fascinators and hair clips

I've been really into hair accessories lately. 
And to celebrate today's Royal wedding, I'm wearing a self made fascinator!
These are three fun hair clips I've crafted lately.
peach silk moire peony with orange beads in the center.  
this is really giant. it's probably about 6 inches in diameter, but it's such a pretty color.
 white fabric rosettes with crazy feather plumes.
I sort of cheated on this. the fabric flower cluster was a premade bunch I bought in the bridal section of the craft store. but they look handmade and have little pearl sprays shooting out.
 purple violet cluster with fascinator feathers!
I like the way the feathers poof on the violet fascinator clip the best.
Again, this is another premade flower bunch with some artful hot glueing.
In total these three projects probably cost me less than $10 total to make, so they we're really affordable for fun little accessories. I'm in total awe of the women at British weddings. I love the giant hats and fascinators.
Some favorites from this morning, all from the celebuzz royal wedding hats gallery:
Miriam Gonzalez, wife of deputy PM Nick Clegg 
 Princess Beatrice
Sophie, Countess of Wessex 
Tara Palmer-Tomkinson 
Zara Phillips
