DIY Headband (silk roses)

Washi tape headband
It all started with this basket (above). I was about to toss it when I remembered who gave it to me (my amazing sister in-law). She always wraps my Christmas gifts in things she crafts together. Of course I try and top her. This basket/gift has been in my possession that's say 7 years or so. I think it's about time for us to part ways. However, i'll just pull the roses off then throw together a headband... just because I can.

You will need an old basket that you don't want with roses on it that you don't need. (see above)

8  silk roses (color optional)
1  glue gun w/glue sticks (5)

1  can spray paint black (flat)
pliers/wire cutters for stems from said roses (this will help w/unwanted glue)
.
.. and a headband (I used 2'" wide for large/heavy roses)
I spray-painted my headband black to give the roses a dramatic look. 


Trim your roses flush.


Start be placing your flowers on the right side working left. That's what I did even though the pic's show you differently. You want it to be even so, I assembled my roses in a train like pattern before I glued them on. Try not to mush your roses to much, kinda let the personality of the roses and leaves form.

Here are three different looks.


What do you think?

I like the first one.












That's it. I can't wait to show my sister in-law. I wonder if she even remembers these.

Avant-garde

How crazy are these hair styles? I think they are true works of art. The time and detail, not to mention the pain to wear them. These girls should get paid well for their efforts. When I was younger I would dabble a little art form here and there with my own hair, or anyone that walked by. Hell! just yesterday I pinned my hair up with suckers (that is what I was working with at the moment)... and my hair needed to be out of my face.) I also crochet hair for a different kind of look (I'll post video soon) it's a killer to undo if your in a hurry though:).. ~*M

Get your Portable ID! ...... Last time It was updated I was on level 12... and now look at me "SWEET"! Below are pic's & links that will show you reviews as well as prices w/details of what video games I loVe. The first 5 are in order (I would die with out). The others are ones that I play over and over again and would be sad with out them.



I'm going to talk about Fallout 3 on another post. Fallout 3 my favorite game in the whole wide world. (who says that? I do!) So I look forward to that. ~*M

P.S you can add me. I love Zombies anytime~ and yes, I have a xbox & PS3 & Wii etc...

Deco tape Headband



I just made this. What do you think about it? I think this headband with it's mosaic/collage-ish design of washi tape, is FUN, UNIQUE, and CLEVER. To make the bow stand out from the band it needed it's own story. To translate that story I used a ribbon effect. This headband should only be worn by someone who has their own story to tell.
