Do It Yourself Hair Combs

Do It Yourself, or DIY, wedding projects allow you to create your own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way you can imagine on your special day, for a shower, a party or whenever. All you need are some basic items and a little creativity.

These Do It Yourself Hair Combs are perfect for use as a bridesmaid’s gift and would even be lovely on your flower girls. To create these fleurettes, you’ll need a basic knowledge of sewing and a little patience. It’s a fun project though, and whomever receives these will love the thought you put into making them.

1. Scrap Fabric
2. Double sided ribbon
3. Needle & thread
4. Comb or clip
5. Scissors

1. Cut 5 strips of fabric (1″ wide, graduating lengths).

2. Hand-stitch fabric strip length-wise (at 1/2 inch intervals).
3. Hold fabric at one end and cinch, turning it into a circle.
4. Stitch opposite ends together & tie a double knot to keep circle intact.
Be sure to Repeat these steps with 3 more strips of fabric.

Take last remaining strip and tie it into a knot.

Stack the 4 fabric circles (biggest circle on bottom to smallest circle on top).
Feed knot into fabric circles, so only the knot shows when looking at the fleurette.
Stitch (or hot glue) fleurette onto double sided ribbon.
Attach the double sided ribbon onto a comb or clip (stitch or hot glue).

    I’m a Nashville wedding photographer who recently got engaged! As many weddings as I’ve seen I never see cute bridesmaids dresses to fit the DIY/indie style dresses I would love it if you guys would post cute, unique, inexspensive shops, stores, or even designers you recommend! Love what you guys do :)
