Next entry for our DIY Contest is from Caroline, who sent this project all the way from Ireland! If you’re planning a rock ‘n roll wedding, today is your lucky day. Caroline used a raven’s skull, amongst other vintage pieces to create a headband to wear at her brother’s wedding.

From Caroline:
I made this headpiece to wear to my brothers wedding in Tuscany, Italy. I had bought a really pretty vintage dress, very demure and ladylike and i wanted to give it a bit of a funky edge. So I thought, what’s edgier than a skull?

What you’ll need:

– rhinestone applique
– vintage flowers
– vintage brooch
– hair comb
– a ravens skull (optional, taxidermy skull found at antique shop)

DIY Vintage Hair Comb skull rock 'n roll wedding

Instructions:

I sewed the applique to the comb, then the skull on to the applique. I arranged the flowers around and glued them into place and finally added the little brooch to one of the flowers. Quick and simple!

  • VERY funky! I’d be too tempted to draw a silly face on the skull though…

  • A very edgy and modern idea! Something totally different for a change. Would have worked well with that vintage dress I think.

  • Wow – I love this comb. I’d like to see the rest of the collection darling!
