How To Make A Fabric Rosette Headband

We've seen these fun vintage looking fabric flower rosette headbands all over the place lately. The princess and I think they're extremely cute, so we decided to dust off the hot glue gun and give it a try. The princess helped (this is a great craft to do with your girls) and we ended up making quite a few headbands to match some of her back to school outfits. I'm sure they'll come in handy when we need a quick hairstyle for school!
fabric flower headband tutorialIt's actually pretty funny that I'm posting a DIY craft tutorial on this blog. :) I've mentioned this before, but let me remind you that I'm not a crafty person at all. I really dislike sewing and rarely use a glue gun or fabric. So... if I can do this, you can do this for sure! This is a "no sew" method and was actually really easy and quick (even for me, lol.)

Items needed:

scrap fabric
hot glue gun
scissors
felt
pencil
basic headband

Video tutorial 2: How to attach the fabric flowers/bling to the headband.....


Of course, you can get creative with this and make all kinds of cute variations. You could add embellishments such as buttons, beads, feathers, jewels, tulle, lace, etc. You could make the rosettes out of ribbon or you could even make your own basic headband instead of buying one like we did.

We made one of these hair accessories using an old pair of jeans for the flowers that turned out to be our favorite headband.

If you try this, we would love to see the creations and ideas you come up with! Feel free to inspire us by posting pictures of your finished headbands on our facebook page!!

  4. So cute! I was thinking that a jean one would be cute if you did a bandanna rosette to go with it as well. I am definitely going to have some fun playing with these. Thanks!!

  9. I love this! I have seen head bands like this that are over $30. It looks so simple to make. I just found my hot glue gun, so I think I will try this. You could probably use the rosettes on other things like clips, pony tail holders and lots of other stuff.

  10. I just purchased one of those off this website http://www.etsy.com/shop/undertheelms LOVE the look, and these ones arent too pricy, i thought. Because I dont have the time to go purchase supplies, nor the time to make them. But the video did make it seem super easy.

  13. Love this. I am not crafty AT ALL but I think MAYBE I could do this. I think it would be neat to make some of these and affix to pins and then embellish a tote bag or purse.

  17. This is so cute! I am 12 years old and my sister (9) and I love this site! I was super excited to try this out when you posted it, but didn't think I would be able too since it used a glue gun. I tried it today with the flowers you can make and store bought flowers from micheals that made a headband that was just as cute! I also made a rosette and put it on a bobby pin and it is adorable! I'm extremely excited to use this especially since I have wanted one for so long. Thank you so much for posting this! Tell the princess hello! ~ Kate
