DIY: Floral Crown

I actually did this DIY project a little before fashion week. Why did I wait so long to share? Um...been busy? Anyway what better time to share this then now. It's a creative last minute idea if your still looking for a Halloween costume (hippy flower princess duh!). Or if you are are looking to brighten up your fall. Shoot, you can even do it with some fake fall leaves!

  • a basic plastic headband
  • fake flowers (used my flowers that I got when I was a brides maid)
  • hot glue gun

1. Take your fake flowers and start to pull them apparent. Most fake flowers are detachable from the stem so look for flowers that can be easily pulled apparent.

2. Before you start gluing,  decide how you want your flowers to be aligned. Start from the middle down.

3. Now the hot mess begins! Glue the bottom part of the fake flower to your headband. Make sure to work from the middle of the headband down.

4. Once you have all your flowers on wait for all the glue to be dried up. Don't want to get your hair full of glue.

5. Place it on your head and freely dance around!

How did I rock the floral crown? With my Theysken's Theory dress during NYFW!
