Fashion Fix: Festival Wellies 2: Flower...?

I refuse to write 'Flower Power' as that sums up cheap and tacky images for cliched psychedelic hippy fancy dress costumes. Big clusters of oversized flowers have graced headdresses for the past few summers now so why not have them spilling out around the tops of your wellies.

There is a bit more of a method to these...

You will need:
  • A pair of wellies
  • assorted brightly coloured fake flowers
  • hole borer
  • contact adhesive
  • Felt

How to do it:
  1. Pull your flowers off their stems, this will leave you with a small nib at the back of the flower,
  2. Bore a hole in your welly. Apply contact adhesive to the back of the flower and the area on the welly surrounding the hole. Leave to go tacky
  3. Once ready, push flower nib through welly hole
  4. press together until contact adhesive fixes. 
  5. Continue to add flowers.
  6. Glue small squares of felt to the inside of the welly over the flower nibs to stop irritation.
