You’ve gotta admit its everywhere. First seen on Lana Del Rey, the extravagant headpieces have been seen on so many editorials and blogs worldwide. We decided we want some of our own, so here’s the tutorial.
Firstly, the materials you need before you get started.
- A variety of artificial flowers (Range from $3.90 – $12.90 from Exim Arts)
- Shears/Wire cutter (not pictured)
- Glue Gun (not pictured)
I made two variations of the floral headband — one using a normal black hairband from Sinma ($1.90) and another with the green wire used in floral arrangement ($2 from Art Friend). I also bought all my artificial flowers from Exim Arts (very helpful staff who would help you match your flowers if you like) but other places which carry artificial flowers are Ikea, Art Friend, NTUC and your usual florist.
Step 4. Keep going! I found it useful to sometimes wait for the glue to dry and try on the headband to see where the other flowers should go. I wanted the flowers to taper down the sides so I started putting lesser flowers as I reached the bottom.
Step 5. And you’re done! Feel free to experiment with different types of flowers and colours. If your glue gun isn’t the heavy duty type, it might even be possible for you to “pluck out” and rearrange the flowers you stuck on. Have fun!
I also made another flower wreath headband because I saw these flowers that look so… dead and from the wild. This was simply made by making a circle with the green wire around my head, then coiling the individual flowers and leaves on. Sooo easy!
Upon seeing both, which do you prefer? :)
