Miss Frugal is desperate to go to a festival but I’m not so keen as I like my home comforts too much to enjoy camping all that much. Last year, I managed to hold her off by having a festival in our own back garden but this year she’s not been so easy to put off.
The first DIY flower headband is made using a bunch of artificial flowers that I bought from The Range for £1.29 and although I do love it, in hindsight I think smaller flowers would have worked better. All I did with this one is intertwine the roses with each other around our marshmallow jar as that was the closest thing to head size that I could find. It took about five minutes to do and isn’t bad for the price of the flowers!
The second one cost even less to make! I bought some 50cm lengths of lace from our local craft shop for between 50p and 90p and simply cut them to size and used the glue gun to stick the two end flowers together – super simple but looks great if you ask me. Just be careful that you buy the right lengths of lace as 50cm was only just big enough for our heads. 😉
The final DIY flower headband that we made cost us absolutely nothing as I made it using an old beaded headband that we’ve had in the drawer for years and a fabric flower from a broken brooch. You can make fabric flowers really easily though so if you fancy making your own to match your outfit then just search ‘how to make fabric flowers’ on YouTube and you’ll find everything from simple 2 minute jobs to much more elaborate projects.
So there’s 3 different DIY flower headbands that are all super cheap to make so whether you’re off to a festival this Summer or you just fancy having one in your back garden, there’s no excuse not to have the right headgear!
