Henettes : Part 1

The wonderful Queen of Hearts Tea Party Chic

For the next installment of the Queen of Hearts hen weekend makings we have the Henette headwear and brooches. My challenge was to make about 30 headbands/brooches on a small budget, and not my usual intricate time consuming manner. Following the Wonderland Queen of Hearts and Tea Party theme as a point of inspiration I thought a simple combination of graphical pattern playing cards would make for super cute headwear. Being the henettes they all had to be heart cards and I went for an oversized heart shape which framed the cards perfectly and decorated them with a selection of she draws tea party themed buttons. They were really simple to make, within budget and most importantly lasted the test of disco dancing! Phew! Part 2, I'll blog how I made them.
