How gorgeous is this flower headband made entirely from sculpey?!?! I wish I could take credit for it, but it was actually the inspired creation of an amazing nine year old student in my sculpey class. I know! Kids are amazing and I am totally in love with this headband. It definitely took some time and careful planning, which is one of the reasons I love it so much. She thought about all the layers, paid close attention to color choices and took her time to get each diamond shape just right. I just love love love it!
Each diamond was cut from sculpey first pressed in a craft machine. You can find a link to the sculpey craft machine here. The top orange layer was done first and then each color layer was attached from the bottom side in between the petals. The flower was then baked and attached to the headband with a glue gun. You can find the headband at most drugstores or supermarkets. A little blue flattened ball was added to the center of the flower for the final touch. It was a totally clever project that required great attention to detail and patience. I absolutely love it and am so proud of my sculpey students!!
This is so beautiful! I can’t wait to try making some for my daughters. How fun!
Thanks Meredith! It’s such a beautiful project. It can be done in mini versions as well and go on barrettes. We are trying a few as well. Still amazed at my students!
OH MY WORD. THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING EVAAAAR. SORRY FOR THE SHOUTING BUT IT IS JUST THAT COOL!!!!!
AGREED!!! : )
This is unbelievable!! I love it!!! Must be one special and talented girl!!!
She’s AMAZING! : )
How amazing!!! I can’t wait to show my girls…the world of sculpey has opened up to us. How long did this take? She did such a good job layering, and the colors are a perfect combo. So happy and Springy! Well done!! xo Bar
I know!!! She did an amazing job. I think it took three 45 minute sessions but she did some other things as she worked. I think it can be done in about an hour or so. I think your girls would love something like this right? It’s so pretty : )
