Floral Happy Birthday Headbands DIY

Happy May Day! These fun headbands are the perfect accessory for a spring birthday party. With just a little wire and some mini silk flowers, you can spell out an unexpected birthday message for the guest of honor.

Materials: Wire, Glue Gun, Small Flowers, Headband

Step 1: Bend the wire into the shape of the words. We found that leaving space between the letters helps to distinguish them. Be sure to leave a length of wire before the first letter and after last letter for attaching it to the headband.
Step 2: Using a hot glue gun attach the flowers to the wire letters. Make sure to keep the flowers neat by keeping them from filling the centers of letters like ‘p’, ‘d’, and ‘a’.
Step 3: Once the letters are covered, bend to match the curve of the headband.
Step 4: Attach the word to the headband by wrapping the extra lengths of the first and last letters around the headband.

    Jordan, this project is hilarious and so sweet! I love it! I think spelling out “Bride” would be such a cute (and much classier than a cheap, plastic tiara) way to celebrate a bachelorette garden party or for a wedding shower. So cute.

    These are fantastic. The headbands could also be used for a baby shower to bridal shower.
