By now you all know that I’m obsessed with Beyoncé :) So, of course, I freaked out over the amazing paparazzi photo shoot of her, Jay and Blue on vacation in Hawaii. I mean come on, she is just so flawless and down right babe’n in that long sleeve swimsuit and lemon accessories. There are still no sources on where she picked up this quirky take on the flower crown, which gave us even more of a reason to DIY our own. You can rock this Beyoncé-inspired piece to your next festival or beach day this summer, and if you are as obsessed with Bey as I am, you can pair it with a lemonade-inspired crop top. P.S. Check out the live video of me and Lisa making this headband on Facebook. No joke, it will only take you about 10 minutes to make!
Materials + Tools:
— small white flowers
— small lemons
— hot glue gun
1. Remove white flowers from stems and glue onto the crown of the headband.
2. Hot glue leaves onto lemons and then attach to the headband.
To create your lemon headband, start by laying down a base of small white flowers. Attach leaves to your lemons and then glue around the crown of the headband. Fill in empty spots with more white flowers or leaves.
These headbands are so easy to make and the supplies cost about $20 for four headbands. This is a great take on the flower crown for you and your gal pals to make for festival season.
Bey rocked a cute lemon sticker on her phone while she took selfies on the beach, so we needed to have that too :) Print out the lemons on sticker paper and stick them on everything!
In honor of Beyoncé’s trip to Hawaii, I paired this lemon headband with a romper my mom bought herself (in Hawaii) on her 40th birthday. She passed it to me when I was in high school and every year I pray that it still fits me when I’m 40!
Selfie time *mwah*!
