felt headband tutorial


I love my new headband! 
I have so much felt and elastic laying around...
I thought I would get creative and try something new.

 YOU WILL NEED:
scrap felt 
jewls 
headband or elastic 
lighter 
glue gun


Trace out three different size circles. 
The circles don't need to be perfect. 


Cut them out and stack together
 You should have something like this!

I didn't really like the look of it.

 I took a lighter to the edges... then it didn't look
like I just got out of the craft room. 


This is the look you will get if you burn the edges.  

 I took the lighter and burnt from the bottom...
this makes the felt curl up more.

Also if you do use the lighter method know that
 the felt will shrink up a bit.


Take your glue gun and glue all circles together.
Then add your jewel and glue in the middle circle.


Now that all circles are done
 glue them to the elastic band. 

Make sure to overlap them...
I did about a half an inch...

If you don't then they separate and stretch apart. 


Then enjoy!!!

  5. I love these type of headbands. I wish I could get more enthusiasm in the morning to add pretty accessories to my hair. I know for most gals a pony tail or adding a headband is the easy "do" but for some reason my easy "do" is just down, boring and straight..LOL It looks great on you!

  17. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should publish more about this issue, it might not
    be a taboo subject but usually people don't talk about such issues. To the next! Many thanks!!
