DIY Floral Headband

100_4906 edited geskryf

Inspired by some the floral headgear worn at the summer music festivals, I decided to share my easy to achieve floral headband. It has become somewhat predictable to wear a floral crown at a festival, but it still makes a pretty picture. This could also be great for weddings or just because…

What you’ll need:

  • Paper craft roses, about 10
  • Plain, flat Alice band
  • Scissors
  • 1 m Thin Sateen Ribbon, in a matching colour
  • Clear Drying Glue, such as Bostik

What to do:

  1. Starting at the center of the band, wrap the each flower’s wire around the band as tightly as possible. Trim any excess wire not necessary to keep the flower in place.
  2. When done wrapping the flowers, make sure that they are evenly spaced and that each flower is facing upright.
  3. Place a little glue under each flower head and gently press the flower onto the band. Let dry.
  4. Starting at one end of the band, tightly wrap the ribbon around it taking care to cover all the wire and leaving gaps for the flowers.
  5. Glue each end of the ribbon on to the band and leave to dry.
  6. Check that there are no exposed wires from the roses before wearing.

P.S. Don’t worry about the wire from the flowers as it is super flexible and covered so it won’t hurt.
