HOW TO MAKE A FLORAL HEADBAND

 
 
 

Hi guys,
   I am back and hopefully I will be better than before. Its a new year with new possibilities and I hope we all get to do our very best this year. As you all know I LURVE DIY!! If I could, I would change my middle name to DIY (although it would sound weird but who cares??? Lol) So the other day I was messing around with some stuff and I decided to create this super cute floral headband that I love so much. Here's how to make yours :
 
You'll Need

I used a Nice sturdy Bra strap for this. Naughty me!!
 
Let's begin 

Remove the flowers from the stems and if you wish to add leaves, remove them also.

Arrange the flowers and leaves how you would like them to appear on the headband.

Sew the first flower/leave on your line up on the head band. Ensure your stiches are barely visible on the flower/leave. If you are using regular elastic for this its best to sew the ends together before you start stitching on the flowers/leaves. Since I used a Bra strap that has closures at the end I decided to leave it open.

 

Now continue taking either a flower or a leave from your line up and sewing them as close together as possible. your rhythm should be leave/flower/leave/flower/leave and so on.

 
A quick Tip 

To ensure the flowers and leaves don't come apart I stitched them together first before sewing them on to the band. You see that black thread at the base of the flower? That's what holds the flower together.
 

Since I used an open strap with closures I had to sew the flowers on both sides of the straps while making sure the flowers/leaves at each end hide the straps from sight.

 
I stitched the flower right on top of the strap to hide it from view. If you are using a sealed head band or elastic, you don't have to do this. Just sew them right on till you get to the last flower/leave.
 
 
As you can see, the closures are hidden from sight with a leave on the left and a flower on the right to keep the rhythm going. Next I continued stitching leaves and flowers from my line up till they finished.
 
 
 
ALL DONE!!!

  
For those who use a sealed headband like these:




 All you need to do is comb out your fro and slip it on. If you wanna live on the edge like me and use a bra strap,  just comb out your fro and place the strap on your head from back to front, making sure the flowers are in front and snap the closures together. Voila your very own headband!!! I hope you enjoy making yours like I did mine.

Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
