Fascinating facinator….

At Simon Says this week the theme is hats. I decided to take an old hair band and create a variation on a hat – a fascinator. These are hair accessories, usually clips or pins with feathers, flowers, or lace, and are very popular at the moment. They have actually been around since the 18th century, when large feathered and beaded hair accessories were the height of fashion. Funnily enough, a “fascinator” initially meant a lacy, fancy head covering for ladies to wear with their evening clothes. Ok, education over, here is my take on Simon Says hat theme….I used grunge paper, a old hair band covered in ribbon, pearl paint dabber, flowers, old paper distress ink, feathers….

I am quite happy with the result, especially since it started off like this….

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend folk!!
