Flower Love

My little sister Mary, who is almost 13, makes headbands, bows, and clips for her hair out of cut material from old shirts and cheap fake flowers from the store... and they are amazing!! She is already a beauty/fashion guru in the making. I feel so inspired by her to be more creative with styling my hair, while saving a bit of money :)

So here are some photos of her clips and headbands:

Flower Love was inspired by a photo we saw on Pinterest*. She immediately wanted to recreate the look with a fishtail braid when we saw it because she just bought some daisies that looked quite similar. Here's me casually sitting in some grass modeling her work...

(Secret: I was actually wearing boxer shorts underneath this dress and a car filled with attractive guys  drove by... I was kind of maybe a bit mortified because when standing you could definitely see the boxers. Needless to say, we ran and hid).

Flower Power are two of her flower headbands that, in my opinion, are just as adorable and wearable as the expensive flower headbands you might find at Urban Outfitters or Topshop. She just used a thick piece of ribbon, a few fake flowers (that were literally 97c at the store for a whole slew of them), and glue! How clever :)



So, what do you think?? My sister is precious and talented, am I right?? 
I hope you enjoyed :)

  1. I like the braid. Sometimes when I wear a ponytail or bun I like to tuck in a flower as a nice accent.

  8. Love the braid but the big ones aren't really my cup of tea. I guess I'm just not that a big a fan of headbands ^^
