente flowers  with ice crystals ,inking or glitter!
Hairband tutorial 
Here is how to make any kinda hair band using not only Sospeso flowers but felt, foam, fabric or any other crafty thing you make and want on your head!
Hair Band tutorial 
Materials required 
  • Hairbands : plastic, metal or felt  hair bands - the plain plastic ones are super cheap and ideal for your first experiment!
  • Foam- thin craft foam is the best but if you only find the thicker one-- that's okay too
  • Glue Gun
Hair Band tutorial  
Cut a thin rectangular piece of foam long enough to wrap around your hairband.Keep its width smaller than the size of your flower so that the foam base is hidden when you stick your flower
Hair Band tutorial 
Hot glue the foam strip around your hair band.

Apply your flower directly on to this foam strip or for a more secure attachment, stick a  circle/ square foam piece atop this foam strip with hot glue. You can use a glue dot also to stick foam to foam but the best adhesive for foam is hot glue!

And if you are wondering why I chose foam rather than felt or any other material to form the base for our Sospeso Trasparente  flower- its because when using the hot glue..the plastic and foam melt and fuse to each other giving a very firm adhesion which can survive the many antics a little girl's hair band is bound to be subjected to!

We made one more foam strip - disc to attach a 2nd diamond dusted Sospeso flower!

Every girl loves matching accessories! So we made a matching necklace using more Sospeso Trasparente flowers

We made a Sospeso Trasparente flower with ice crystals following this tutorial : Sospeso Ice crystal effect and added them to a plastic base brooch

You can use the brooch as such and pin it to dresses , curtains, bags etc or add it to a chain and use it as a pendant!

Making a Sospeso Trasparente brooch is super simple- hot glue a foam piece to a plastic brooch and stick your flower to the foam disc
