Let your craftiness blossom with this colorful DIY. With minimal supplies and expense, you can make yourself a flower crown fit for any celebration- from garden parties to tropical luaus to music festivals and Mexican fiestas.

DIY Fiesta Flower Headband Supplies

We used beverage napkins for their smaller size but you could use luncheon napkins if that’s what you have on hand. If you use the larger size, some extra folding will be required. (See this tutorial for help with folding larger napkins.)

You will need:
