Kanzashi Fun

Ever since I discovered the existence of Kanzashi flowers a couple months ago, it's been on the top of my To Do list to learn to make them.

And this week, I attempted my first ones! I have to say that it was so fun!

I wanted to make one like this - leave it to me to try the hard ones first.

Anyway, I wanted a classy pin to jazz up my black dress for my husband's company Christmas party. I  haven't decided what I'm going to use for the center yet. I used this old button as a stand in for the pictures.

What do you think? Not too bad, eh?

These are beautiful! I need you to make me some! Not sure how I would wear them, but they are too beautiful to pass up!

Well, they can be worn as anything! Pins, hair clips, hairpins, hair combs, head bands - the possibilities are endless!

I had to buy a japanese style kanzashi hair clip for my geisha costume last year. It was so pretty! I need to learn how to make these, too.
