I said I might have something special for this next project and I do. A tutorial. That’s right, my first tutorial. Can you believe I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years and I have yet to do a tutorial?
This is for a floral headband for spring. All that’s needed is:
- A headband, I got this one at Dollar Tree but these headbands would be great.
- A spool of ribbon.
- Small bunches of fake roses, the ones with the wire stems. I got these at SAS for 50 cents each.
- A glue gun (this is the one I have) or a really good fabric glue.
First you need to pull apart the flowers. They don’t need to be in bouquets for this.
To finish it, just wrap the ends of the headband with more ribbon, gluing as you go. Of course you also need to stop to admire your handy-work. I think mine came out really pretty, and I had extra flowers leftover.
So I used them for this. This was a straw purse I had gotten at Dollar Tree years ago. It had an ugly lining, worse straps, and a ribbon bow that didn’t match. I replaced the lining with white cotton fabric, added new ribbon straps, and decorated with some lace and the leftover roses.
Now it’s my new favorite bag. And it inspired my mother, she wants to make some for her granddaughters. Maybe some headbands too.
Here’s the updated list:
