Want to make an adorable headband? Over the past few weeks I’ve been making fabric flowers like crazy. They are really easy to make and turn out adorable.
First roll out your fabric and cut a 1 and 1/2 inch strip. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
Then tie one end in a knot. Glue the small end to the knot. You can use fabric glue for this….but I used hot glue because that’s what I had on hand.
From there start wrapping the fabric around the knot to form a flower. Secure it with glue every inch or so.
And just keep going. I found it looks best if you twist the fabric here and there so you can see the underside.
Once you are done glue the last inch or so of fabric to the back of the flower.
I got a little carried away and made a ton!
To make a headband you’ll need pretty elastic. I was able to find mine at a local fabric shop. I also found some white elastic at Joann’s Fabric.
I made one of these for myself too! I didn’t get a chance to take photos of this kind of flower but it’s really easy. Just cut a bunch of 2 inch circles out of your fabric. Use one of them as a base for your flower. Then take your circles and fold them in half. Then fold them in half again and secure with a little glue. Then place a drop of glue on the point of your flower and glue it to the base. Keep doing this over and over until your flower is full. Remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful!
