I am making floral headbands right now.
My mom came across literally around 1,000 unmade silk flowers.
I've been cranking them out like crazy!
They are a blast to make!!!
Step 1: Items Needed
Can be covered with ribbon, chain, or what have you. It can also be thin or wide.
Visit the floral department at your local craft store and look for packages of unmade silk flowers.
I used white starflowers on the head band pictured
You will also need flower stamen(2nd picture).
I use loctite crafters glue..indoor safe version, clear nylon thread and a needle.
Felt, small buttons(or larger depending on what size flower you picked). You can use whatever color felt you like.
Metallic sharpie type markers(craft style not the stinky ones). I used metallic Elementz markers.
Step 2: Color Your Flowers
I did two flowers at a time so it didn't take so long.
Also, if you buy precolored and cutsie flowers you can completely skip this step.
Also, yes they look messy... But I swear it adds to the charm.
You can paint the side however you like.
I am actually going to use alcohol ink on the next one I make.
