Put your hair up and Art!

Spark some Kreativity Saturday is here once again! As May had an extra week here's a wearable quickie! Hope you like it. 


The fun with the mixed media kit from the Kraaft Shaak continues. It comes with a great assortment of vintage pages. I used a few of those pages to create a fun hair accessory that was inspired by a pin that I saw from a friend on Pinterest.

I started with some of the text papers, which I cut into strips. No worries about getting straight strips; it won't matter.
I then used some inktense pencils to add some color. I went with pink and yellow. I colored the strips half yellow, half pink. I then cut a scallop all along the strips. 
They were looking a bit flat so I crinkled them up for texture. 
I then cut out a "donut" shape out of some grudge board. I've had this in my stash for a while and not sure what it's intended for, but I liked that it's thick and flexible. 
With my pieces all ready, I glued the page strips onto the circle base. I added a few layers. 
I then turned my attention to creating a pick. For this, I created a paper straw by rolling up one of the strips I had cut up. 
With my pick ready, I embellished it with some more of my scallops to create a flower on one end of my stick.
And just like that, my wearable is born! A few layers of clear glue or mod podge help provide durability. 
A few views of this in action. 
It's a fun way to hold your hair up. My hair is too short for a bun but I think it would look cool on one.
Hope you enjoy this quick craft and that it inspires you to create something you can wear.

  8. You saw this where? I have never seen anything like it. What an adorable idea! My daughter has hair down to her waist, but she won't let me play with it. Can you imagine. How cruel is that? This would be so cute for her.
