Flower Power can go to your head
The wonderful thing about May bank holiday weekend is that you really feel it is possible that summer is around the corner, come rain or shine. As part of our instagram stars and creatives programme, we’re delighted to share how to make Tanja Berlin’s brilliant crochet headband.
She has a gorgeous website (with english translation built in) and instagram spot called @Frau_apfelkern where she creates crochet figures, fruit and flowers and she explains to us in English and German how we can do it too. You know our gang we are a pushover if you say the words #craft #colour and #cute
We love her spring strawberry patch headband which she tells you how to make step by step on her blog, at the heart of it is a simple idea which allows you to freestyle and make your own mix of crochet deco and glue the individual pieces onto a headband in any order you wish.
Strawberry and curls anyone?
Start off by making simple crochet flowers
and fruit … the website gives you precise instructions and a whole lot more …
and why stop at a headband when you can make bracelets, buttonhole flowers, and customized jeans deco
Stuff you need:
A 2.5 crochet hook
headbands or clips
Hot glue gun or sew flowers in place by hand on a soft band
