Valentine's Day is only days away now and the theme crafting is coming to an end (until Easter, that is).
My daughter and I noticed the other day that she had no Valentine hair accessories. So, I told her I would make her something pretty.
I decided on a headband because it's so easy for her to put on herself and plus, they're just fun to make!
So here it is.
Let's make one shall we?
What you need:
Felt scraps (red, white and pink)
Hot glue gun
Gems, beads and embellishments
You can find sparkling gems at the craft store, but sometimes they cost more than I'd like to spend.
I found these bobby pins at the dollar store.
They're really cute as they are, but nobody wears bobby pins in this house.
I got some metal snips and cut that sucker off. No, that sucker wasn't just glued on.. it was soldered on!
Get some circular shaped objects to trace such as jar lids.
And trace them onto the felt.
Once you've cut them out, cut spirals into each one, like this. These are to create the rosettes
Take the end of the spiral and start rolling while hot gluing every so often.
At the end, just glue the flap to the back of your rosette.
Pretty simple. Make some more.
I glued the gem to the middle of one of the rosettes.
Now hot glue the rosettes onto another piece of felt, arranging and clustering them however you like.
Cut around the felt so they're all attached.
Cut another similar shaped piece of felt.
Glue the rosette cluster onto your headband. Then sandwich the headband with the other felt piece over top.
I then added a small red feather with hot glue between the rosettes.
Try it on and admire.
It looks "love"ly on her! And most importantly, she liked it.
