Fall Floral Crown

Baby blue eyes! To make them babies pop I chose blue’s complementary colors, oranges, reds and yellows (they are opposite on the color wheel, thanks art class!) Which worked out perfectly because her birthday is in the fall and I absolutely love fall colors! Just a little tip to keep in mind with photo shoots, decorating, crafting, etc. Use this diagram below. If you’d like to see a spring version of a floral crown, visit my post here https://justbrit.com/2015/09/19/diy-floral-crown/

Here’s what you gotta do!

Materials:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Headband elastic
  • Felt (match the color of felt to your flowers)
  • Fake/silk flowers of choice

Steps: 

1. Pull off flowers from stems and trim off stems with scissors. The shorter the stem the flatter the flower will lay.

2. Arrange flowers in desired pattern. Cut felt to match the length and width of the pattern. I tend to like the front thicker, so that’s why I used the felt, but if you only want a single strand of flowers, feel free to glue the flowers onto and around the actual headband.

3. Wrap and measure the elastic around your head or your baby’s head. Cut with scissors. Set aside.

4. Dab hot glue on the back of one flower at a time and place on the felt and hold for a few seconds until cool. Continue this process until all flowers are attached to the felt piece. (You’ll notice from the pictures that I actually added more flowers to make it look thicker).

5. Lay down the floral/felt piece with flowers down. Grab one end of the elastic and glue it to the center of the felt strip. Hold until cool. Grab the other end and glue it in the center as well, so that the ends are touching. Continue gluing the elastic to the felt.

6. Glue flowers to the remaining showing elastic.

I like having this type of elastic because it makes it more stretchy, that way Emilie can grow with it for awhile. And by “awhile” I’m pretty sure she can wear this as an adult too because this one actually stretches to fit me too!
