How to Crochet Tutorial: Rose Flower Headband & Floral Wedding Bouquet

How to Crochet Tutorial: Rose Flower Headband & Floral Wedding Bouquet

On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me….Flowers! Haha! I made a holiday headband using the same flower design I used in my bridal bouquets for my wedding earlier this year! I used a small bead detail to adorn the center for the perfect touch! Don’t need a headband? Don’t worry, this flower design is perfect for so many other projects!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make the flowers and leaves:

Crochet Tutorial: Destiny Headband

Crochet Tutorial: Destiny Headband

If you are following me on my blog or any social media, you will recall that I released my Link to the Past Phrygian Cap last week as Part One of the Halloween cosplay costume designs that I am creating for Nate and myself.

Today, Part Two of the costume set, is this Destiny Headband. This is a bit of a tedious process using thin thread and crocheting around wire, but the results are worth the efforts! Continue to stay tuned to more great patterns along the way to complete one or both of my costume series!

Not into the costume idea? Make a headband with just leaves! You could also use the leaf applique separately for flowers or anywhere you would need to add a decorative embellishment.
