These DIY Orchid Flower Headbands are super adorable and fairly easy to make. They are a fun way to sassy up a plain headband. Like most of my DIY’s I tried to use materials that we had at home i.e. plain headbands.
While learning about South American countries, the girls fell in love with the festive styles of hair and use of flowers in the hairstyles. Unfortunately, for my girls they have short hair. So, I made them these orchid headbands.
DIY Orchid Flower Headbands
- 1 Silk Orchid Stem with about 6-7 flowers in color of choice
- Green satin ribbon 1/2 inch
- Craft glue or hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Scissors or floral wire cutters
- Using the floral wire cutters cut the flowers off the main stem.
- Working on a flat surface, lay out the orchids next to the headband to figure out the placement. Also, trim the orchid stems if needed.
- Next, starting at the top of the headband, apply a liberal line of craft glue.
- Then lay the first orchid on top of the glue.
- Next wrap the stem of the orchid and that section of headband tightly in the ribbon. (Ideally you want the glue to ooze around the headband and be covered by the ribbon).
- Leave the ribbon hanging off for now.
- Next apply more glue and attach the next orchid overlapping on the ribbon.
- Then wrap that orchid stem and section of headband with the ribbon.
- Keep repeating until you have covered the last orchid stem with ribbon.
- Then cut the ribbon, wrap it around the headband, and secure with glue on the top.
- Finally, apply glue to the underside of the orchid petals that are touching the ribbon and anchor them down to hide the ribbon and stems. If desired, you can glue the petals that are touching each other together for more security.
The girls love these orchid flower headbands! They wear them at least weekly to school. They think they look fancy! 🙂
I like that the headbands were easy to make and that the girls love them. I think they would make great costume accessories or fun alternatives to crowns and party favors at birthday parties.
