Homemade Spray Painted Flower Headbands- No Sewing Required!

Everywhere I go I see ladies with gorgeous flower headbands.  I decided to come up with my own versions of this popular trend.  I dolled up ordinary fake roses by re-arranging the flower and using metallic spray paint.  Stay tuned for more to come!  I made oodles.  If you are interested in purchasing one ($7- there are many varieties) email me at creativestirrings@gmail.com. I hope you enjoy!

This is the flower I originally used to make this headband.

Turn the flower upside down and disassemble the pieces.

Once you have removed the plastic pieces put the flower back together only using the top and bottom plastic pieces (the pieces you don't use are shown beside the flower above).  *I flipped most of my petals so that they were facing downwards.  The bottom petal is facing upwards.  If you want an extremely flat flower glue all the petals down and press in-between a book until it has dried.

Using plastic gloves spray paint your flowers making sure to cover all sides; allow to dry.

For the middle of the flower you can purchase buttons, beads, or make your own button.  You can buy these 'make your own' cover buttons at most craft stores.  Just choose a desired fabric and follow the instructions.  It takes less than a minute to make one button.

Secure your flower to your head band or a hair clip using a hot glue gun, craft glue, or super glue.  Congratulations!
