With the resurgence of boho and floral crowns and hippie chic all up in my inbox lately, I decided to make a DIY floral crown (I’ll personally never wear) and show you how I did it.
Grab yourself some scissors.
Really any kind will do. So long as they actually cut through thin plastic. No safety scissors. We’re not about precaution here.
Pick a stem with flowers you’re down with.
I got my pick from Michael’s for five bucks. Can’t beat it. You probably could, but that’s the best I could do.
Trim all of the flowers off that thing.
Snip, snip, snip. Note: cut the little stem trunks off the ends too. I didn’t show that I ended up doing that. You should though or the rest of this will make no sense if you’re not bright enough to piece that together. No offense.
Grab a headband and some floral tape.
It seems like an unlikely coupling, but floral crown. Floral tape. It all made sense to me at the time.
Wrap it before you tap out.
This is the tedious and boring part. I suggest cutting the floral tape into 6 inch strips to cut down on frustration and swearing. No promises on the swearing though. I don’t know your life.
With a glue gun, apply a small dot of hot glue to the floral tape-wrapped headband. Tip: I unintentionally bought the best headbands from the party favor section at Michael’s. They have a criss cross pattern that serves as a tiny little divot for you to press the flowers “in” so they sit more flush to the band itself. ACCIDENTAL PINTEREST QUEEN!
Stick on the flower.
Please don’t make me explain this part to you.
Load that sucker up!
Repeat the glue dot and stick a flower on the glue thing around the headband. Start from the top, center of the headband and work your way down along either side, being sure to leave a bit of flower-less headband that can be tucked behind your ears.
Let me know in the comments if you try this out for yourself! Show me pics of your creations in the comments on Facebook.
