    Hi! I found a kit on Etsy that included everything, the hair clip, string, the netting, the needle, and instructions. It was about $15 and you could choose any color. My first attempt wasn’t good because I rushed through it, but my second attempt was much better!

    Chicat,  I’ve been wondering the same thing!  I’m torn between trying to DIY or just buying one from someone on Etsy and be done with it.

    I have a few people on Etsy saved in case.  Let me know what you decide!

    I made mine.  Two pieces of advice:  if you have curly hair (not laying flat like in the pic you posted, but fuller) you need to know that it will probably take more effort to get it to fit you, or you’ll look like you’re wearing a net bucket on your head.  Second, you won’t find russian netting at the regular chain fabric store—the key is to search for places, on line or brick-and-mortar, that sell millinery (hat-making) supplies.  Good luck!

    i’m sure your already done with this.. but i wanted to comment just in case. if you look at her picture, its not a dip at all. it’s tricking you ;). what it looks like to me is that shes taken the net and made two leaves for her sweet flower. so she’s taken two pieces of the net and gathered them under her flower and they overlap to make that sweet dip!
