DIY // Lana Del Rey floral headphones

New DIY project: Lana Del Rey or Princess Leia headphones?

Okay, so I’m getting that creative itch to make something, and I’ve been inspired by two people: Lana Del Rey and Princess Leia (or, if you know what I’m talking about, Princess Vespa from Spaceballs).

In case you don’t follow either Lana Del Rey or Star Wars lore, here are the two pairs of headphones I covet.
