Every once in awhile, my daughter likes to be a little girly. And what better way to girl it up a bit, than with a pretty little flower on top of her head. This cute felt flower headband can be made in tons of colors and are great as gifts too. The best part is that they are super cheap. Like less than $.25 each.
To make these pretty headbands, you will need:
– Flower Template (I just free handed a five petal flower on some paper and cut it out.)
– Fabric Pen or Washable Marker
– Scissors (Preferably not chewed by the dog.)
– Hot Glue Gun
Trace your flower template onto the felt to make 6 flowers and cut each one out. Mark a “+” in the middle of one flower. (This will be the base and all of the other pieces will be attached to it.)
This next part is kind of hard to explain, so I whipped up a diagram in Photoshop to help. Hopefully, it doesn’t confuse you more. Starting with one flower (not the base,) fold it in half from right to left. Next, fold it again from bottom to top. It should have a right angle point.
Then, glue it into the spot labeled 1 on the diagram, lining it up with the “+” on the base piece.
Continue to fold the other flower pieces in the same fashion and use hot glue to attach them to the base in positions 2, 3, and 4.
The last flower piece will be folded the same as the previous ones, but it will be glued right into the middle of the flower with the point down.
After it is dry, pull of any stray pieces of glue and the headband is ready to wear. Doesn’t it look cute?!
