How To Make A Fake Flower Accessory

In a world where fashion is so mass-produced, it can be hard sometimes to find a unique wardrobe. One of the best ways to add some originality to your look is to create it yourself.

You will need

* fake flower
* a pair of scissors
* blank pin or blank barrette
* hot-glue gun
* beads, crystals or sequins (optional)

Step 1:
Trim The Stem
With a pair of scissors, cut the stem off of the fake flower. You want to make sure to cut enough off so that you are now working with a flat surface.
Step 2:
Hot Glue
You'll need to let the glue heat up for a few minutes before working with it. After it's heated, put some glue on the base of the flower and press it against the base of a blank pin. Blank pins can be found at craft stores in the jewelry supply section. If you want something for your hair instead, glue the flower onto a plain barrette. Depending on the size of the pin or barrette you get, you may be able to fit more than one flower onto your new accessory. Let the glue dry for several hours before wearing.
Step 3:
After the flower is attached to the pin or barrette, you can decorate your flower as desired. Use the hot glue gun for this as well. You can glue on sequins, beads or crystals to the fabric of the flower or to the remainder of the pin or barrette. Get creative and have fun with it! Let the glue dry again for a few hours before wearing.
