Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: INSPIRATION
I want to focus on Frida Kahlo’s unique style. She made her hair her most colorful accessory by adorning her looks with brightly colored flowers and head wraps.
Step 2: SUPPLIES
- Simple headbands
- A bundle of fake flowers
- Felt or another fabric
- Wire Cutters
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks for the glue gun
Step 3: CUT FLOWERS FROM STEAM
Use your wire cutters to cut the stems off.
Step 4: FORTIFY YOUR FLOWERS
Often, elements can collapse after they have been separated, so flowers need to be glued well with a glue gun.
Step 5: BUILD THE BASE
Cut out 20cmx2cm piece from felt for base, and glue it on the inside of the handband.
This will give the glue something to grab onto.
Step 6: ATTACH FLOWERS
Now you can directly glue to the base.
Start by gluing the larger flowers in the middle of the headband first and work your way out.
All you do is add flowers until your crown feels finished!
Step 7: HAVE FUN!
Congratulations! You’re done and ready to wear the flower crown DIY you made!
