FUNNY HAT FRIDAY: Birds in Paradise: Avian Flower Crown

When I was traveling in Kuala Lumpur at the beginning of 2014, I came a cross a vendor selling beautiful flower crowns with braided ties at the back. Some of them had little birds in them, which delighted me immensely, and I knew I had to get my hands on something similar.

These particular headbands were a bit pricier than I wanted to pay ($25AUD for birdless, $30 for birds) and so as usual, I decided to DIY it. This would also give me the gratification of being able to state that it was ME who made it when asked by friends (hehe)

I intended to make the flower crown myself as I had done previously (tutorial here), but lo and behold, I found a $5 one at Sportsgirl. For the cost of time and materials, sometimes it’s better off just to buy.

The birds are foam, and were a little pricy (I should start shopping craft supplies online) but it was worth it. Using wire (recycled paperclips) and ordinary PVA glue (I’m too cheap for E6000!) I was able to secure the birds to the headband and make this durable little number in time for Groovin’ The Moo 2014 last year
