Melbourne’s Spring Carnival is galloping toward us with Derby Day on October 31st!
I adore The Races for fashionable reasons (American readers picture a week-long Kentucky Derby with Champagne instead of Mint Juleps) and look forward to getting dressed up for the racecourse (we don’t call it ‘the track’ here, makes us feel more civilized).
What you need
- A base and headband or clip combo
- Fake Flowers
- Glue Gun
|Cut the crap- it will give you a flatter base to work with.|
|Why hello, Craft Nerd.|
|Thought I was finished at this point, but it was begging for some black feathers.|
Lesson Learned For Next time: I would probably try and position the little base differently and buy a sturdier headband- so maybe I’ll try to make one myself. Also I might play around a little with different configurations of flowers- I made it work with this one but I could have done things a little differently.
|The final result|
The total cost of materials used was easily less than 40.00 and considering the long odds with my novice skill set I’m more than pleased with the standings (just a few more racing puns then I’ll stop, promise).
