flower power

I’m finally getting around to ordering Micah’s birth announcements to send out to family and close friends and I’m extremely excited about it.

Before doing so, I had been brainstorming on ways to come up with a fun theme that would also include big sis Neriah. With the official start of summer being a few days away I thought an “in bloom” theme would be fitting because the word itself is significant of so many new beginnings currently taking place in our lives as a family, more on that in another post.

As you know, I love a good accessory, headbands specifically! The simplest of details go a long way. I also love a good DIY project. I haven’t done or shared a whole lot of them on the blog, but I plan on doing so in the coming months.

To go along with Micah Sage’s birth announcement I made simple flower crowns that cost next to nothing. Mind you, I’m usually the mom that would usually  just order them online, but with my mom being here I’ve had lots of spare time. Plus, the joy of making them myself was rewarding.

Below is a step by step pictorial of how you can achieve this simple DIY flower crown.

As you can see I did not use the white elastic band pictured above for the crowns. I do plan on making another one for Micah as I find the wired “yarn” to be a little too rough for her sensitive head. For longer wear on infants I would suggest something softer, a nice ribbon would work too.

Got some dope DIY ideas you want to share with moi? Dop ’em in the comment section below!

p.s. this whole project cost less than 10$

Until next time!
