Tag Archives: floral headpiece D.i.Y
Happy Friday everyone!! Phew! been a long week this one and I’m so ready for a nice glass of vino tonight!
Welcome to DIY Friday and I am happy to say that my DIY posts will be a more regular feature from now on… woop woop!!!
So, Charlotte and I were thinking how nice it would be to be able to make your own headband floral pretty (or for your best girls…), so I set to work and here it is. And it’s so very easy……..enjoy and please let me know of anything you want me to have a go at for future posts.
You will need:
- Some material of your choice
- Some fabric scissors
- Needle and cotton
- Some beads of your choice
- A pen/ pencil
- Plain plaited headbands (H & M are great and only £1.99 each)
- Mini safety pins
Fold your fabric into squares ( think about how many layers of petals you want)
If you fancy it you can draw a flower shape or alternatively just use our downloadable template
Cut the flower shape out
Layer the flower petals and arrange as you wish to (neat or a bit haphazard, we prefer the latter)
Load up your needle with cotton and stitch through the centre of the flower and attach beads and/or buttons of your choice.
Ruffle the petals and if you want a more shabby-chic looking flower then you can pull away the edges of the petals to losen the weave to give a frayed effect
