I realised over my crafting holiday that for some reason I’ve amassed a lot of coloured wire in my stash. No freaking clue how it got there but I figured if it’s there I might as well use it!
So the first thing I made was a little flower hair clip. It’s pretty crazy looking but I really like it.
- Wire in various colours
- Bobby pin
I made a bunch of them like this…
Done! Next the red section. I wrapped the red wire around my fingers…
Then used some pliers to twist the ends together.
It ended up like a tear drop shape.
I flared the end loops out to form petals.
After making a second one I placed them on top of each other with the twisted ends in the middle.
To make the flower a bit fuller I wrapped the wire around my fingers again and twisted in the middle.
I flared it out and then placed it on top of the first red parts. I tied them all together with more wire and then added the yellow part in the middle.
Everything was held together with wire and then I inserted the bobbypin and wrapped it in with more wire.
You could make so many variations on this style.
I could really picture a gigantic version of this perched on top of a big bun, pinup style!
Now to think of what to make with the rest of the wire!
