flax & twine: Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorial Theses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones. I know Allie won’t want to take them off. Who doesn’t love the idea of diamonds glittering in your hair? Really you can do this technique with most trimmed beads. I fell in love with the idea of the rhinestones after seeing Green Eyed Monster’s Rhinstone bangles - love these. Material: Plastic headband DMC Pearl Cotton Embroidery Thread Approx. 18″ of beaded trim with attachments in between each stone or bead (rhinestones, crystal beads, etc) Craft glue or hot glue gun Time: 1 hour Attach beginning of floss to inside of headband with craft glue or hot glue gun. Wrap floss around headband beginning at one end. You can wrap a number of times (5-7) quickly and then push strands together snugly, careful not to overlap the strands. When you get to the teeth, decide the maximum number of times you can wrap between each tooth and do that consistently through the toothed portion.

DIY: How to Make Flower Crowns Flower crowns have been taking the world (and our Pinterest feeds) by storm recently. Whether it’s a music festival, a wedding or just an afternoon out with your besties, flower crowns seem to be the go-to accessory nowadays, and we are pretty happy about it. There’s something whimsical and oh-so-girly about flower crowns. So when we got together for our last LC.com photoshoot we knew we wanted to put together a how-to on the topic. Luckily for us, our editor-in-chief Lauren has quite the knack for building these beautiful crowns (what can’t she do, right?!). With Lauren at the helm, we sat down for a flower crown building session. Not bad, right? Supplies: floral wire (we used this one)floral tape (you can buy some here)floral wire cuttersgreeneryflowers (real of faux, your choice!) For our flowers we used Lauren’s garden roses, dahlias and an assortment of other beautiful blooms. How gorgeous is this dahlia from Lauren’s garden? Instructions: 1. 2. 3. 4. XO Team LC

Put a few drops of super glue onto the tip of the folded part and insert it into the pearl. Allow it to dry completely. Continue to wrap tightly 5-6 times. Now, secure the pearl by wrapping the other side around the bottom half of the pin.

Knowing Boho Jewelry Better - Glam Bistro When talking about fashion and the word ‘Bohemian’ or ‘Boho’ comes about, one would immediately think layered, free flowing and natural because these are what would best describe the Bohemian style and fashion. Along with bohemian clothing, one other key to successfully dressing in full Boho style is the use of Boho jewelry. Boho jewelry has distinct characteristics. All natural – as mentioned previously, Boho jewelry is often made from things that are found in nature. Layered – the same trend on layering Bohemian clothing applies to Boho jewelry. Earthy colors – brown, bronze, gold, silver, rosegold, tan, taupe – these are just some of the colors that you will find in Boho jewelry. Mismatched jewelry – there is really no matching and pairing required when it comes to Boho jewelry. Accessorizing with Bohemian jewelry is not really all that difficult, you see.
