DIY Floral Headbands & Skeleton Hand Barrettes

This will be my first photo set that I edited (badly) so please be nice and enjoy!

So if you haven’t noticed, there is a trend for summer that I see everyone wearing. Floral headbands!

Cute huh? I’ve seen these headbands using a hard band (like the ones pictured above) as well as loose bands. But every time I see them sold in stores they range from $15-$30 each! So of course I’m not going to pay that, and of course I’m going to find out some way to make them myself.

To the crafting table!

or floor…

What you’ll need:

  • Sturdy headbands
  • Faux flowers (6-7 for each headband)
  • Hot glue gun or epoxy glue (I used epoxy glue)
  • Clips to hold your flowers in place while they dry
  • Scissors

Step 1: Pluck each of the flowers from their stems carefully.

These are the flower design and colors I chose.

Step 2: Cut the stem off completely from each flower.

Step 3: Throw and scatter materials on the ground for optimal efficiency.

Step 4: Put some glue on one flower and place it near the middle (not directly in the middle cause that will look awkward maybe). If you’re using epoxy glue then use some clips to hold each flower in place while it dries.

One thing that I would like to mention is that if you’re using flowers with a plastic bottom where the stem connects be VERY CAREFUL to not take the plastic off! If you do then your whole flower will come apart and you’ll have to glue each layer of the flower on top of each other.

Different backings.

Step 5: Do the same to the other flowers on each of their headbands and you’re pretty much done! Scroll down to the end of this post to see what they look like on me~

Yay! Another cheap DIY~

If you’re a trendy kid that’s into Japanese fashion then you know about skeleton hand clips for your hair right? Well if you don’t then Google it because that would be the obvious thing to do.

These clips that I’m making are slightly different from the ones you see on the street of Harajuku, but I’m not paying $15 for a pair so I’m gonna deal with these~

What you’ll need:

  • $1 bag of skeleton hands from Michael’s
  • Hair clips of your choice that aren’t bigger than the hands
  • Hot glue or epoxy glue (I used epoxy again)

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Glue the clip to the underside of the skeleton hand.

Step 2: Wait for it to dry completely.

See? You can hardly see the clip from the top! *thumbs up*

Step 3: Done! Suuuuuper easy~

Now for the pictures I promised you.

I hope that you got some inspiration from this DIY and if you made some headbands or skeleton hand hair clips yourself then share them with me!  I’ll insert a video of me showing you my headbands below. Start after the 1 minute mark to look at them.

Until next time~

Later Sweethearts,
