The other day I made some headbands with some friends from church. They were so fun and easy so I thought I’d share how to make them.

You’ll need:

  • 8-10 circles in varying sizes and fabrics (different textures make for a fun headband). My largest was about 3 inches across but make your largest however large (or small) you want. Tip: no need for perfect circles (in fact, they are cuter if the circles aren’t perfect).
  • Small piece of felt
  • Needle and thread
  • bead(s)
  • headband

Flower headband

Stack your circles from largest to smallest. With your needle and thread, stitch an x in the center.

Fold your stack in half and make a stitch (or two). Fold your stack in half the other way and make another stitch (or two).

Baste stitch through the bottom layers around the center of your circle. (I baste stitch through most of the layers, minus the top 2 or 3.)

Pull thread tight to scrunch up flower to your liking. Sew bead(s) in the center.

Take your felt and sew onto the back of your flower with the headband sandwiched between. If you are worried about the flower moving around you can also hot glue the flower to the headband. And you are done! Enjoy!
