Floral Headband: DIY

For a while now I have been wanting a floral headband...but never could find the right one. Then, yesterday, my mom brought me a box of flowers that she bought at a garage sale for two dollars. The first thing that popped into my mind was to make a floral headband. It was actually quite easy. Also, I was rather impressed with the results. It is such a fun accessory.

All you need is a headband(you can use a thick one, but I prefer thin) and bunches of flowers. I did one with small flowers and one with big. I only used about three bunches of the bigger flowers, but almost double that with the smaller ones.

When everything is ready, simply wrap the wire stem around the headband. Starting at the top and working your way down on both sides.As a tip, make sure that the ends are on top of the headband and tucked under the flowers, otherwise wearing the headband will become quite painful. Using glue is optional, I did not find it necessary.

Observe your work and enjoy the finished product!
