Learn how to make a beautiful DIY Floral Hair Comb for your wedding day!
When I put together wedding proposals these days they are nothing like what they used to be. Gone are the days of a few centrepieces and bridal party bouquets! Tablescapes are now intricate designs and each wedding comes with its own unique floral art installation. Honestly it has made the job so much more fun and creative. Weddings are also filled with special small detail items too. I love to make flowers for the seating chart, flowers for the back of the chairs, flowers for the cake, and of course, flowers to wear. While boutonnieres and corsages have always been staples, hairpieces are now making an appearance at most of my weddings. I totally love them. With the right supplies making doing a DIY floral hair comb is not difficult at all.
If you are wearing your hair up, a backcomb is one of the best ways to add flowers to your hair. It is secure and acts as a great base on which to add your flowers. However, if you are having your hair done by stylist I always suggest getting their advice on what would make the most sense for your hair style. Sometimes loose blooms or a floral crown suit what they are doing best. However, 9/10 times I am asked to make a floral crown to compliment a hair style. They are secure and provide the perfect sized area to add flowers for your hair.
Floral glue is a really key supply here. Honestly, this stuff is magic. If you’re a florist who has yet to discover the magic of flower glue I encourage you to go buy a tube ASAP. It adheres to flowers so well and they aren’t going anywhere once glued. Promise! To get the best stick-power, I put a small blob of glue (the size of a loonie) onto a cardboard scrap and allow it to get a tiny bit tacky before using it. I like to use the stem of a flower as a dabbing stick to carry the glue from the cardboard to the surface that I want to glue on (either the flower or the backcomb…or both!).
