DIY Lana Del Rey Headband

I'm a little bit obsessed with Lana at the moment. From her beautiful singing voice to her vintage Hollywood looks and everything about her style. Her statement flower headpieces are a favourite of mine and as soon as I saw her rocking one I was dying to get my hands on one! I didn't find anything on the highstreet of the same quality so decided to have a go making one myself.

It was actually pretty simple. All you need is a thin headband, superglue, sissors, ribbon and some artifical flowers (I picked mine up from Wilkinsons!)

So first off I snipped the heads of flowers and about 5cm of the stem.
I then wrapped the stem around the headband as sercurely as I could, This can be a bit tricky
as the stem is made from metal but does bend you just gonna push hard.
I repeated this enough times until I was happy with how many flowers I wanted on there.
Then I took my ribbon and superglued the end of it around one end of the headband.
Then began to wrap the ribbon around the headband covering the stems of the flowers, once I got to the other end of headband I snipped my material and superglued this end as well.
And ta-dah!

I hope this was easy enough for everyone to understand :)
