DIY Hair Accessory

This is my current hair inspiration. Long with a slight curl, sides back secured with a hair flower and the bangs swept off the face.

I am planning to DIY my own hair flower to complete the look but I need some help deciding what to do. I had great intentions for this project including cutting and layering ivory organza and lace. But am running out of time with less than 4 weeks to go. So more of a semi-homemade style hair accessory it is. Sandra Lee would be so proud.

I got a fuchsia colored flower at Target on clearance for only $4. Since I am not afraid of color and was excited to see it in one of our main colors I went for it. The photos aren't the greatest, sorry. So the question now is which semi-homemade version do I go with.

Version 1: The flower as is. It has an alligator clip on the back and is easy to wear.



Version 2: The flower with the addition of rhinestone button.



Version 3: The flower with rhinestone button and a turquoise feather. I didn't cut the feather yet so the photo wouldn't be the final version.



Version 4: The flower and the feather (not pictured).

So which should I do??

Amazing!! I love version 3, assuming it goes with your colors. Definitely keep the rhinestone button on there, it's perfect! You rock!

I'm thinking version 4 actually. I like the shape of the flower, and the rhinestone button flattens it. I'd do the flower and feather combo, but any way you do it will look spectacular! Love the blue and red combo.
