As my longtime readers know, I have a wee bit of an obsession with making things for my daughter. Since her birth she has been the recipient of many outfits, necklaces, bracelets, and, most especially, hair accessories! I have a bit of a baby headband obsession, which has gradually had to morph into a hair clip obsession since she has hair now and it’s usually in pigtails.
Today I am going to share with you one of my favorite, super simple baby accessory projects: rolled fabric flowers. I have used them in sooo many projects! Below are just three of the headbands that I have made using this simple flower making technique. If you want more just search “baby headbands” using the search tool at the top of this site. Seriously. I have problems. 😉
Would you like to see just how simple it is to make one of these rolled fabric flowers? Well then here we go!
All you need to make one of these rolled fabric flowers is a scrap of fabric, scissors, and a hot glue gun.
Cut a strip of your fabric. The length and width of the strip will determine the size of the rosette. Obviously, wider and longer strips will be larger flowers.
Twist the fabric with your fingers.
When your flower gets to the size that you like simply cut off the remainder of the fabric and glue the fabric end on the back of the flower to finish it off.
All done! Stick it on a clip or headband and you are good to go!
Here a fun pinnable collage for you to pin as a reminder of the steps:
Before I go, here are a couple more crazy simple flower making tutorials that also use scraps of fabric:
