Wedding Rose Nails…

So I attended my cousins wedding reception at the weekend. I went to the hassle of making my own fascinator and necklace (as if I could really call it ‘hassle’ – I love crafting things!) I decided doves and roses were pretty wedding related! As well as pearls and gems added in for extra bling.


The Fascinator – I bought the dove picks, the pearl picks, feathers, paper roses, the actual fascinator base, etc from HobbyCraft. But I arranged it and put it together myself! It also took a lot of glue and some felting wool for padding out the back so you couldn’t see the pick sticks poking through. And a lot of patience because everything got a bit gluey/sticky and bits of feather ended up everywhere as they were too wild and long to begin with. Aren’t the doves so cute!

The Necklace – I made every single rose (bar two – my mum made the huge one, and my brother made one as he wanted to try it out), meaning I personally hand-made 70 roses. It was honestly so time consuming. They are made from various colours/blends of fimo clay as I love working with it because it doesn’t really dry out in your hands or set until you bake it. I glue-gunned them onto a piece of felt, added another dove and some pearls/gems to link in with my fascinator and then added the chain. I am most certainly going to wear it again, I think it’s pretty.

The Nails – So yet again, to link in with my theme I decided roses and gems. I’ve not really one for painting flowers on my nails, and I’ve never painted this style of rose before. I’m not 100% sure what I make of them. Too messy, too much? The jury is still out.

Myself – I always feel a bit embarrassed posting photos of myself, which is why I’ve only done it maybe twice… But I wanted to show you the whole thing. I was wearing a black, lace dress. I don’t actually wear any face make-up ever, like foundation or anything as I find it kinda ikky, but I do like wearing eye make-up. I added gems, you guessed it, to link them in with my theme!
