So festival season has already begun! I love festivals!! So I thought I would put together my top 5 Handmade Must-Have Festival Accessories from the Curiosity Haus Shop.
A few weeks ago I braved the rain and went along to Download festival. Download is not really a hot spot for craft spotting, but the music was great! Black Sabbath headlining Sunday Night was a top highlight for me. They have always been one of my favourite bands; as anyone who ever visited the very first Curiosity Haus Website might remember! (you may want to turn down your volume if you are in a public place!)
Curiosity Haus Festival Top Tips:
1. Make it easy for someone to find you – wear a flower in your hat!
It is easy to get lost in the crowds get you friends to wear something noticeable so you can spot each other across the crowds! Try attaching a beautiful handmade brooch to your hat, your hair band, or your bag. I recommend these round felt button brooches by fuzz bucket.
2. Pocket Mirror
A compact mirror is a top necessity – don’t forget it or you’ll regret it! This cool pocket mirror is perfect for popping in your bag and also makes a great yet cheap handmade gift under £5!
3. Hair Clips
WInd and rain is almost guaranteed at british festivals, but you can hide away messy hair and tame your mane with these pretty music themed handmade hair accessories.
4. Accessorise – Stand out from the crowd!
We have lots of unusual fashion accessories- try some quirky earrings or a feature necklace like these amazing recycled paint brush handmade necklaces by Zinc White.
5. Save the Cows!
Show your respect to those poor cows who have been made homeless for the week to accommodate your festival fun by wearing this amazing piece of quirky jewellery! Could we start a campaign to help those homeless cows? Should we make these amazing leather brooches the official pin? Could we?
Guaranteed to get you some star attention! Handmade Leather cow brooch by Alison Peacock Leather Artist.
You can see all of our amazing handmade accessories in the Curiosity Haus online craft shop, selling a range of handcrafted jewellery and accessories from british designers.
Enjoy your festivals responsibly and spare a thought for the cows! ;)
