Well, a few weeks ago a friend asked me to create a fun fascinator, you-all know what they are? just a piece of whimsy to wear on your head instead of a hat. Well, this is what I came up with just using stuff I had on hand. The photos are lousy but it was pretty cute if I say so myself!
I took a length of tulle, gathered it and anchored it to a hair comb. Then  I made some simple flowers (you could use purchased ones) and stained them with watercolour paints to blend in. The final touch was an origami crane using matching paper and some feathers all glued together with hot glue ( drizzled a bit over the flowers to give a bit of sparkle) and voila!
I'm sure the goddess Artemis never wore a fascinator but she kindly offered to model it for me. (Doesn't look happy though does she?)
