I never used to be a headband girl, but during my spring break travels last April, I fell in love with floral headbands. Ever since, I thought they would be a fun accessory for a summer concert, beach day or road trip adventure. But the thought of paying $15 or more for a floral headband didn’t float too well with me, so when I found this DIY version on Pink Pistachio, I was all in for a good DIY. These are my versions of a floral headband for summer to wear on your next getaway–if you’re feeling some inner flower power!
- Silk flower assortment
- Suede leather cording (I found a good, cheap amount in the jewelry-making section of my local craft store) OR basic white, thick string
- Hot glue gun
- Tape & Scissors
Total Cost: Less than $5 (I had the white string and glue gun at home already! Also, there were good sales on flowers!)
- Cut three equal pieces of suede leather or string, measuring the circumference of your head and adding about 7 inches of string at the end (to be safe!)
- Tie the three pieces together in a knot, leaving 2-4 inches at the end.
- Begin to braid the strands together, measuring the length as you go along, and tie a knot to end the braid
- Get ready to glue your flowers! >> Tape the ends of the string to a flat surface, so your headband lies flat (I found this made it easier!) Hot glue your flowers onto the braid in a pattern you like.
- Let the hot glue cool.
- Tie it around your head, cut off any extra strings and enjoy!
What is your go-to accessory this summer?
