These Headbands Are Like A Snapchat Filter IRL
Now you can literally become the butterfly filter.
Let’s be honest: there’s nothing more amusing than staring at yourself in different Snapchat filters. You’ll find any excuse to send a luminously glowing Snap of yourself to your crush, courtesy of an amazing flower crown filter.
Long before flower crowns were a music festival staple, Ukrainian women wore them as a sign of purity. Well, these crowns of glory are making a modern-day comeback in the form of serious sartorial statement pieces.
As proof positive, artist Iryna Osinchuck-Chajka of Eten Iren creates crowns that look like stunning Snapchat filters come to life. The twist? She uses butterflies!
Spoiler alert: they’re out-of-this-world amazing.
The ethereal headpieces are crafted with EVA foam, a flexible material that can be bent multiple ways.
The artist hand-cuts the butterflies, then brings them to life by painting intricate patterns on their wings.
Next, she attaches the butterflies to wire to create a magnificent crown.
It looks like something straight out of a fairytale.
They’re perfect for a special occasion—or any other day, because WHY NOT?
A variety of crowns are sold on Etsy for $27.60.
