One of my wonderful readers asked me for a tutorial for this headband. I was happy to oblige. It gave me the perfect excuse to make one for myself! LOL.
I call it the Sylvia headband because it reminds me of my Mother-In-Law. This is something she would totally wear. Frilly and feminine, just her style.
- Strips of fabric (mine range from 1" to 1.5" wide)
- tulle (the soft kind)
- Glue gun
- Glue sticks
Put a dot of glue on the inside of one end of the headband.
Put the end of a strip of fabric on the dot of glue.
Place a small dot of glue on the front and wrap fabric to cover the glue.
Continue wrapping the fabric around the headband.
Until you get to the other end of the headband.
Put a dot of glue on the inside and fold the fabric over onto the glue.
Cut of the extra.
For The Roses
Tie a knot at the end of a strip of fabric.
Put some glue on the knot.
Twist the fabric and push into the glue.
Continue twisting and gluing until you get the desired size rose.
Put some glue on the back of the rose and fold the end of the fabric into the glue.
Repeat making various size flowers.
Embellishing The Headband
Fold tulle in half and then in half again. Cut it 3" wide.
Put a generous amount of glue on the headband.
Push the strip of tulle into the glue pleating it as you go.
Here's what it will look like.
Put some glue on top of the tulle.
Press flower into glue.
Trim the tulle if needed. I like mine to be a little shorter on the front than the back. I also like mine to be uneven. I don't like the tulle to have a straight looking edge. These are just my personal preferences.
Now you have a pretty new headband.
