DIY Flower Headband Tutorial

To make your flower headband, you will need…

Several Fuzzy Sticks {aka pipe cleaners} in your choice of colors
Several Tissue Papers in your choice of colors

I chose pink pipe cleaners to cover the headband and all of the colors in the bag for the flower. But feel free to be as creative and as colorful as you like. 🙂

First you will need to fold the tissue papers in half twice {or in fourths}. Then stack the colors on top of each other and cut along all the edges so that you have several different pieces of each color.

Put the pieces you cut off to the side. You can use these if you want or you can throw them away. I did not use them for my diy flower headband.

Next, take a pipe cleaner and bend it in half. Wrap it around the headband and then continue with more pipe cleaners until you have covered all or almost all of the headband. Be sure to be carfeul as pipe cleaners can be a little sharp on the ends.

Pick up all of the papers that you cut earlier and put them over your finger just like they do in Creative Galaxy episode, “Annie’s Flowers.” Wrap a pipe cleaner around the part at the tip of your finger and twist it.

Finally, wrap the pipe cleaner that is securing your flower around the headband just like you did with the other pipe cleaners. Carefully fluff and crinkle the pipe cleaner and you are done. Voila!
