Hairpin with flower

It was then that for the first time, the straight hair of a woman and girl began to be laid in intricate and fancy hairstyles, decorating them with kanzashi flowers. Today, this style of jewelry is widely used far beyond China. This kind of decoration has reached our region. Kanzashi flowers are used not only to decorate hairstyles, but also to give a highlight to shoes, clothes, handbags, jewelry and other accessories. Very beautiful and original decorations have become real friends of modern fashionistas. In addition, each flower in this style is original and unique, as it is made by hand. Materials for manufacturing. In this master class we will show how to make a beautiful hair clip with a beautiful tricolor flower.

Red and black ribbons - wide, 5 centimeters.A white one and a half centimeters wide. We will also need a pistol with a glue rod, scissors, an ordinary lighter, a small clasp, on which we will fasten our flower and bead or, in our case, a red plastic flower.
