Felt Flower Headband for Fall


I couldn't resist making some more of these sweet felt flowers. With Fall right around the corner I decided to go with earth tones. This one is about half the size of the original one I made and is attached (via hot glue gun) to a cloth covered headband. It will be perfect for those crazy-hair mornings dropping the kids off at school.


I made a few changes to the pattern this time. Instead of having the sharp corners like this that the original tutorial called for...

I cut the petals a bit rounder or softer like this. I think it makes a nice difference in the finished product.


I also made them smaller because I don't really want to wear a ginormous flower on my head like a hat. Although if I'd been invited to the Royal Wedding I would definitely have worn one.

How did you do the center of your flower? The original tutorial you link to (on holidash.com) uses fabric cut with pinking shears, but yours looks different and I like it better! Email response to ilikenerds@gmail.com please!

Hi Rachel, For the center, I cut a strip of felt a few inches long. I made the top wavy and random, then rolled it up, putting dabs of glue along the way, then glued it to the center.

Thanks for the question!
