So after realizing my favorite accessory for the coming season is a flower crown/ headband, I decided the best thing for myself and my bank account is to learn how to make the item myself. I’ve always had a knack for arts and crafts, and when I found this step by step Youtube tutorial, I practically skipped to the closest Michael’s to get my supplies.

The procedure is simple. Gather your favorite flowers from your neighborhood craft store (as of this blog post Michael’s is running a 40% off sale. Yup, you’re welcome!) Snip your favorite petals, or in my case I pulled, and glue the flower to a piece of elastic. While I LOVE the end result, and some critique from the BF I’ve decided my next attempt at this will involve some twine and maybe even some leather, for a more au natural look.

Stay tune to see how the rest of the collection turned out! I might even start putting some up on my Etsy account.
