  • I BOUGHT A TOP HAT -£1.59 AS I WANTED MY PECAE TO HAVE HEIGHT.

  • I BROUGHT FELT BALLS X2 TO ADD TO MY TOP HAT INITITALLY I GLUED THEM ON WITH A GLUE GUN AND THIS STUCK BUT WAS JUST NOT STABLE ENOUGH. I FIXED THIS BY SLICING THE BOTTOM OFF SO IT HAD A FLAT BASE AND STUCK AROUND 20 PINS IN THE THE HAT THROUGH TO THE FEKT SO IT HAD A STRONG BASE. FOR THE SECOND ONE I DID A CURVE AROUND IT AND PUT GARDENING WIRE THROUGH IT SO IT STAYED SECURELY TO THE FIRST BALL.
  • NOW I HAD MY BASE I USED SQUARE FELT AND STUCK IT IN OBLONG SHAPES AROUND THE HAT.

  • I WITH A BIT OF FORCE CHECKED TO SEE HOW TIGHTLY MY FANS WOULD FOLD. DUE TO A GOLD METAL CLIP ON THE BOTTOM THIS STAYED IN PERFECTLY. FANS X10 £20. I BROUGHT TEN AS I WANTED TO ADD THEM TO MY DRESS BUT DECIDED NOT TO AND ENDED UP USING FOUR.

  • I NEXT USED ROSES AND ALL KINDS OF DIFFERENT FLOWERS FROM THE POUND SHOP AND LAVENDERS THIS WAS QUITE EXPENSIVE AT £1 EACH I BOUGHT AROUDN 20 OF THESE AND AROUND 4 PACKS OF ROSES FROM LAVENDERS AT AROUND £ 3 EACH.IMG_7771.JPG
  • I SPRAYED THEM GOLD WITH OASIS FLORAL SPRAY COLOUR IN BRILLIANT GOLD THIS LOOKED GOOD BUT WAS STILL LOOKING A BIT FLAT SO I USED A METALLIC MORE SHINY SPRAY SO MY PEICE LOOKED 3 DIMENSIONAL AND HAD DIFFERENT TONES TO IT.
