I’m sure it’s pretty obvious that I like to accessorize my babes. We have more headbands than I even know what to do with but somehow I always need more. You know what else we have a ton of? Clothes that no longer fit. Since my hot glue gun is always ready to be fired up I decided to try my hand at making my little miss a headband. It was late and I didn’t feel like going to a fabric store, so I decided to repurpose some of my favorite clothes to make headbands!! You may have seen my previous post about making hairbows from old clothing. Buttttt that involves a little bit of sewing. I wanted something simple so I went for rosettes!
I transformed these two skirts into a fab headband!
For those that don’t know how to make a fabric rosette I’m going to break it down for you. It’s beyond simple. All you need is a strip of fabric and a hot glue gun. Cut your fabric into a strip between 2 and 3 inches and fold it in half lengthwise. Tie the end in a knot to make you center/starting point.
Next, start twisting and rolling your fabric around the center. You can leave the “tail” of your know on the underside.
Add a dab of hot glue to the side every few turns to hold your rosette in place.
When you are happy with the size simply finish by gluing the bottom piece to the bottom of the rosette!!!
I added a simple flower I had on stash and put them on plain white elastic!
What do you think!?!?!? I am in LOVE! …. and it didn’t cost me anything! Go ahead, get your craft on!
