How To Create Your Own Floral Headband!

 

 

 

 

Hello again! The other day I decided to make myself a couple of headbands so I thought I’d document it and show you how to do it too! It’s super easy and only takes 10 minutes. First of all, you will need:
– A plain headband
– A pair of pliers (or scissors)
– Some fabric flowers (these can be any size you want)
– A hot glue gun (CAUTION: HOT GLUE GUNS ARE HOT AND WILL BURN YOUR THUMB IF YOU GET SOME ON YOU! (p.s. don’t ask how I know this…))

Step 1: First of all, you want to line up your flowers in the order you’ll be putting them on.

Step 2: Use your pliers (or scissors) to cut off any tip that’s on your flower. You want your flower to be as close to the headband as possible but make sure to leave a little bit to actually get stuck inside the glue.

Step 3: Using your hot glue gun, (don’t forget to be SUPER careful!), squeeze out a glob of glue in the middle of your headband. Before it dries, press your middle flower onto the glob, making sure it’s straight and in the center.

It doesn’t matter if it’s too messy, you won’t see it when you’re wearing it.

Step 4: Hold your flower in place until the glue has dried. It will go from clear to cloudy when it’s dry. Continue doing this until all of your flowers are on.

Step 5: Add a bit more glue around the stalks jut to fill any space that might let the flower be pushed over or fall out. This isn’t a necessity however it is quite helpful.

And there you have it! Your very own handmade floral headband!
