Meow Monday/Floral Halo Tutorial

Hey all! Thanks for the amazing feedback! I was out of town all weekend for a wedding, and it was nice to come home and see all the love.

This Meow Monday has my cat Phoebe sitting..well.. awkwardly. I'm not quite sure how this is comfy, but she must have liked it!

Here is an awesome tutorial I found on The link to this article is Here!
It is super easy to make, and headbands and halo's are definitely in right now! Enjoy!

You’ll need:
- 2 pieces of 16 or 18 gauge floral cloth wire
- a piece of 4 x 4″ green felt
- a glue gun
- a pair of scissors
You’ll start by cutting 2 circles from the piece of felt at approximately 2″ in diameter. Form the wires of your halo by molding and bending each piece into a half circle. Lay the two half circles opposite of each other to create a single circle, laying it over the top of your head to check the fit. Wrap floral tape over 2 sections of overlapping wire at 11 o’clock and 3 o’clock. Trim any overlapping pieces with the wire cutters. (Click images to enlarge)
Using the wire cutters, cut the stem off the flower making sure the back is flat. Glue one of the felt circles to the back of the flower. Lay the 3 o’clock section of the halo on the backside of the flower. Sandwich the halo between the flower and the second felt circle with plenty of glue. As your pressing the two felt circles together, pull the halo up on its side, making it stand perpendicular to the back of the flower. Insert glue into any openings, making sure the two felt circles are sealed together.
The possibilities are endless with this as you can wrap flowers around half or the entire perimeter of the halo, reinforcing with glue. Or if wearing a halo just isn’t your thing, make a hair pin or brooch by gluing a large bobby pin or a pin back to the back of the first felt cutout.
Your flower halo is ready to wear!
