Well, you know I love the gold. And the flowers. And using everyday materials I already have around the house for projects.
Check, check, and check!
So, I put them together and made this fancy little Boho Flower Headband for Miss V.
Ever since my days in retail I’ve kinda been in love with Boho headbands (I may have to “borrow” this one from V too ;) – hippie chick style across the forehead with the long hair flowing… ahhhhhh so in love! There was a reason a was born in the seventies – boho hippie chick is in my blood :)
Wanna make one for your little hippie chick (or you?) too?! Let’s get started!!
Boho Flower Headband
- Plastic Takeout Lid (I got mine from the Whole Foods Salad Bar)
- Headband Elastic
- Gold Metallic Sharpie
- Mini Gold Brads
- Flower Punch
- Matching Thread
- X-ACTO Knife
Boho Flower Headband
- Cut elastic for headband, the size of the child’s head circumference, with 4-6 inches extra.
- Punch out flowers out of takeout container lid with the flower punch.
- For each flower, color one side with the gold metallic sharpie. Let dry.
- For each flower, cut a small slit in the center of each flower with your craft knife – insert mini brad.
- With brads still not opened (pointed straight), insert the brads (with flowers attached) into the elastic – creating desired flower pattern on headband.
- Open the back of brads, and flatten out.
- Repeat steps for each flower in desired pattern around headband.
- Once finished inserting flowers around the headband, sew (on machine) or stitch (by hand) the headband closed in the back. Do this about a 1/2 – 1 inch shorter than your child’s head circumference so it will fit snuggly on their head.
