Greek Headband DIY
Hello Dahlings! I had been staring at this boring old headband for quite some time looking for something special to jazz it up a bit. Nothing interesting enough was coming to me. I mean, I could have covered it in feathers, or ribbons or sequins, but I really wanted something new for my collection of hair pieces. However, what I ended up doing was something very old instead.
I decided to make my own felt version of a Greek headband. This was really easy to make and cost next to nothing.
Supplies —> Felt (beige or white), hot glue gun, flat headband, scissors, and gold spray paint.
Step 1 —> Spray paint one side of the felt. Let dry.
Step 2 —> Cut a template out of a piece of cardboard. I just cut out a few leaf shapes until I found one that I liked. Then use the full sheet of felt to make the leaves.
Step 3 —> Lay out all the leaves onto some cardboard, use straight pins to keep them in place. Spray paint the other side of the leaves as well as the sides of the leaves.
Step 4 —> Start gluing your gold leaves to the side of your headband. Start by gluing one on an angle at the base of the headband. Glue the next leaf on top of the first leaf you already glued down. Continue this until you reach the centre of the headband. Start up the other side until you reach the other leaves at the centre of the headband.
I know this headband might seem a little over the top, but I think it looks great with a beautiful summer dress. I like that because it’s spray painted felt it’s not too flashy or shiny, but a little more earthy. I was really thrilled to wear it.
I hope everyone is having a good week and enjoying some sunshine.
