I love making headpieces and fascinators.
In the past, I made them with paper flowers and peacock feathers. You can see my other headpieces in this blog post.
I received an enquiry if I can make one for the Derby race in Melbourne this year, but she was concerned about the weather if my fascinator is made in paper. I asked her to send the photo of her dress and it was black with sheer kind of fabric and so gorgeous. She said that the theme is black and white.
I start looking for the inspiration for fascinators. I have quite good collection of my headpiece inspiration in my Pinterest boards. https://au.pinterest.com/sumiconet/headpieces/
When I was looking at some of the fascinators, I thought that I could use “Place Mats” for my fascinator. I went to the Spotlight and Freedom and I got a couple of luncheon mats. I also bought some ribbons and embellishment from Spotlight wedding craft section.
I just glue them together with a glue gun.
I love the results and I will make some more with different luncheon mats.
I think that those decorative fascinators can make look dresses more like high-end fashion. I am looking forward to shooting someone with this fascinator.
