To some, Summer Solstice is just another warm summer day. But, in many cultures this holiday is a day to celebrate. Traditionally, this day is known for being the longest day of sunlight. Several countries celebrate this day with festivals and parties. We have decided to give you some tips to have the best Summer Solstice party wherever you live!
First, in Scandinavia many celebrate the Solstice with a festival of flowers, light, food and music. We have crafted a simple, yet dainty DIY floral headband. This can be worn on Summer Solstice or for any summer adventure! Let’s get started!
One: Gather all your materials. (Needle, thread, ruler, scissors, two hair bands and any floral trimming)
Two: Measure the floral trimming to around 17.5 inches.
Three: Take two hair bands. Place on top of each other.
Four: Pull inside strands outward and pull tight.
Five: Take floral trim and fold end over the first loop of the hair band.
Six: Sew the overlapped floral trim together so the hair band loop is secure. Repeat on the other side.
This is the perfect accessory for any summer look and radiates the Summer Solstice traditions.
