Because my daughter, who also loves Halloween and dressing up in costumes, is really into wearing headbands lately, I decided to make one especially for Halloween!
Black and orange!!
To make one of your own, here's what you'll need:
Buttons, jewels, embellishments
Hot glue gun
I used a rolled rosette for this headband. If you're unsure about how to make them, here's a quick how-to.
Using a strip of fabric (the size depends on how big or small you want the rosette), make a knot at one end. This is the center of your rosette.
Fold the fabric width wise, so the rosette shows the right side of the fabric.
Now twist and wrap the fabric around your knot, adding small dabs of hot glue when needed.
Try to keep the rosette tight and flat and the more the fabric frays, the better.
Done. Now make more, in different colors, textures and sizes.
Once you have the rosettes you want for the headband, get any embellishments you like to add interest. I used black tulle, a black rhinestone and a silver button.
Begin to hot glue your pieces onto felt, the way you want your rosettes and embellishments to sit.
Once you're done gluing the pieces where you want, let the glue cool and set for a few minutes.
Now cut your felt around the grouping. The felt provides an anchor to keep the pieces in place and makes it easier to attach to your headband.
Cut a another similar shape out of felt.
Figure out where you want the piece to sit on your headband, then sandwich the headband between the two pieces of felt and hot glue in place.
Let it cool and try it on. Admire.
Perfect for the Halloween season!
Enjoy!! Use the headband tutorial on any colors and styles you like! Hope you're inspired for the weekend.
