DIY: Floral Hair Combs

This project came about on Friday night, when I was looking for something to wear with my Easter dress. I knew that I wanted something involving flowers, and I remembered seeing some combs like this online, but wouldn't have time to order them for Sunday. So I went to the store and bought supplies for this DIY.
This project is super easy and you should have most of the supplies in your house. The supplies that you don't have should cost you about three dollars. Which means that you can have a great accessory for about three dollars and twenty minutes of your time.

For this project you will need:
-Two hair combs...these cost me a dollar
-Artificial flowers...these are baby's breath. You can spring for better
flowers, but on the cheap these cost me $2.19
-a glue gun

Basically all that you need to do is cut the flowers right at the stem, and glue them however you like on the comb. I found that by gluing the flowers all along the front, on the back, and then some on top gave it a full look. However, you can experiment with the placement to get it exactly how you want it. That's basically it. I ended up making two with my flowers. It was super easy and I got so many compliments on them when I wore them. I like to wear mine with milkmaid braids and tuck them each between the braids.

I hope that you enjoy your new floral hair combs, I know I have! I would love to see your finished hair combs if you do them! Send your photos of your finished product my way!

Have a great day and thanks so much for reading!
