Felt Flower Headbands

Felt Flower Headbands

Ah to have little girls.  I have to admit, I love it.  Little Lady is 3 and is such princess-loving girly girl.  Baby Girl is only 3 months but that means I can dress her any way I please…until she figures out how to protest or do it for herself.

Over the years I’ve purchased adorable hair bows for my girls from various local crafters and Etsy shops. These are very talented ladies and I know I cannot create the elaborate pieces they do, but I thought I’d try my hand at simple layered flower.

Quick no-sew felt flower tutorial

I picked up a couple of pieces of felt at the craft store along with some elastic and a sparkly headband. The other supplies I had on hand.

I followed this tutorial from Ruffles And Stuff to create the flowers.

First I cut 7 circles of felt about the size that I wanted the final flower to be.  Then I cut one smaller circle to use as my base.

I made two flowers. The first I cut with scissors, the second I cut using a circle die in my Big Shot (affiliate link).  The die cut circles make for a much cleaner looking flower.

I then took a circle, folded it in quarters and cut off the pointed tip.

Using a hot glue gun I stuck the folded circles to the base, 4 fit snugly together for the first layer. I then added the three remaining folded circles on top.

I played around with the placement and direction of the folds. I like it best when they are all facing the same direction.

That’s the basic flower.  I added a jewel to the middle to jazz it up a bit.

I hot glued each flower to the headbands.

For the elastic baby headband I measured it around her head first making sure it wasn’t too tight, then hot glued the ends together.

Little Lady decided she needs a flower in every color. Glad she likes it!  (although she wouldn’t sit still for a picture)

Do you have girls?  Have you tried your hand at making hair accessories or do you buy them?
