Metal or plastic hair comb?

You can take a coordinating satin ribbon and "wrapp" it around the top part of the comb (the side that doesn't have the teeth), they you can blue your flowers to a felt pad, and glue (or sew) the whole thing to the satin.


Does this make sense?

Make pieces, assemble and affix them to anything that you find sturdy enough to hold your design/ keep it stable... but not too much wider than the grip part (smooth side) of the comb. Figure out where you want it positioned on your comb and stitch it on with your strongest thread/ floss; going between the teeth of the comb (like wrapping a tutu waistband, if that helps) and taking up a little stitch in the back of your design with each wrap. Then, use a piece of matching/ coordinating material (satin, felt, ribbon, knit...whatever's closest to your design) and hot glue the FIRE out of it to the backside of the material you attached your flowers, feathers, etc., to -this should be about the same size as what your things are attached to; SO- you should be able to cover the back of the grip part of the comb with it, thus hiding your stitching.

HTH!!! MK

It seems most every place that sells hair accaessories around here sells combs.... at least the plastic ones. CVS, Wal-mart, Dollar General and family dollar. BUT, we aren't really even a one horse town.
