DIY: Floral Headbands

This is a March of the Bloggers guest post!

"DIY: Floral Headbands"


Today's post is something extra special. It combines DIY crafting and beautiful vintage fashion in one. Tori is a girl whose endless imagination manifests itself in the form of style posts, craft projects, and a lovely Etsy shop on her adorably-named blog "Daisies and Pixie Dust." These are only a few of the notable things on her fascinating blog. Her creativity brings us a lovely little DIY headband in her guest post today.


During this past week, I’ve really taken notice of the arrival of spring. I could not be more excited- I love the sunnier weather and how everything is in bloom. I adore flowers and all things floral, so naturally I am head over heels in love with floral headbands. I’ve been making and wearing them so much it’s become a regular daily accessory for me. I’m going to show you how to make your own in a few simple steps.

Here’s what you will need:

These items can all be found in a grocery or craft store. Higher-end silk flowers are more expensive, but look more realistic. The ones I used are from the dollar store. Overall, this project cost me around 7 dollars for the wire, the tape, and the three different kinds of flowers. 

Step 1.
Wrap the floral wire around your head so that it creates a circle shape. Be sure that it fits comfortably on your head. Wrap around an additional two or three times to make it extra sturdy.

Step 2. 
Cut your flowers to the desired length. Take your first one or two flowers and place them in the desired direction against the wire circle. Use a small piece of wire (about 3 or 4 inches long) to wrap the flower tightly to the wire circle with the pliers or with your hands. Use the pliers to press down the ends so they don't stick out.

Step 3. 
Continue this process with more flowers, layering them next to and over one another until you feel like your headband is finished. (I left an empty area at the back of the headband, but if you choose, you can continue all the way around.)

Step 4. 
If you left an empty area on your headband, wrap the exposed wire tightly with the floral tape from end to end.

Step 5. 
Wear your new floral headband! 


Not only did I love the concept of this post and the headband itself, I also did a lot of gushing over the adorable photos Tori took! You can clearly see she's got a great creative mind in the way she sets up and edits her photography.

We'd love to see your end result if any of you decide to make this beautiful hairpiece! Either way you should explore more of Tori's fascinating blog and leave her some love in the comment box! Every comment you make enters you in the jewelry giveaway!
