Fabric Flower Headband

IMG_0898
Bring on the green!  With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I think it’s time to accessorize my little one.  She had this simple green headband among her collection of hair bows.  Using some green fabric I had picked up, I made this simple green flower.

Start by cutting out a felt circle that is about 1 – 1 1/2” across.  (I cut out several because I have plans to use them for an additional St. Patrick’s Day themed creation…that project is soon to come!).  Then, you’ll need to cut out a BUNCH of circles in the color of fabric you want your flower to be…..yeah green!  Note:  Your circles do not need to be perfect.  I cut eight circles out at a time to make the process go a little quicker.

Then, scrunch up each individual circle and apply a small amount of hot glue to the end.

Stick the scrunched circle to the middle of your felt circle.

Continue with this process, adding more scrunched circles around your beginning center one.

As you work your way away from the center, your flower will start to take place.

Your finished product will completely cover the felt beneath it.  Now you’re ready to attach it to your headband.

Just apply a small amount of hot glue to the center of the underside of the flower.  I applied the flower off to the side so that it wasn’t sitting directly on top of her head.  Once it dried, we had to try it out!

The true test will come this Thursday….will she she wear her Momma’s latest creation or will she scream, “No!” and rip it off?!?!  =)   Since she is quickly approaching 2, I’m guessing the latter.  Life with a feisty toddler definitely keeps me on my toes!
