Festival season and moonlit backyard parties are approaching, so before you go out and drop a pretty penny on headwear, let TRIM help you out with some DIY headwear tips and tricks!

 

Flower Crowns

Before you start, you will need a garland of fake flowers from any kind of craft store and a hot glue gun. First, remove the flowers from the fake stem, but you’ll need the stem still so be sure not to throw it away! Next, you will need to form the fake stem in a circle for the crown, but don’t forget to measure it so it will be the right size for your head. After insuring that the stem crown will fit properly, hot glue the ends together so that it is secure, and begin to glue on the flowers and leaves however you would like them arranged, and you have yourself a gorgeous, handmade flower crown!

Head Chains

For the head chain DIY, you will need chains, small circle clips to connect the chains, and tweezers or pliers. First, take one chain and determine how long you want it to droop on the front and back of your head, and do the same for the chains that droop along the side. Once you’ve determined the lengths that work for you, clip the various chains together in the front using the small circle clip, and do the same in the back.

 

Pony Tail Chain

The same materials that are used for the first head chain can be used for this ponytail chain, with one additional material being bobby pins to pin it to the ponytail. Much like the head chain, the first step is to determine how long you want the chains to fall along your ponytail, and then make the next two chains about an inch and two inches longer than your initial chain. Use the small clips to keep the chains in place, and then fasten them to a bobby pin so that you will be able to clip it into your hair.

 

Keep it creative,
