How to make a goddess headband


Myra Callan of Twigs and Honey put together this DIY project for the Bride's Guide and I just had to share it with you.

What they said about her: "Myra started her line of gorgeous accessories as a side project and outlet for her creativity. This year is her second anniversary as a full-time creator of lovely pieces that blend vintage and modern styles geared toward accenting one's natural beauty. The pieces are all handmade using materials that can range from recycled wedding dresses, decadent laces, feathers, and silks. Whimsical and fun, Twigs and Honey pieces help add that extra something to any look. Check out all her gorgeous accessories on her shop and follow her on her blog. She made this goddess headband just for us and was kind enough to send along a little how-to (read on)!"
