{DIY Tutorial} Felted Flower Headband

Felt Flower Headband 14



My little sister is pregnant with a baby girl! Well, not my real little sister because I’m really an only child. I’m talking about my sorority little sister. Yes, I’m one of THOSE girls. But I totally wasn’t a stereotypical sorority girl and my sorority wasn’t a stereotypical sorority, whatever that means. Anyway, I get to finally get my girly fix in. I’ve been digging felted flowers lately and thought I would craft up something pretty for her little one.



Materials

Felt (3 different colors plus green for the leaves)

Glue Gun

Scissors

Alligator Clip

Headband

Directions

Step 1: Cut felt into a 1.5 x 11 inch strip. The longer your strip, the bigger your flower will be. I broke out my rotary cutter but scissors will work just fine.

Step 2: Cut slits into the felt strip.

Step 5: Cut a circle out of felt, about the same size as the 3 flowers bunched up together. Add a big dab of glue to the bottom of the flowers and stick them to the circle.

Step 8: Hot glue one side of the alligator clip to the circle base. Cut a strip of felt, the length of the circle base, and hot glue it in between the alligator clamps to secure the clip to the base.

Step 9: Attach the clip of flowers to a soft headband (or a jacket, purse, hat, etc.). Make your own baby headbands using the tutorial from Craftiness is not Optional.
