My daughter wanted a flower crown headband. I tried to tell her I already made one back in September when they first came out, and that she should just wear that one. Plus, it took me a long time to make. But she wanted it to look like the kind she sees in the shops. Not a “homemade” looking one. The one I made was made from felted sweaters I made into roses and then sewed to an elastic headband…. link here. And yes, it does look homemade. Plus, it was for her little sister. If you have had a “tween ” daughter then you know all too well they mean not what they say sometimes. And if you don’t have a tween yet, get ready for the little girl who once thought you could do no wrong, to soon to turn into a big girl who thinks her mom is pretty out of it. Someday she will appreciate how “cool” her mom actually was, but not for a few years! Right now there is no way anything mom makes be “cool”!
So I told her to make one herself.
And she did.
We bought a roll of leather cord at Micheal’s , some artificial carnations, and some felt that was close in color to the carnations. And of course we already have several glue guns.
Are you loving these flower crowns too?
