I think I’m in love with this halo! It is so pretty and fun. This is my niece, Jordyn, and she completely agrees. She had tons of fun playing and modeling this for me. She said she felt like a fairy queen.
Would you like to know how to make some of these for your own daughters, nieces, granddaughters or other little friends? Let’s get started!
6 yards 6″ Emerald Green Tulle
2 yard 6″ Lime Green Tulle
1 yard each 3/8″ grosgrain ribbon in 4 colors of your choice (I used shocking pink, light pink, lavender, purple, and lime green)
6 Rolled Rosette Flowers that coordinate with your ribbon choices (I used hot pink, purple, lavender and light pink)
Round Headband Base of some sort (Mine is a bridal halo I got in the bridal section of a craft store a long time ago). If I didn’t have this, I could have easily used a 1/2″ zip tie or something similar.
Hot Glue Gun
Cut all of your tulle into about 4″ lengths, then cut those in half so you have two pieces, each 3″ wide. You should have a good size stack of 3″ X 4″ tulle pieces (I had a picture of this step, but I must have deleted it. Woops, sorry!). I’m guessing you’ll have about 140+ pieces. You may not use them all, depending on the size of your halo base, but you will use most.
Begin tying your tulle pieces to your round halo base. I tied a double knot so they won’t come undone.
Continue doing this until you have about 1.5″ left at the end. I tied 4-5 pieces of the emerald green, then 2 pieces of the lime.
Tie your ribbon pieces into that small 1.5″ section you left open at the end. Then fill in any blank spaces with a bit of tulle.
Use your hot glue gun to attach three of your rolled rosette flowers over the ribbon tails.
Hot glue the other three rolled rosette flowers to three evenly spaced spots on your halo as shown below.
Now you just need to trim up your ends on the ribbon and shape/trim the tulle to your liking. I used a lighter to heat seal the ends of the grosgrain ribbon so that they will not fray.
And your done! I think your girls are going to love it! I know Jordyn does!
