How to Make Fabric Flower Headbands

supplies needed to make a flower headband

Supplies & Materials – You will need scissors, a hot glue gun, fabric, a button and a plastic headband.

Make The Circles – Cut out 2 large circles that are the same size, and 4 small circles.

Glue – Take your to you larger fabric circles and glue them on top of each other by hot-gluing a small little dab in the center of one and pressing the other circle on top.

For the smaller circles, fold them in half and then layer them one at a time on top of each other, stacking them on the larger fabric circles. The rounded part of the fabric will line up with the round part of the large fabric circles and the straight, folded edge will be in the center.

Secure The Fabric – Add several small dabs of glue under the layered fabric and as close to the center of the flower as possible to secure.

Embellishments – When you’re done you can glue a button or a rhinestone in the center… whatever you’d prefer!

Connect – To secure the flower to the headband, place a generous amount of glue on your rectangular fabric, then place it on the underside of your headband. Center the headband on the fabric, then place the flower on top of the headband and press firmly to secure.

  1. Super cute! I've seen packs of 6 headbands for $1 at Walgreens lately. I think I might make the flowers but put them on alligator clips since headbands don't work for my daughter's hair. Loved the video and didn't think your voice was annoying AT ALL!

  2. I love these!
    I can't see the video at work, but I can't wait to check this out once I'm at home. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  3. These are adorable! I think I'm going to try making a few of the flowers for a scrapbook I'm working on! Fantastic work!

    I am craft challenged so I found your little video very easy to follow and no your voice is pleasant. I can't wait to make several of these for my little great niece. Thank you for posting this.

  7. I made my niece a tote bage and decorated it with flowers… but I like how you made the center"petals" by folding over… I will have to try that next.

  8. Love those! So cute on a headband too. Lots of options for colors, patterns etc. Have a wonderful weekend.

    thank you for sharing!! These are so amazingly simple! My daughter doesn't like headbands so I've been putting them on alligator clips.

  13. Do you stitch the petals to the back fabrics before you sew on the button? If so, what’s the best way to do it? I’m not very good at this stuff so I need more explanation. I’d like to make one for my granddaughters. Thanks!

  14. These are adorable! Thank you for sharing. With your permission, I plan to make these with my other fabric products in my accessory line. So cute.
