Quick Felt Flower Headband
I'm loving little felt crafts these days. It's easier to pull out a sheet of felt, a glue gun and some scissors into my limited space, than to get all the tools and supplies for other projects (including cards and scrapbooking)
For these flowers, I cut 3 circles from white felt. I didn't measure, but the 2 smaller ones were about 3 inches across, and the bigger one was about 3.5 inches. I cut each circle in a spiral pattern until I reached the middle. Starting with the middle, I wrapped the felt around itself until it looked like this.
A little hot glue secured the end and I sewed a fake pearl into the middle of each one using invisible thread.
For backing each flower, I cut a small circle of felt and glued it to the bottom.
I grabbed a black fabric headband and hot glued each flower to it. I should have glued them closer together so they would be overlapping. That way when the headband stretches a little, they are still touching. You should scroll quickly past the next photo, because I look truly dorky. I just felt the post wouldn't be complete without the obligatory "here--look at me wearing my creation" picture.
I think I'll go hide now.
