Inspired by a wedding shower game

It was a big day on Sunday. I was going to my first ever wedding shower. I had heard many stories, not all good and I was feeling a bit nervous about it.

The shower turned out to be a positive surprise. It turned out that everybody was really nice and welcoming, the gifts the bride received were all so personal and amazing and even the games I had been dreading were fun. The old “make a wedding gown out of toilet paper” was so much fun. I have to say that we had a bit of an advantage having lots of creative people on our team and the gown ended up looking pretty good. As part of the gown I had created a large flower head-piece a la Carrie Bradshaw, which everybody commented on and it inspired me to try it out with fabric that night. I started with an old polka dot scarf and recycled the material. I made the flower smaller and attached it to a headband I already had and voila I had something way more interesting than my old headband. Last night I took some feathers off a headband that had broken and made a new one out of it. I am so excited and I am going to try out some more fun flowers and maybe incorporate some feathers and make some more head pieces, so make sure to check back.

Recycle. Reuse. Recreate.

Ciao
