As I've been seeing these headpieces absolutely everywhere in our lovely internet world, I knew I just had to have one!
Believe it or not, the toughest part of this DIY for me was finding the right flowers! I knew I wanted roses, and at first I planned on using red and yellow ones, but I couldn't find good quality fake roses that weren't an insane amount of money. I'd pretty much given up hope for my own rose head-crown... But then my mom called with news that she bought some as she'd went out of town, and they were completely perfect!
This is the easiest way to make one of these. It is 100% foolproof, and that's a guarantee. I'm pretty sure my 2 year old cousin could master the art of this particular DIY!
Literally all you need is just the following three things:
For this to work, you want to make sure that the roses are neither too big nor too small. This is obviously going to depend on your taste and, quite frankly, the size of your head. But, the second, and probably most important thing, is that the roses must have wired stems. This is important because you won't be using any glue, so you want to make sure that the stems can be easily manipulated around the headband!
So, after you've trimmed the stems off your roses with your scissors or pliers, it's time to figure out the placement of the roses on the headband. Now, you want to make sure that you leave around 3 inches of stems so you can wrap them around the headband securely!
There is no special way in doing this. I did all of mine differently, but made sure to wrap the stem around the rose on both sides, so in an infinity shape. It doesn't matter if this looks messy because you won't be able to see it once it's on your head.
This technique is going to allow you to further manipulate the roses just a bit after you've attached them to the headband, so you'll be able to turn them to the front if you'd like, or leave them facing upwards. It's totally up to you!
When you've gone all around the headband, with the exception of the ends that are supposed to go behind your ears, you should be left with something like this in a matter of minutes:
One more quick tip!
I find that this looks the best with curly or wavy hair.
