Remember when we meet Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl and fell in love with her stylish clothes, luscious hair and preppy headbands? Style heaven! Well the next person you need to meet (if you haven’t already) would be the stunning Lana Del Rey and her gorgeous floral headbands. They are the perfect IN accessory to brighten your winter gatherings or summer music festivals this season. But instead of buying one from the store we’re going to show you how to make your own! The best thing about it, you won’t be caught wearing the EXACT same headband as the other flower loving chick. DIY for the win!
First things first! To make your own floral headband you will need scissors, fake flowers of your choice, a headband and a hot glue gun (mine is just a low temperature gun).
Turn the hot glue gun on and while it heats up, cut the stems off your fake flowers. Go as close as you can without damaging the flower petals.
Once all the flower stems have been cut off, arrange the flowers around till you’re happy with their arrangement.
Squeeze some glue onto the flowers. As you can see I kept the leafy parts to stick the glue onto without damaging the actual petals.
My tip is to start in the middle of the headband and work your way out as you go otherwise things can start to get a bit uneven.
Every time you add new flowers, place the headband on to see how it looks. Keep going till the flowers reach your ears and then you are done!
This is just one example you can use to make your very own floral headbands. Be sure to upload a photo of your own on Instagram or Twitter and tag or hashtag us – thetwentysomethings
