en Limba Engleză Paperback – 11 Oct 2012
Give your outfit a head start with a stylish and individual hand-made hair accessory. This inspiring new title shows you how to make 20 stunning items, with clear step-by-step photography and instructions that guide you through the process with ease. Dramatic or demure, these crowning glories can then jazz up a casual ensemble or top off a special outfit, and they make the perfect gifts for friends and family. From a seaside headdress to a vintage button hairslide the projects use mainly found objects such as vintage beads, buttons, fabric and even pine cones and Lego to create stunning hair accessories by plaiting, gluing and wirework. Starting with an easy-to-follow techniques section, this journey through the world of creating will prepare you for what’s to come. Exploring a range of materials such as lace, twigs, shells, sweet wrappers and chains, you’ll soon be coming up with ideas to design your own headdresses. Hair Accessories is packed with inspiration and is designed to cater for all skill levels, especially the novice crafter and those on a budget. Each project offers innovative ideas for using different materials and techniques.
