This is a similar idea to my glowing flower headband (which can be found here:http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-a-glowing-flower-headband/ ) but this one requires more soldering and gives more freedom.

Step 1: Materiels

For this project, you will need:

-one fake flower (or more, you can use a bunch if you want.  Bigger and fluffier ones are easier to work with)
-color changing LED (or any color)
-one small switch
-one battery holder that will hold 2 AAA batteries
-2 AAA batteries
-blank headband
-feathers, or anything else you want to use to decorate
-hot glue and glue gun
-soldering iron and solder
-electrical tape
Its really an interesting 1<br>i want 2 do this and <br>want 2 give surprise 2 my firends<br>i hav a small doubt<br>dnt u think that the bateries used makes the band heavy <br>do u have any alternative for this????<br>
The batteries are not unbearably heavy, although you can feel them on your head. You could definitely use a 3 volt coin battery or two 1.5 volt watch batteries, both of which are much smaller, easier to hide and lighter weight. I just happened to have AAA batteries and the holder for them so I used those.<br>Basically, you just need to provide the right voltage to your LED and mine needed 3 volts, so any type of battery that can accomplish that will work.<br>If you make this please post pictures! I love that people are interested in it!
Yes, I may need to make one of these for my wedding. . .
That would be awesome! Post a picture if you end up making one! I'd love to see other variations!
Pretty, I like the way you hid the battery with the ribbon!
thanks! It was a challenge to figure out how I was going to hide it, but it turned out really well and you can't even see the battery pack on the finished headband :)
