DIY Flower Crown Headbands


How cute are these flower crowns I made?! Last night, Kanibal Home hosted a DIY class on how to make these little autumnal beauties and I am still beaming with excitement about how fun and easy they were to craft.

All you need is the following:
-Hot glue gun
-Various silk or paper flowers and leaves found at Michael's
-Twine, ribbon and elastic
-Felt for backing

First, pull flower colors, textures and sizes for your project.

Next, lay out your flowers in a sequence and take a picture so you can follow it as a guide.
Lay out a piece of felt 8 inches by 2 inches, gluing a piece of twine with quick dots of the hot glue gun. Then, arrange the flowers and press gently. Allow to dry 10 minutes.

Next, Measure the twine to the back of your head, leaving about 2 inches of space where the elastic will go. With a piece of elastic about 2 inches, and two small pieces of felt rectangles, glue the pieces together and roll to create a smooth edge. Allow to dry 10 minutes and you are ready to wear your headpiece.

Here are a few great examples to inspire you. The possibilities are endless!

I love this project for a girls night in with cocktails, a kids craft for fairy fun, or maybe for a woodland theme baby girl shower where you can make little versions for fun photo props...

Shine in your crowning glory and daydream of fall.
