Today I'm honored to say that we have an awesome post from Christine at Projects Around the House! And not only that, but it's her first guest post so I'm extra excited and hope you guys will show her blog some love! I hope you enjoyed her interview and now she's back with an awesome wearable tutorial to help you look fun and pretty for spring!
I love making fake flower headbands. They are quick and easy and make great gifts. Plus they are so much cheaper to make yourself than to buy at the store. I made these headbands for my cousin for Christmas and my sister was jealous so I decided to make her one too.
I started by pulling this fake flower out of my stash.
I pulled all the petals off of the plastic piece that attached the flower together. Then I played around with stacking all the separate pieces to find a shape I liked. I saved the extra pieces for a future project (because a true crafter can never throw anything away :P)
In addition for the deconstructed flower I also used a headband, two small circles of felt and a button. Plus my hot glue gun.
I started by gluing the flower petals to one of the felt circles. Every time I glued down a new petal, I would try to position it differently than the petal below to make sure the flower would look full. When all the petals were glued down I glued the button in the center to hide the hole and make it look more finished.
Then I glued the felt circle to the headband.
And put the other felt circle on top to cover up excess glue and give it a finished look.
I love the way it turned out! I want to keep it for myself so I know my sister will love it.
Thank you SOOOOOO much to Christine for sharing her first guest post with us! I hope you all enjoyed it and remember to check out her amazing projects (including Anthropologie-inspired necklaces and yummy recipes) at her blog, Projects Around the House!
