I spent my morning shopping for a Birthday party my child was attending. As usual, I procrastinated to the last minute because I forgot. I'm good like that. I already had something in mind for the gift but when I got to the store I found out how much they cost and I was thoroughly miffed. Really? Six dollars for a headband? I don't think so. I'll make my own thank you. And so I went home to scrounge for some materials.
Nothing special as usual and all things that I had on hand. I have found that fabric scraps are really useful for small projects. For this project I used a scrap of t-shirt that I had on hand but you can use whatever you would like.
First, cut a strip of fabric about 1.5-2 inches wide and then cut them out into squares.
Depending on how large you want your flower will determine how many squares to cut. For mine I wanted a layered look that would not end up flat so I cut out 5 large squares and 4 smaller squares.
To assemble the petals, fold your square in half diagonally.
Put a dot of glue at the base of the triangle in the center and glue one side down. Repeat on the other side.
On the folded straight edge, place glue on one half of the base and then glue it to the other half of the base.
Repeat this for all of your petals.
Glue your petals together.
If you want your flower layered but not too thick then don't glue them too close together in the center. I wanted mine a little thicker so I glued mine close together on the bottom layer and the top layer. Glue the top layer petals to the bottom layer and then add embellishments to the center.
Glue the flower to your headband, elastic or clip.
That's it. If this inspires you to make your own, please link back to us and share the blog lovin.
