Remember the charming, crafty Caleigh? She and some girlfriends have been sporting lovely DIY flower crowns when they go out on the town.
|She wore this one when she came to see Hair|
Naturally, I invited her over so she could teach me her ways.
This craft really couldn't be simpler or cheaper. All you need are...
- A hot-glue gun
- An elastic headband (or length of elastic fitted to your head size)
- Fabric flowers
Congratulations - you can make a flower crown! Just arrange the flowers in your desired pattern and glue them to the band. Easy-peasy.
Since Atlanta has practically skipped summer (our fair city thinks it's October already), I decided I'd give my crown an autumnal feel. I picked some orange and red leaves, and based my color scheme around them.
Caleigh made hers a little more uniformly. She alternated large white flowers with smaller blue ones, and likes to wear hers high, well above her hairline.
Nearly-Former Roomie (we're moving) used smaller flowers for a softer, more romantic feel.
If you're looking for a really simple, intensely girly craft to do this week, I recommend the flower crown. You can make one for yourself, and then go crazy creating them for friends. Just make sure you wear them the next time you go to dinner!
