With ladies’ day fast approaching it’s all eyes on the hats. Try our simple guide to making your own fascinator to match your outfit!

It’s quite simple to make a fascinator to coordinate with your dress. You just need a mix of the following:

Hair comb (match to either your hair colour, or the colours in the fascinator)
Needle and thread
Clear drying craft glue

* Ribbon
* Netting
* Lace
* Silk flowers
* Feathers
* Brooch
* Earrings
* Beads
* Gems
* Pendants
* Sequins

Start by wrapping some ribbon around the head of the comb, through the teeth to create a base. Then add your other pieces by stitching or gluing them in place as securely as possible. Keep checking the placement on your head to get the angles right.
