DIY Dollar Store Floral Headbands


This DIY Dollar Store Floral Headband will take you from winter into spring flawlessly!


So I've been asked, why do you like crafting things as much as you do? Let me go into a little backstory. As you might know, that's if you've been a regular reader, or just happened to be going through posts, I suffer with depression. Depression is a severe illness and not one to be taken lightly. My depression started almost 5 years ago when my father died and became even more compounded when my mother passed away a few years later. I however have an amazing therapist. It was during one of our sessions that she recommended doing things with my hands. She suggested knitting, crocheting or even taking up pottery. I am going to be honest with you, I thought she was full of sh*t, but I figured, what would it hurt? What she suggested however was totally out of my league. While I knew how to crochet, I did not know how to knit and or to potter. I ALSO DID NOT HAVE HOURS TO SPEND DOING ANY OF THOSE! As a mother of 4 with 3 of them being at home, I don't have the countless hours to spend doing any craft, and that's why my crafts usually take my readers 30 minutes or less. Today's Dollar Store Floral Headband will actually take you about 2 minutes from start to finish.

DIY Dollar Store Headbands

I am going to be honest before I start with this tutorial. I'm even ashamed to call it a tutorial because it's two simple steps and as I mentioned, it takes about 2 minutes, unless of course you plan on making as many as you can. This is also one of the least expensive crafts I've done as all materials were bought at the dollar store, thus the name. I'm not even going to insult your intelligence by adding step by step photos either. So without further ado - here goes!

Supplies Needed:

Headbands (I purchased the ones with the holes)
Fake Flowers
Glue Gun


Step 1: Gather your supplies together. Separate the flowers that you want to use and decide which you'll be using on which headband. Cut the stem of the flower as short as you can go. I purchased the headbands with the holes (3pk) so that the end of the flower can go in seamlessly and easily into the hole on the headband.

Step 2: With your glue gun attach the flower to the headband. Secure and you're done! I did two of them with one flower and another with three (shown in first photo) so that I could have a variety.


Can you believe how easy that was to do? It's a great way to bring some life back into those old headbands you may even have laying around the house. I love looking at flowers and with spring here for most of us, why not add a few to your hair?


I think they look adorable in Madison's hair. Don't mind her, she said I was "interrupting" her play time. So pick up a few flowers and some headbands and make this super easy DIY Dollar Store Floral Headband.

Are you excited for spring?

  1. Are you kidding me with this cuteness? Scarlet loves headbands - the bigger and brighter, the better. In fact, she's so small that we nearly couldn't see her in the all-school choir concert, but she was wearing a headband like this. So we found her! I'm headed to the dollar store over the weekend. I need one of these!

  2. This is super cute and you can literally make a floral headband to go with every outfit with all the choices! This is starting to be headband wearing time for my daughter - enough with the winter hats, spring is finally here and let the head show!

  8. Who knew how easy this was? Not me! Headbands + silk flowers = so much cuteness. I'm not so crafty, even though I try to be but I can totally see where having something to focus on can help with depression. With my daughter loving headbands, I'll stop by the Dollar Store and pick up the items and try to make one. I'd say a 2 minute craft might be something I can accomplish. I might even have to make more than one!

  20. These are really adorable. I like how much can be done from things found in the dollar stores. It's a lot cheaper to use those materials than it is to buy one already made. Plus, we can put our own touch on it.

  27. I love flower crowns! This is such a cute headband and I love that everything is from the dollar store

  41. That was seriously EASY to do (okay I didn't make it, but just reading the steps). I also think that it's great you found an outlet, something for you to do to help you with depression. I also suffer from depression (started as PPD), then just seemed to get worse over the years of losing both of my parents as well. So, I understand your pain! hugs my friend!
