Let’s do this!
It should take about an hour. You can wear this all weekend and soak in its glory.
STEP 1: Gather the ingredients
- Safety pins
- Scissors & glue gun
- Cheap wire headband
- Thin ribbon in as many colours as you like
*I’m using those from my #bungaBERSIH dress, which already have safety pins glued on. You can use any kind of fake flower (handmade or store bought) and hot glue a safety pin to the back.
STEP 2: Cut a ribbon 3 times the length of the headband
STEP 3: Tie ribbon to one end of the headband and start wrapping around it, going in between the teeth. Leave a nice length at your first knot.
STEP 4: This is what it’ll look like when you’re done. Now you’ve got a nice base to pin the flowers on.
STEP 5: Line up the flowers so you’ll know in which order you want them to be along the headband. Fire up your glue gun and glue a safety pin to the back of each flower (be sure to glue the non-moveable part of the pin).
STEP 6: Pin the flowers to the ribbon base. You can also sew the flowers on, but it takes longer. Also, with safety pins you can change the flowers when you feel like it! Not to mention take them off your head and pin them onto other people.
Flowers all pinned down:
STEP 7: Tie some short lengths of ribbon randomly between the flowers. This will make it look pretty.
STEP 8: Tie longer lengths of ribbon close to the first tooth of each side, so they can flutter around in the wind.
Tell me if you make this! I wanna see.
For the makeup geeks: Neon yellow eyeshadow from Sleek Acid palette under the eyes and all the way up and down the temples. Line the bottom waterline with white liner (Revlon Matte Luxurious Kohl in Pure White #004). Sheer purple lipstick (Rimmel Moisture Renew in Electric Plum).
