Helloo!! Let’s get Crafty! Everyone get Crafty! Get Crafty in here. If you haven’t seen Rick and Morty “get Schwifty” then you are missing out. Hilarious. Anyways, I almost typed that in the title. Today on Glamorousandgeeky.com we are going to get down with the glue sticks. (there I go again.) We are making floral headwear! I love floral headwear! And I was inspired not by Coachella and festivals but by something else entirely. Dolce and Gabanna. Yes, their use of floral head wear and chunky renaissance crowns inspired me to make something for myself. Instead of buying it, I made it! Granted making things like this can get pricey. I was going to take that florally risk. SO, I grabbed the little, made a pit stop to ULTA to spend money and then we went on a Glam field trip to Michael’s Craft store to GET CRAFTY.
I got a pack of headband and some silk flowers. AS well as another glue gun, I keep loosing mine in NARNIA. The flowers are on sale right now, these were $1 a bunch and the bigger ones are 50% off. Not bad. The head band was about $2.
Now I made a youtube video and it is short short short. Because my camera died(batteries weren’t charged.) and so, I just was like you know what? Screw it I am tired and you get the idea of what I am doing in the video. I will make a second one later that is better, more Martha Stewartish. Because lord knows I am lacking in this, only because I don’t do tutorial vids.
So you will need:
A glue gun
Scissors I used the kitchen ones because they are sturdier
Plain headbands (you can use any kind really other than cloth those wont stick.)
Take the Flowers off the stems and remove the leaves too. Toss the stems. Then with the scissors cut the leaves off the plastic bit. Then trim the bottom plastic bit on the flowers so they are more flattish. This is so you can put them on the headband easier. If the glue is having trouble sticking to the head band rough up the head band with some steal wool.
Then on each flower put a glop of hot glue and stick the flowers on. I like to alternate sides.I put the one in the center. Then did the left then the right. And so on and so forth. That way it is even. When that was done I added the leaves where I wanted by putting hot glue on the UNDERSIDE of the leaves. And then I adhered them to the band. You should get something like this.
I took the ribbon and placed a dot of glue on the inside of the band and wrapped around until done then glued it down at the other end.
What you see is the result here!
And there you go. What better way to share it than an outfit and some woodsy backdrop?
Love this so much and I can not wait to style one again! LOVE~~~
