Look summery fantastic fast with this headband. Go here to download the free template.

You will need: a printer; printer paper or thin card; coloured paper or card; glue; scissors; pompoms, beads or buttons to embellish; a gold pen or foiled gold paper/card (optional).

Step 1:

Print out the flowers and leaves onto paper or thin card and cut them out.

Step 2:

Cut a thin strip of coloured paper/thin card to make the headband. Make sure it is long enough to go around your head.


Step 3:

To create a 3D effect with the flowers, fold the flower in half one way, and then open it up and fold it in half the other way. For the flowers with more than 4 petals, simply fold the petals another two times until all the petals have a crease line in them.


Step 4:

Overlap the flowers by putting one on top of another and finish by adding a pompom, bead or button in the centre. Alternatively, you could cut out circles of gold paper or card and stick these down or add some gold pen.

Step 5:

Each leaf has a front and back. Stick the two pieces together and fold the leaf in the middle at a slight angle.

Step 6:

Now assemble your headdress by sticking on the leaves and flowers. Stick the ends of the headband together and it’s ready to wear.
