Felt Flower Headband Tutorial






Supplies/links:
  • elastic ribbon (click on this link and in the search box on the top right of the screen, type "foldover elastic". All of the choices will pop up) or interchangeable headbands (you could buy these already made, in the size you want)
  • felt





Make your flower:





*My friend Brooke, makes these too, and she adds a fifth petal at the very end in the middle. After she told me about it, I tried it and really liked it. Some of mine in the pictures have 4 petals, and some have 5. If you want to add a fifth, put a dot of glue in the very center of your fifth petal and twist the felt underneath. Hold until the glue cools. Then glue it in center of your flower.


Make your Headband:
Approximate sizes to make your headbands:

Newborn-3 months: 12 1/2 inches
3 months+: 14 inches

Lizzie- this is great! I think that a lot of people are gonna be making these this weekend! So simple and SO CUTE! And Elle is just the most precious model ever. I love the pics- so pretty. And I love these headbands! Love you!

Emily said...

Yay, thanks Liz!! Perfect timing, I have a few friends having girl babies soon.

One more question...where do you find all the different colors of elastic ribbon?

They are so cute, thanks for posting the instructions!!!

Cute model too!

Lauren said...

Super cute! Thanks for sharing. Elle is so pretty. Can't wait to try on my little Claire!

Megan and Greg said...

Wow, that's pretty simple. They are so cute.

Penny Cluff said...

I just bought some of these at the county fair today. I had no idea how easy they were to make! I might try it. Thanks for the info. They look so cute.

Brenley said...

yay! I am so excited to make some. just in time too, since our baby girl was born yesterday!

AMY AND MIKEY said...

oh my gosh lizzie- I love all of them. I want to make one for myself- ha. I wonder if I could make one that is mroe adultish. I don't know if I jjust don't remember your other babies, or if Elle is just so fresh and new, but I feel like Elle is your cutest baby, but I thought that with Kate too. She is just so gorgeous and perfect. I want to eat her. that sounds so awful when you read it- but she is just so perfect- I want to squeeze adn eat her and kiss her to death.

Lisel A. Slie said...

Those are so cute! But not half as cute when they are not on Elle. These would be great for baby shower presents. I could use the flowers for my pins. :)

Rebecca said...

Okay, this post intimidates the crap out of me. Not the project but the pictures, the tutorial, the beauty of it all. It felt like I was reading a professional website, like Martha Stewart! Your photos are just so stunning! I'm so excited to see you. So excited. Love you.

Robin said...

Wherever did you get the time to do that??? Wow, you obviously don't pass out in bed during nap time. I love the bows and the cute pics of Elle!

What I would really like to see is the exact measurements for the elastic, instead of “desired length”.

Beautiful photography!

Is there any way you can tell me the size of the patterns used for the larger one
