I’ve wanted a bohemian headpiece for a long time now. You’ve seen the flower headbands and such that are all over the music festivals and streets of New York for the past year, yes? Well I’ll let you in on a little secret: they are much less expensive when you DIY rather than buying them from Forever 21 (boring and basic) or Etsy (super expensive)! I've made 4 of these already because every time I wear mine at an event someone asks me where I bought it and I end up bringing them one next time I see them! It's a very thoughtful and simple gift to bring last minute! So without further ado, I will show you how to make this headpiece so that you can look like a beautiful bohemian goddess (without breaking the bank) next time you go to an event!
Total time required: 20 minutes
Difficulty Level: Easy
Cost to make: $4.00 per headpiece
List of materials (see picture): chain, jump rings, pliers (if necessary), crystals/beads/charms, scissors
Materials all bought at Joann Fabrics (see coupon)
Tips: When buying crystals/beads make sure the space in the center is big enough to fit the jump ring through. You can buy all of the materials needed at any craft store. The chain package I bought makes about 3 headpieces. Tutorial is made simpler with a useful partner to help!

Step 1: Take two jump rings and open using pliers (or fingers/scissors). Set on table for later use.
Step 2: Unravel the chain you purchased and measure it around the circumference of your head.
Step 3: Hold where chain connects (fits). Remove from head. – Do not cut chain yet.
Step 4: Attach first jump ring to meeting place of the two chain pieces. Add crystal to jump ring and close.
Step 5: Place measured chain back onto your head (still attached with unraveled chain)
Step 6: Pull the unraveled chain directly down center of head (part hair where it will lay) to where it meets with the pre-measured circumference chain.
Step 7: Hold where chain connects (fits). Remove from head. Attach jump ring to meeting place of the two chain pieces.
Step 8: Add crystal to jump ring and close. Cut the excess (unraveled) chain still attached using scissors.
