Girls Flower Wreath Headband

Tutorial Tuesday
Girls Flower Wreath Headband


I wanted a flower wreath headband for a one year old photoshoot this last weekend.
So I decided to make one and you can too!

What You Need:
Scissors
Needle & Thread
Headband or Elastic
Silk Flowers Of Your Choice
(I bought a bundle from Joann's for like a dollar after coupon)

How To Make It:
1.Use your scissors to cut the flowers off the stem.
2.Thread your needle and tie a knot at the end so you are threading w/ double thickness.
3. Stab your needle through the center of your flower and thread all the way through to the knot.
(This will create a hibiscus look to the center of the flower.)


4. Sew back through the backing a few times & create a knot to secure. 
5. Sew on each flower at equal distances.
(The distance apart will depend on how full you want your wreath.)


It's as simple as that!

How did it look on my model you ask?



Adorable!...
But... she hated it!



Oh well...better luck next time!

I was thinking as I scrolled down how cute it was and how unlikely it was that mine would've kept it on. Then I came to the last photo, too funny.

Laura said...

I made one for my daughter when she was that age, and she wouldn't wear it either. Such is life, but it is such a great idea to use the elastic. It seems more likely to keep it on than a regular type of headband. Nice job!

Jessica Hills said...

This is such a cute idea! I want to make one!

That is so cute! I was wondering how you'd keep it on and now I know. My 11 year old loves headbands now, but when she was a baby she hated anything on her head! Beautiful photography!

Thanks for linking up to Make it Yours Day at My Backyard Eden!

how beautiful! Thanks for linking up this week!!

I totally lolled. I had the same experience last year but with the tu tu. I have pictures of her trying to take it off. It takes serious bribing (I used grapes) to get them to wear the 'good stuff'. Thanks for sharing though, I am totally making it and I'll bring out the chocolate chips for the photo shoot!

I linked to this on last weekend's weekly roundup and am just now (yikes!) getting around to commenting. I'm still cracking up at how it turned out for you - what a cute, cute idea!!
