How To Make A Felt Daisy Headband

Jan 3, 2011 by

After searching for aaages for something cute to make for James that was daisy related (it’s really hard to make flowers look manly >_<) I gave up and decided just to make myself some hair accessories. I did actually find him something to make but that’s another post ^_^

This came out of an idea that Omega suggested on Twitter as she sent me a link from Future Girl’s blog!

This is what you end up with…

    I really didn’t think it could be this simple, it looks so posh and something I know I would pay good money for!

    Time to find some felt and thread…

    This is really cute. My mom is making a ton of doll clothes lately and this would be cute on some of the accessories.

    I really like how you stitched the centers all criss-crossy, to really look like a daisy center. I’d love to see what all French Knots would look like, but putting yellow felt under them might be needed, so the white didn’t peek through. Maybe French Knots would be better on smaller flowers.

    Keep up the great work on all your crafts. Looking at them makes me what to be more crafty myself and gives me lots of ideas.

      Thanks so much for your lovely comment! I think French knots would look adorable but yes you would probably need some felt underneath. I think this would look adorable on dolls clothes too :D

    This is so cute! I have a bit of light blue felt left over from a project, maybe I’ll make one of these in blue :D

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      That would be adorable, you know I’m a sucker for light blue!

    That headband looks so sweet for Summertime. I heard it’s warming up in Melbourne.

    Kisses, Melanie

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      It seems to warm up for like 3-4 days then cool right down again, I wish it would make up its mind!

  • http://nails.blogmesin.com Rabbit

    It looks very good with this hairstyle. I think I will try something like this but in red :)

    As usual, I am in awe of your craftiness. I love the idea of felt-textured daisies… I think that’s really different. It’s fun to contrast fabrics.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Haha thanks Alisa!

      Happy NY Princess!! Aww thank you, maybe I can make one and send it to you?

  • http://www.nessbow.webs.com Nessbow

    gaah! That is so super-duper cute. It looks great with your hair up like that. I’m not much of a headband person, but I made an impromptu bow headband to wear to Hairspray the other day, and I really liked it, so I think I’ll be making heaps more.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      :D Thanks Ness! I don’t think I could live without my headbands hahaha!

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      The key is tiny tiny scissors XD

  • http://LoveLiveLolita.blogspot.com Josephine

    This is simply precious! I love flowers on hairbands and clips, so I might try this tutorial myself. Like Miss Lumpy said, it’d be fun to try these in different colours too!

    xo

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

  • Amber

    I used hemp and hot glued the middlee to a little piece of white felt and then kept putting hot glue on the back after spinning it into a spiral =]

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Oh those are really cute! Would you like me to add them to my reader’s gallery?

      • Amber
