Cut a strip from the block of white FIMO soft and knead it softly. Then roll it into a long string and divide it into small, equally sized pieces using a sharp knife or a blade.
Next, roll the small pieces into small balls.
You can now take the 5-pronged red modelling tool and press it once into each of your little balls. This already gives a hint of a flower shape.
Use the ball tool to make sure the petals are nicely rounded.
Tip: Wear gloves to prevent the petals from sticking to your fingers.
You can now use the small ball on the tool to make a small depression in the middle of the flower.
Cut the flower stem with a sharp knife or a blade.
Now use the bead piercing needle to skewer your little flowers through the middle and make the hole that the wire will later be threaded through.
Now harden all the flowers in the oven for 30 minutes at 110° C / 230° F.
Once you‘ve let your flowers cool down, it‘s time to decorate your hair accessories! To do this, cut a piece of wire (20-30 cm) and double it in the middle. Thread the smallest bead first, then twist the wire.
Tip: Do not cut the long wire immediately. This makes it easier to handle and ensures that the wire does not bend where you do not want it to and break. Always twist the wire in one direction.
After attaching one or more beads, take a FIMO flower and slide it on. Thread flowers and beads alternately on the wire.
Putting a small bead in the middle of each FIMO flower also makes it look pretty.
Press all the beads firmly into the flowers and twist the wire quite tightly. This ensures that each flower is securely attached to the wire. The end result should look like a sprig of flowers and pearls.
Tip: Do not twist the wire too tightly to prevent it from breaking.
Now attach your bunch of flowers to the hairpin. To do this, twist the wire around the hairpin several times.
Your fashionable hair accessory is ready!
