Flower Fairy Headbands DIY

I love making things for my Lucia – as the creative process is twofold.  My vision, followed through from start to finish becomes a vehicle of five-year-old fantasy when placed into my daughter’s hands.  With her imagination, she is free and uninhibited, and I am her quiet observer, immersed in her day dreams.

My flower fairy headbands were inspired by the flower fairy and leaf queen crowns that I made for Lucia last year. I see her love for costumes, props and elaborate fantasy play as such a fun celebration of childhood.

The headband making process is beyond simple and easily customizable.  Begin by cutting faux leaves and flowers off of stems and matching leaves of different sizes into pairs.  I cut the plastic backings completely off of the flowers to ensure that they lay flat. I also cut off tiny balls to embellish with. Small pearls, crystals and broken pieces of jewelry are also fun things to adorn flowers with.

Use a glue gun to cover both sides of the headband in overlapping leaves. The smaller leaves should be close to the ears (so that the headband can comfortably fit on the child’s head) .  Arrange flowers (and anything else) and go glue gun crazy.

Let the headbands dry thoroughly.

And watch the fairy magic begin.
