- Hairband preferably a similar colour to your hair
- Synthetic flowers I was able to find quite a large selection at my local “bits ‘n bobs” shop - £1 per bouquet. There are quite a few eBay sellers who sell synthetic flowers at wholesale prices.
- Sharp scissors / craft knife
- Needle and thread preferably a similar colour to the flowers
1. Separate the heads of the flowers from the stems
N.B The heads of a lot of synthetic flowers are wired with metal rods and cupped with plastic for support. I decided to cut these parts out but if you feel you can sew around them, definitely go for it!
Alternatively, you could cut the plastic down as much as possible before you start sewing - I had to work for a little bit longer to make sure that the flowers kept their shape and didn’t fall flat without their support.
I don’t want to say too much here because honestly, I’m not a sewer…
As long as your thread is a similar colour to the flowers, you can pretty much be as messy as you want!
*If you’re anything like me, you might also want to explore the glue gun option!
Yes! This tutorial really only has 2 steps!
First time took me under 15 minutes! And I’m really happy with the way it turned out…
…if I do say so myself!
