Fabric Rosette Headband

The sun is shining and I have some caffeine pulsing through my veins, so I decided to make something. I am by no means the craft goddess I daydream of being, but I think the most important thing is to have fun with it and recognize it as a creative outlet, if nothing else. It also helps to let go of the notion that everything is always going to turn out perfect.

I made a cute spring fabric rosette headband and it was super easy!

I started out with some fabric glue.

Next I took a headband I already had, some fabric and started wrapping away. You can find plain headbands like this at Target. I think they were $3 for two? Or something wonderful close to that.

I didn't glue all the way around, just at both ends, but I wrapped it tight and snug.

After this I made some fabric rosettes. There are a billion tutorials out there (okay maybe not that many, but there are a lot!) so find what you like and try out a few different techniques to decide what works best for you.

Then, I simply glued the rosettes onto the headband. Brain surgery, right?

And...voila! You have yourself, your daughter, your best friend friend, your sister, your mom, etc, a darling new spring headband!

So cute, right?

Before it dried, I decided I liked the green rosette in the center, so I switched.

  7. Fabric glue. Much better choice than SuperGlue. SuperGlue does not live up to my expectations.
