Pink and Orange Flower Headband

This week I came across this adorable flower at Just Made That Way.  Well, since it seems that I am slightly obsessed with felt flowers these days of course I fell in love with it.  So I decided to make some for myself and ended up with a headband.  This headband was created for my beautiful daughter, but she was way to busy helping daddy out in the yard to pose for a pic today.  So, some of the pics are of the headband on my head instead. Hehehe.


This is how I made it.
First I followed the advise of this tutorial on iCandy Handmade and used a flower template.  I printed the  clip art and cut out the three flowers to use for cutting templates.  For the headband, I used the small flower.  For the flower tutorial below, I used the large flower so it would be easier to see in the pics.  When I use a template, I like to pin the paper template on top of the felt and cut it out.


I used the template to cut out five flowers out of felt.  One of the flowers is used as the base and the other four are glued to it as petals.  I put a little bit of glue in the middle and folded each flower in half.  Then put a little glue in the middle of the half and fold it in half again.  Next, glue the four folded flowers to the base flower.


When my petals were on a glued a pearl bead in the center.


I made a pink and an orange one and then glued them to a headband.  I glued a felt circle over the headband side for added support.


I love the way it turned out.
