After the winter Holidays season, what’s there to look for? Spring! Valentine’s Day, Easter – the warmer weather and the burgeoning flowers! I cannot wait to see my garden in Spring – we actually have a tradition we follow each spring – we visit the Botanical Garden. The kids love it and we always take advantage of that flowery break, each year.
Last spring, we braided some flowers crowns from some wild flowers we were allowed to pick and this year we’ll go in prepared with our own flowers headbands! They’re huge with fashionistas everywhere and they’re so beautiful, you’ll want to wear one all year long!

I’m always on the lookout for DIY on a budget so this is definitely one of those occasions you’ll love, if you’re like me: hunting bargains and looking for inspiration to make your own version of designer goodies! Last year I picked up some artificial flowers from Ikea – I think they were going for $1 each? I thought I’d make a summer or spring wreath out of them but kept them in my craft box ever since.
I was feeling crafty the other day so I ransacked by craft box and sticking out were my artificial flowers: that’s it! I’m all in! Took my scissors and cut out the flowers from the branch, wrapped an old $1 plastic headband in green tulle and on I went with the silicon gun.

10 minutes later, I had not one, but two spring headbands: one for me and one for my daughter! I cannot begin to tell you how happy she was seeing the flowery crows – these are atypical headbands for me, I usually do fabric bows and flowers but this time I went the extra mile and went out of my comfort zone, working with supplies I usually consider kitsch and ‘meh’.
Overall, I’m satisfied with this DIY project – I’ve seen faux flowers headbands go for $10 and mine were done with less than $3 worth of supplies! What do you think about the new headbands? Would you wear one of these? (all pictures are taken by me, save for the ones where I’m wearing the headbands which were taken by my Adored Husband)
