I’m going to show you how to quickly create this Halloween flower headband.

Tools and materials:

  • Black spider headband
  • Gold flower headband
  • Pliers
  • Glue gun
  • Metallic powder
  • Mixing liquid
  • Paintbrush

To make this super easy, I’ve purchased two pre-made headbands from Claire’s.

Removing spiders

1. Remove the spiders

Take off the cheap tacky spiders from the black headband.

Removing flowers

2. Remove the flowers

Take off the flowers from the gold headband. 

Removing gold sticks

3. Remove the gold sticks

Use pliers to snip off the gold sticks.

Securing beads

4. Secure the beads with glue

Replace any of the gold beads that come off and secure them in place with a glue gun.

Gluing sticks to web

5. Glue the sticks to the web

Starting with the tallest ones, glue the sticks to the spider’s web.

Sticking them to the black wire means they’re not going to fall forward or backward.

You can place the smaller ones between the roses.

Adding spiders

6. Glue plastic spiders to the sticks

I picked up these cheap, plastic spiders that just look better than the felt versions we took off. Glue those to the sticks.

Mixing gold paint

7. Mix together gold paint

To make this Halloween flower headband look extra special, mix the gold powder with mixing liquid.

Painting rose edges

8. Paint the rose edges

Paint the edging of the roses with gold paint.

Painting skull

9. Paint the contours of the skull

Use what’s left on the bristles to create a dusting around the contours of the skull.
