When Amy from Start Creative Studio asked us to be part of an Upcycled Fascinator Rainbow Parade, the obvious answer was YES!!! Rainbows! Upcycling! Fascinators! These are a few of my favorite things. We made our fascinator with a cereal box base and upcycled old artwork to make paper flowers, which you can check out here. Then we added some feathers and gold lacy ribbon to complete the look. We might be donning this one for the Royal Wedding!
DIY FASCINATOR SUPPLIES:
- Cereal Box or Thin Cardboard
- Hot Glue Gun
- Paper Flowers, we made ours here
- Flare, feathers, ribbon, lace etc.
- Silver Alligator Clip
MAKE IT: DIY FASCINATOR
Now it’s time to decorate your base! We used recycled paper flowers from
kids old art work, which you can find here. Start by layering your flowers
to see how you want to arrange them on your final fascinator.
Keep height in mind, most fascinators have a bit of height to them, which
I think makes them extra fun!
Once you’ve glued all your pieces on you can add a little flare like ribbon,
lace or feathers. Here’s a tip for getting the feathers to look all fluffy and
beautiful. Fold it in half then glue it onto the back of one of your flowers.
Now it’s time to add that ‘fringy bit’. We used a thick gold ribbon, but it’s
easier to see with the red ribbon below. But basically you start on the side
of the fascinator and create folds which you then hot glue around the
bottom of the base.
