DIY Flower Girl Headpiece

We all know that a dream wedding comes with a lot of detail.  From the wedding gown to the flower girl’s headpiece, everything has to be perfect.  Of course you’d also like everything to match with the color palette you’ve chosen for this memorable day. 

 So here’s a tutorial on how you can make you own flower girl headpiece.  It can become a fun do-it-yourself project with your bridesmaid.

Materials:

  • 1 – Thin plastic or metal headband (available at your local convenient store such as Walgreen or Duane Reade)
  • 1 yard of ¼” Satin Ribbon
  • 17 inches of rosebud trim (17 inches can be used for one headband.  The one used in this image is style number 25176)
  • 5 Satin Rosebud Appliqués (style number 23305 is shown in the image)
  • Hot-glue gun
  • Scissors

If you like the trim or the applique used in this headpiece, you can call 1-800-965-8746 to order or check for other available colors.

 

Instructions:

  1. Using the scissors, cut the 1 yard of satin ribbon in half.
  2. After the glue gun has already heated up, carefully add a tiny dab of it onto one end of the headband.
  3. Again being careful, take one of the pieces of satin ribbon you just cut and wrap about ½” of it around the recently glued area.  This should allow your ribbon to dangle.  Repeat this with the other ribbon onto the other end of the headband.
  4. Now it’s time to cover those ends up.  Using the glue gun, add tiny dabs of glue onto the inside of the headband. 
  5. Then take the rosebud trim and place ½” of it over the glued area.
  6. After you’ve finish with that, slowly start adding tiny dabs of glue along the outside of the headband.  Remember to add the glue only a little at a time. (1 inch at time)
  7. Then, slowly start pressing the trim over the glue.  Continue this with the glue and the trim until you reach the other end of the headband.
  8. Once you’ve reached the end, add a tiny dab of glue onto the inside of the headband and over it with the trim.  This should cover up stain ribbon you wrapped earlier onto the headband.  Cut off any extra trim.
  9. Now with the rosebud appliqués.  Add a dab of glue onto the area where you’d like to place the rosebud and then place the rosebud on top. 
  10. This shouldn’t take you more than 15 to 20 minutes.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say you have done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

    Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would
    really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got
    your design. Thanks

      Thank you. The theme is Funki downloaded from the wordpress site. (Click on appearances and then themes.) You can have a lot of fun sampling the different options. Hope this was helpful!
