In honor of return of Heat Eat Review after a month of absence, I made this necklace out of the black plastic tray from frozen dinners. the plastic is quite sturdy yet it cuts easily with a sharp scissor, you can cut any shape you want of course. I will post more things made from frozen dinner trays.
I really like the idea of multiple dangles hanging from a flower like the one on the left. when I saw this iron-on patch (bottom left) from Hobby Lobby I knew I could make it into a hair clip. I removed the lace because I think they are distracting and glued a clip on the bottom. I also played with the idea of clipping it on to a record and wear the record as a 50's looking hat.
I also thought about attaching a tiny veil. Russian netting (some call it French netting or Swiss netting, I'm not sure which is correct) are available to purchase online, but I decided to recycle and use the plastic netting bag that came with a whole spiral cut ham.
I think I'm becoming a crazy hat lady. I bought a corset today and it comes with a pair of bra pads. I don't need the pads since the bra cups are already too small for me, so I made them into a little headpiece that matches the corset. First I glued black ribbons around the edge, then I covered the whole thing with lace. Finally I decorated it with a ostrich feather and a rose.
I used the other pad for the gold headpiece I made the other day. I wish I didn't do such a sloppy job since you can see the glue.
I really like the idea of recycling something into something new. Here I used a President brie cheese box to make a pillbox hat. It is very simple to make. All I did was paint the box blue with acrylic paint and glue a flower and a veil of matching color.
You will need: two feet of ribbon (1/2'' or wider), stapler, glue, a hair clip or headband.
1. Make a loop with one end of the ribbon.
2. Make two loops on either side of the first loop.
3. Continue until you reach the end of the ribbon.
4. Staple the bow together.
5. Glue on a hair clip or a headband.
