This weekend I attended the Holiday Gala for the American Opera Society of Chicago. It was such a lovely evening. I decided to wear the dress that I wore to the opening night of the opera, but I wanted something special for my hair.
Fascinators are really quite simple to make. I used three flowers and then layered them with feathers and stamens that I made from gold wire.
I began with a rather inexpensive poinsettia bouquet that I bought at a local craft store.
To make the stamens, I used a gold wire that you should be able to buy at any craft supply store. I bought mine at Joann's, our craft and fabric store.
Once this was done, I played around with the black feathers. Just a drop of hot glue on the tip of the feather and placed them inside the petals.
