Flower Headband

Flower Headband

So I’m still just chugging away at making things– I’ve been in a really creative mood lately so that has helped :) I may even attempt to get out my sewing machine today and make Brynley’s dress– may being the key word there- I still haven’t forgotten how much I didn’t enjoy sewing the crayon roll-

Anyways– I found this cute dress for Brynley at Target– actually she found it and was so excited about it and trying it on– so I bought it– sneakily– and planned on giving it to her for Christmas but it just needed something to go with it I felt to make it a special dress for her– so originally I was going to make a braclet for her but than I just decided to go with making a flower headband to match the dress since she seems to really like her other similar headbands.

It was easy and fun and I was able to finish it while she was at joy school one morning. I even made another one for the dress that I might eventually sew :)

Flower Headband 

1-So first off I bought some ugly headbands at wally world for cheap I think 6 for like $3 or so but they were all the wrong color so I just painted them and to make it slightly shiny I actually spray painted a clear protective gloss over it.

2- Than I went to work drawing and cutting out little flowers from some scrap satin fabric— I cut out ten flowers and than gently pulled on the edges to give them the frayed look— (I’m sure if you didn’t want the frayed look you could easily burn the edges to keep it from fraying)

3- Than I went to gluing every two together– folded it and squished it up until I was happy with the shape of it and than glued it one pair at a time onto the headband– (I glued them really close together and in a straight line and on the edge ones I had it so the petals were sticking out and almost flat to the headband instead of up- if that makes sense at all)
4- Tada! We’re done!  I had a hard time taking a good picture of the sucker though — I think it will look adorable on her with her dress– but we’ll have to wait till after Christmas to see.
