I made some headbands for my eight year old cousin’s birthday this summer. Her 16 year old sister (my other cousin) was really impressed with them so I decided to make some for her Christmas. This is a super easy gift and it took me less than an hour to make all three.
Here’s what you need to make these headbands
Headbands- any kind but plastic will work (the glue gun can melt plastic- it’s happened to me before)
roll of lace
For the purple flower headband, find some fake flowers with lots of petals. I used a hydrangea.
Pull the petals off of the stem and remove the inside piece. You can discard the inside pieces or save for a future use. I used six petals. Two were bigger than the others.
Cut two small round pieces of felt. You will glue the petals to one piece so it should be small enough that you won’t see it under the petals. Take the biggest petal and glue it with the hot glue to the piece of felt.
Continue to glue and stack your petals. If you alternate the orientation of the petals you will get a fuller flower. Finish it off with a rhinestone in the middle to cover up the hole in the center.
Then place the second felt circle on top to make it look finished and keep the headband in place.
For the lace headband I started with this roll of lace ribbon.
I rolled the lace into a circle and continued rolling until it formed a flower. I did a practice roll first to see how full I wanted the flower before I cut a piece off. As I rolled the lace I glued every so often to keep the lace in the right shape. Once I was done rolling, I glued three pearl beads in the center.
Another Christmas gift crossed of the list.
