I chose to make wrapped flowers this time instead of the singed edge ones I tried last time. The result is absolutely beautiful!
Here is how you too can make this super easy craft!
- organza type material (I just used a left-over piece so I don't remember exactly what it is.)
- pearl beads
- needle & thread
- glue gun and glue sticks
|The fabric is soft and fluttery.|
Cut the fabric into 2" wide strips.
Cut the felt into circles. I made a graduated set with one large, two medium, and two small circles.
Measure the fabric strips. The large circle used a whole strip. The medium circles used strips with 6" trimmed off. The small circles were 1/2 a strip.
Tie a knot in one end of the strip and begin wrapping and stitching with the needle and thread.
Add the pearl beads to the center of the roses after you finish wrapping and stitching. The large flower used 6 beads, the medium roses used 5 beads each, and each of the small flowers have 3 beads.

I had a ragged 1" piece of fabric left from one end of the fabric scrap. I secured it with hot glue to one end of the headband and wrapped it tightly before securing it with hot glue at the other end.

|Wrap it tightly!|
Use a thick line of hot glue to secure the felt circles to the underside of the headband.

Add a lot of hot glue to the felt circles and attach the roses.
|With all of the felt circles attached, begin securing the roses.|
|Maybe we'll try Pooh...|
|Or no model at all....|
I think this headband looks just like a little tiara!
