A butterfly trio headdress

Recently I have created a number of butterflies in silk and lace; in fact, too many. To justify it I can say that I was just fulfilling a constant stream of orders for these beautiful creatures. And here is the last piece: a butterfly trio headdress in turquoise and mint hues

Turquoise butterfly headband

This butterfly headband will perfectly complement a summer outfit in similar hues. It is ideal for a turquoise-themed wedding too, either to be worn by a bride or bridesmaids.
I used satin, organza, pongee (all pure silk) and floral lace which I painted by hand as well as beads and seed beads in complementing colours. The thin  metallic headband is wrapped with a strip of pure hand painted silk.

This bright piece of headwear is available from my Etsy shop.

But it is not my first triple butterfly headband. Previously I made a similar headdress in shades of purple

and a white lace butterfly wedding headband

If you are willing to try and make a similar butterfly headband yourself you might want to purchase my .pdf tutorial on a lace butterfly made WITHOUT any special tools which is available from my Etsy shop. With more than 50 pictures explaining in detail the whole process of creating your own designer accessory, this 47 page .pdf ebookwill teach you how to create a delicate lace butterfly to be used in accessories, as wedding decorations, in millinery and much more. I have included the pattern too.

Mint and turquoise butterfly headband

It is time to present one of my last creations here which I am rather proud about. First, I like the colours, very summery brights and at the same time cooling mint and turquoise shades. Second,  virtually nobody is indifferent to butterflies! And we have 3 mounted onto this headband, all of them in different colours, textures and shapes. I have used lace, 3 kinds of silk fabrics (satin, pongee, organza), seed beads in a lovely mix of colours and, of course, my paints for silk. What not to love about them? Me thinks it is an ideal hair accessory to wear with a dress in similar colours. It would look elegant at a wedding party, prom or in fact for any occasion when you want to add a splash of colour 🙂

The mint and turquoise butterfly headband is a unnique creation of myself.
