Step One:
Measure your first piece of wire garland around the intended wearer’s head. Or, if you are making multiples, just find someone close in age to the intended recipients age range (no exact science over here lol). I used a styrofoam mannequin head for this tutorial.

Step Two:
Cut your wire garland about 1”-1.5” longer than you need it to be. Cut 3-4 pieces in your color preferences.Wire Garland Halo Hair Piece DIY Tutorial | Always Under Pay

Step Three:
Twist the ends of the wire garland together to make a circle/halo.

Step Four:
Cut some pieces of curling ribbon. These will be the curly pieces hanging down the wearer’s back. You’ll need to cut them about 3” longer than you really want them because you will be curling them in a later step, and that tends to shorten them quite a bit.Wire Garland Halo Hair Piece DIY Tutorial | Always Under Pay
Step Five:
Fold the cut pieces in half and make a loop. Slide the loop under the halo pieces. Then, bring the longer pieces up and through the loop. Pull tight to secure to your halo.Wire Garland Halo Hair Piece DIY Tutorial | Always Under PayWire Garland Halo Hair Piece DIY Tutorial | Always Under Pay

Step Six:
Tie a bow with your curled pieces if desired. I love me a pretty bow! I tied mine in a double knot so that it wouldn’t come undone later.

Step Seven:
Use the scissors to curl your curling ribbon pieces up a bit. I’m not quite sure how to explain this process if you haven’t ever done it before. I just place the ribbon against the side of the scissor blade and hold it firmly against the blade with my thumb. Then pull the full length of the ribbon between your thumb and the scissors quickly. It usually works best for me if the curling ribbon is touching the scissor blade on the least shiny and non-ribbed side. I hope that makes sense.

Patriotic Triangle Pennant Banner Tutorial

3 Cut Out Cardstock Star
Double Sided Adhesive Tape
Newspaper or Drop Cloth (Not Shown)
A Nice Sunny Day! :)

Step One:
Cover all of the Ties on each piece with the painter’s tape. Then spray paint all 5 pieces white. I did about two good coats of paint on each piece. You’ll need to let them dry for about 20 minutes between each coat.

Step Two:
Let the white coat dry until dry to the touch (usually about 20-30 minutes). Use the painter’s tape to mark off some stripes on two of the pennants. Then begin spraying with red spray paint, again about two coats and letting dry 20 minutes or so between each coat.

Stripes Spray

Step Three:
Use double sided adhesive to thoroughly cover the back of the cardstock star cut outs. Adhere the stars to the center of the remaining 3 pennants. Then spray paint each of them over with blue paint remembering two coats and 20 minutes dry time between each coat.

Step Four:
Remove all painter’s tape and the cardstock pieces from all pennants. Tie the pennants together using the attached jute ties. Voila! A beautiful patriotic banner to decorate inside or outside. This would be really cute for summer barbecue and Independence Day décor.
