DIY Tutorial - Fairy Headbands


We recently celebrated Skylar's birthday by throwing her a fairy party to enjoy with her girlfriends.  They had such a wonderful time getting makeovers, complete with tutus, wings, wands, and fairy headbands.  It was such a joy to watch all of the girls enjoying themselves, and I think the adults had a great time too!

Today I want to share with you the tutorial on how to make the fairy headbands.  It was such a simple project and very affordable!  As a budget-friendly tip, always keep an eye out for supplies throughout the year after any holiday.  The flowers for this project were 80% off since they were in the Christmas floral department, and the pink plastic headbands were a closeout deal from Halo Heaven.  I spent less than $3 total to make 12 headbands!

SUPPLIES:

- Silk Flowers (I used hydrangea flower bunches from Michaels)
- Small Plastic Headbands
- Scissors
- Hot Glue Gun


1.  Cut off all of the flowers from the stems so they are flat on the bottom.  Keep them separated by color/type, so it makes it easy to assemble later.


2. If you want to keep it simple, you can put the flowers on the headband one at a time. I wanted a more layered look, so I decided to glue a green flower on top of a white flower, but that is up to you and depends on the color/type of flowers you have.

3.  Arrange the flowers on the headband how you want to glue it.  Since I only had limited flowers to make 12 headbands, I had to count how many flowers I had and divide equally to make sure every headband would have the same amount of flowers.  (I had some extra flowers, so I made the birthday girl's headband a little fuller).

4.  Use the hot glue gun to glue the flowers onto the headband.


And there you have it!  You have a beautiful floral headband that would make any fairy happy!  Here are the headbands on Skylar's dress-up table at her party...
