Easy Flower Headbands

So, a few people have called the warehouse lately asking what exactly you might do with some of the new flowers we’ve gotten in. Namely the shabby flowers and rolled rosettes. There are lots of things to do with them, but today I’m going to show you one of the  most popular (and cute!).

I didn’t feel the need to create a tutorial on these trendy little headbands because they are really just so simple.I just hot glued the flowers straight onto the headbands. Easy peasy, right? And really oh so cute! You can make them to match any outfit!  Just pick out a few of your favorite flowers, get your glue gun and imagination and you are set.  You could add a little pizazz with some rhinestones too if you fancy.

I made these in Valentine and Spring colors for a couple of reasons. One, because spring just feels like it must be right around the corner (since we have had SO MUCH snow!).  Second, because we are GIVING THEM AWAY!  Just leave a comment on this post with your favorite new girl’s fashion trend, and we’ll pick a winner with random.org three days from now!

These flowers would also be wonderful attached to an alligator clip and slipped through our crochet headbands.  Remember, we have wonderful wholesale products and prices to make such cute, fun, headbands, clips, tutus, and anything girly you can dream up!

Hooray for fun free stuff!  Comment now for your chance to win!  We will pick a random winner on Friday, 2/8/13 at noon MST so it goes out before the mail leaves (if you get back to us with your address in time).  Good luck!! Veronica, you are the winner, check your email! :)  Congratulations. (We had so many comments, thank you.  We had to go through and delete all of the old ones.  Thanks everyone!)

DIY: Patriotic Headband

Today I thought it would be fun to use our marabou boas for something besides dressing up our necks. You can cut the boas up and use them for embellishments on all sorts of crafts. I decided to use a white one for a headband embellishment.

4th of July HeadbandIsn’t that cute? Want to see how I did it?

You will need:

Scrap Piece of Navy Blue Tulle

Small cut off of a Marabou Boa Feather Boa (I think mine is about 5″)

Red Satin Lined Plastic Headband

Red 5 CM Crochet Flower

Some String

Something to embellish your center (rhinestone, button, etc.)

Scissors

Glue Gun and Glue Stick (not pictured)

Directions:

Start by taking your piece of marabou and folding it into a loop. Use the string to tie it together at the end.

Now cut a piece of your tulle whatever length you want it to be. I think mine ended up abourt 4.5″-5″ long. Pinch the center together and tie with the string. Now shape it how you like it and trim the ends with your scissors.

Take your headband and use your glue gun to run a bead of glue along the side where you want your marabou piece to lie. Then place your marabou loop on the glue and hold in place for a few seconds to make sure it stays. Be careful not to burn yourself–that marabou isn’t very thick!

Now take the tulle embellishment that you made and squeeze a dob of hot glue onto the back center. Adhere that piece to the bottom of your marabou loop. Don’t try to put the glue on the marabou piece. It is too wispy and will get glue everywhere (speaking from experience here :)).

Sorry for the white on white–it’s kind of hard to see. But I’m sure you get the idea.

Glue your crochet flower to the center of the tulle bow embellishment.

Now just glue your rhinestone or other embellishment in the center of your flower, and voila! You are done!

This is a super fun and patriotic hair accessory. Great for parades or wearing to family barbeques, picnics, firework shows, or just for fun!

Isn’t this a fun baby headband?  It might be a little too big to be an infant headband, but would look just adorable on a toddler girl!
