To purchase head pieces for the Spring Racing Carnival, year in, year out, gets very expensive and we tend to only wear them once and then buy a whole new outfit the following year. I have some very cool solutions to saving your pretty pennies this year!
DIY Gold Leaf Headpiece
This one is perfect for those of you who like to be understated and you like your hair down, for that special occasion.
Metal headband’s are only $5 here.
Black Tulle Headpiece
Needing something with a bit more coverage? This DIY black tulle headpiece made from Spotlight’s millinery materials avauilable, is all class. Especially if you’re wanting to spruce up a black dress, you already own.
And the finished product? You can tighten the tulle if you’d like a more structured look. I like it loose so you have some room underneath. The black headband for $5 is available here.
Are you wanting to wear a more feminine and delicate headpiece? Then this Glitter Crown is for you! You could team with a very simple dress in a bold colour. Make sure the accessories are kept to a minimum because this one’s quite busy and fun!
You could fill this more, with additional stems of flowers.
Gold Flower Crown
What a statement. This is a very popular trend this year, the flower crown. Put your spray paint powers to use and glue them on to a head band. It’s as easy as that! Don’t get locked into using the gold spray paint. Try white or a bright colour for Cup Day.
