New York, New Yo...
Here at BurdaStyle HQ, we’ve been feeling charmingly old-timey: we’re obsessed with fascinators and bow ties! We’ve been pinning scraps of tulle and taffeta in our hair lately, and today we decided to make a real one. You make recognize the basic premise of making the circles from our How To Make Silk Flowers. For the fascinator, we’ll shape the circles differently, and add some loose layers of tulle also. I really wanted to add some twigs with berries, but I didn’t want to wreck our Christmas decorations! Be creative with these, perhaps try contrasting fabrics, add some silly decorations, use them as a corsage or top of a beautifully wrapped gift with one.
shantung or taffeta for the top layer, tulle for the bottom layer, hair accessory (bobby pin, barret, etc)
