DIY: Flower Headband

This week I’ve decided to steer away from my usual wedding/formal hair posts and write up a DIY post. ┬áThe flower headband has been so popular and can be found in almost every store that sells teenage girl accessories. Lana┬áDel Rey has perfected the flower headband look, pairing the headband with big, soft waves. The headband also looks great with messy waves or a slightly messy updo.

After looking around online and in the shops for a flower headband, I thought it would be a fun idea to make the headband myself (rather than paying $20-$80)! It’s been quite some time since I’ve done anything remotely crafty so it took a little bit of time to figure out the best way to make the flower headband. Thankfully, my sister stepped in and saved me. The glue I used took some time to dry so 2 pairs of hands was quite helpful! I’ve included the materials required and a few easy steps for you to make your own flower headband.

Required:

1 x bunch of fake flowers

Glue (I used glue that can be used on plastic but a hot glue gun would probably have worked better)

Scissors

1 x plain plastic headband

Instructions:DIY Flower Headband

1. Select 5 flowers from your bunch and pull each flower off the stem.

2. Place your headband on a flat surface and lay your flowers out in the position you desire. Here I only used red roses, however you can use different colours and types of flowers to your liking. Try to space the flowers evenly – don’t space them out too much as you don’t want large gaps in your headband, you should also try not to put them too close together as the headband will become too crowded.

3. Glue the first flower at the top of the headband and use this as your starting point. Glueing this flower on first will help in making the flower placement more symmetric.

4. Once the glue has dried, continue to glue the remaining flowers onto the headband.

Now you have a customised flower headband at a fraction of the retail price!
