aurelia style.

My friend Aurelia of Aurelia Style hosted her first crafty workshop last week and I had to get in on all the fun! Headdresses for all!

Aurelia had sample headdresses out for inspiration. Each one had a story. It got me thinking that I should have been thinking about a theme for my piece. Ha! Instead, I perused the bounty of supplies for inspiration.

There were beads, flowers, buttons, tulle, felt, feathers, chain, …so many colorful supplies! I decided on neutrals and flowers…lots of them!

Aurelia shared her pro tips for composing a headdress, like how to create height and volume, and helped us whenever our projects didn’t ‘look right.’ Here’s my finished piece!

What I love about workshops is the chance to explore a new craft and use materials I would have never thought to buy or put together. Lace, beads, flowers, and feathers? Yes! Also, there’s a foam visor under there holding the structure together! Genius!

Here’s the headdress crew in all our headdress glory. Thanks, Aurelia, for a relaxing and crafty workshop! Now, can someone throw a party so I can wear my gravity defying piece? Please and thank you.

Where should I sport my headdress? Share your crazy thoughts below.ย
