Here's the tutorial I promised for the silk hair flowers (I found it here, of course on the Bee. I changed a few things but here's the gist of it)! (This one is quite a lot more simple than the Tsunami flowers). Ready? Go!
Here's what you need:
White or Colorful (fake) flowers of choice from the craft store
Needle and Thread
A button or bead for the center
Here's what to do: First take your faux blooms and basically take them apart. Pull the backing (usually plastic made to look like the leaves of the flower bloom) off and remove each individual set of petals.
|Here's the flower as it came from the store.|

|And here are all the individual petal sets.|
|I also experimented with different fabric and|
simply cut out some petals to add to the fabric flower.
Once your flower is glued/sewn together its time to whip out the button, needle and thread. Using a fairly sharp needle, start beneath your flower and run the thread up through the center and through the button holes to secure the button, and subsequently the flower.
|Try to pull it as tightly as you can while enabling yourself|
to make the passage back down through the flower.
Lastly, run the needle and thread a few times again through the very bottom layer of petals and the clip or barrette, until it feels quite secure. Then voila! You have a beautiful hair flower for special occasions or just-because! And how easy is that?

It's my bridal hair flower trial :)
