Silk-Flower Hair Bands

Martha Stewart Weddings, January Winter 2002

Silk flowers never wilt or fade, which makes them a fitting memento of your wedding. Share them with your bridesmaids by making these pretty hair bands. Begin with a full-bodied silk flower, such as camellias, and attach a metal-free hair elastic with a twist of the flower's wire stem. Clip off any excess wire. Cover the wire by sewing a bit of 1-inch wide ribbon, ends folded under, to the base of the blossom using a few stitches.

    instead of putting them on the hair ties I put them on metal barretts and added a little bit of glitter to make them sparkle

    I really wish we could zoom in on the pictures? I'm not quite understanding the directions.
