I would love some help finding a variety of NATURAL-looking flower clips, pins etc (like daisies, lilies, etc.), because it seems that all I find have rhinestones, "water" droplets, or glitter on them." Well, if you're a truly crafty sort, you can snag some plain silver or clear clips at a beauty supply store, some florist's wire, glue, and your fave realistic silk flowers at a high-end craft store, and go to town. (Here's a good DIY tutorial.) But, if you're like us, and your craft attempts resemble those of your 3 year-old niece, here are some premade alternatives:
5 - ASOS Orchid Flower Hair Clip/Brooch ($9)
8 - Orchid Branch Comb ($18 each, in white or green)
