I made these great flower headbands for a photo shoot last year and I finally made another one last week so that I could share the tutorial with you! I absolutely love the drama and sophistication that these flowers add for a special occasion. Ready to make one?
You will need a very lightweight synthetic material, I used the lining from an old bridesmaid dress. Why synthetic? So that it will melt when you singe the edges of the flower petals rather than burn. The lighter the fabric, the more it will curl when you singe around the petals. Thicker fabrics singe, but retain more of a flat shape and aren’t suitable for this type of flower. You won’t need more than 1/8 yard of fabric though, so if you’re not sure, just buy small amounts of a variety of synthetics. Once you’ve experimented a little at home, you’ll have a better idea which fabric to use in the future.
