The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, but have you picked out what you’re going to wear? Amidst the hustle and bustle of shopping for gifts, baking cookies, and wrapping presents, it’s tough to find enough time to put together a festive holiday outfit that is sure to impress. If you’re short on time but still want to make a statement, this DIY is made for you! Most Michaels stores are open today with their holiday goodies on sale, so you can swing by to pick up all the materials and whip up this festive flower crown DIY in no time!
- 7 Poinsettia Flowers*
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Needle & thread
- Thin elastic strip
First, plug in the hot glue gun. Then measure the elastic to wrap around your head snugly and sew it closed. Trim off any excess. Next, prepare the flowers by removing them from the stems and trimming off the bit of excess stem on the back of the bloom so that it will lay flat on the elastic. Begin arranging the flowers around the elastic strip and adhere them with hot glue. It helps to have the band stretched while you are gluing so that you get the spacing right for when the crown will be atop your head. Believe it or not, I stretched the crown around an electric kettle, which actually worked surprisingly well!
The final step is to put the crown on and be sure the flowers are all laying flat and that the elastic isn’t visible in between each of the flowers. Glue petals to each other as needed to help close the gaps.
*I left an empty space on the back of my crown to give myself the flexibility in case I decide to go with an updo for the festivities tomorrow, but if you’d rather it go all the way around, just add at a few extra flowers to the band from what is listed in the supplies.
