Dear Annabelle, I am very interested in your 1″ sequin, 2″ stretch lace interchangeable and stretch velvet headbands to make as flapper headbands for my wedding guests. I’m a bit concerned about the stretchiness of the headbands and if they will fit on an adult head. Do you have a picture of an adult wearing the headbands? Janelle, Arvada CO
What a fantastic wedding idea! I love the whole ‘roaring 20’s’ theme and I think it would look so romantic to give each of your guests a special flapper headband. Picture perfect! Of the headbands you mentioned, the best one for adult wear on the flapper theme would be the 1″ sequin headband.
As a side note, most of our Wholesale Girls headbands are stretchy enough to fit on adults! Sometimes people forget that our craft supplies are not just for little girls – we have many items that would be perfect for making an adult costume or hair accessory.
Anyway, I decided to whip up a flapper headband with our 1″ sequin headband in black! You could use this headband as is for a simple look, or, you could add on an accessory to make it even more vintage feeling. I made this feather clip using a marabou fluff puff with clip in ivory, a burgundy pansy and a rhinestone embellishment. All said and done the whole headband would cost just under $3.00 to make and all it took was a few minutes of hot gluing it all together! Our resident crafter Ariel was kind enough to model it for me so you could see what the finished product looked like.
