First up is Nicola from the Monsters Fun House blog. She has created a pretty, pastel, on-trend floral headband – ideal for the more laid-back summer wedding. It’s simple to make, so ideal for us to make our own version, see how Nicola managed to make it here. Writer and designer Rachel from the Stressed Rach blog decided to make something completely different to anything we’ve seen so far, and opted for a bridal bouquet. We absolutely love the little decorative touches sprinkled all around it!
Creator of Oh Gosh blog and snowboarding enthusiast Emma, submitted her design to us last week. She decided to create a fancy floral fascinator for her accessory, ensuring that she made full use of the sparkles provided! Emma’s step-by-step guide is easy to follow, so anyone can attempt to make one too!The lovely Michelle from family blog Shell Louise, decided to create a stunning floral headband – suitable for both adults and children, as you can see from the lovely model’s photo! We love how versatile the accessory is and we’d even wear it on a summer’s day.
Lisa, a lifestyle blogger for Matilde Heart Manech and eternal optimist, also took a different approach and made a boutonniere for weddings. Her accessory is super simple, and very elegant- the perfect combination for a summer ceremony. Caroline from the Caroline Makes blog continued the hair accessory theme and crafted a floral and super elaborate headband. She used a variety of the items from our hamper and likes it so much that she’s even planning on wearing it to a friend’s wedding!
Emma from top baking and crafting blog, Desserts and Decoupage made a duo of accessories to compliment each other – a floral corsage bracelet and matching buttonhole. Both items are simple and effective and add just a touch of 1920’s glamour. Stephanie Pomfrett from self-titled blog about a northerner living down south, has produced a glitzy headband using Carey Mulligan in the Great Gatsby as her inspiration.
Our final stunning entry comes courtesy of Michelle from the Purple Pumpkin blog, who chose to craft a gorgeous and dainty wrist corsage. She even filmed herself making it to make it super easy for all of us to make one ourselves.
We can’t wait to look through all of the wonderful entries in detail and choose a winner. We at Country Baskets would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that took part and may the best crafter win!
