Dowton Abbey’s back, for the last time. Booo. I was so sad, I felt inspired to create some 20s inspired head ornaments 🙂 (Would you believe I only started watching Downton last summer??!)


What you need to be the next Lady Mary:

– elastic cord

– rhinestone chain

– 2 rhinestone endings

– pliers

Step 1:

Cut 15 cm of elastic cord and 15 cm of rhinestone chain.

Place the ends of the rhinestone chain into the brackets then use your pliers to tighten and hold them in place

Step 2:

Fold the elastic in half then insert through 1 bracket and make a knot (by inserting the ends of the cord through the loop at the other end of the cord)

Step 3:

Insert the 2 ends (of the cord) through the other bracket and knot again. Try to knot as close to the ends as possible but if not, cut off may excess elastic. For extra security, apply a dab of glue to the ends.

All set for your next flappers ball 🙂
