  • These fake flower headbands and boutonnieres are super cute, and don’t require crazy scary (or spendy) supplies.

  • SUPPLIES

fake daisies (leaves optional)
elastic headbands

felt
pin button backs

Disassemble your daisies. For most brands of fake flowers, this will simply involve popping the tops of the daisies from the straw-like stems.

  • How to Make Boutonnieres

Heat up your glue gun, and cut some white felt into small rectangles. Put some hot glue on a button back and stick a felt rectangle to it. Next, apply a generous layer of hot glue to the other side of the felt and stick a flower top to it. Tightly hold together until dry

  • See how much glue I used below? Since the backs of the daisies aren’t nice and flat, lots of glue is the key to getting them to stick to the flat button back.

  • How to Make Headbands

Just like with the boutonnieres, your glue gun should we warmed up, and you should have some felt cut into rectangles. Place a daisy head face down on your table and lay an elastic headband on it as shown.

  • Slather a thick layer of hot glue over both the headband and flower, then lay a felt rectangle on top. Also like the boutonnieres, hold the whole mess in place until the glue hardens (which won’t take long).

  • I played around with a few variations on the headband idea, but my favorite was incorporating more flowers and the leaves from the fake flowers.

  • To incorporate more flower tops, simply use a longer felt rectangle to adhere the flowers to a headband. To include leaves, hot glue them to the back of the felt piece after the flower, headband and felt backing are secure.
