Rosette DIY Felt Flower Headband Tutorial
Watch this quick video to get an idea of how this felt flower headband is made. Then follow along with the written steps and photos below.
How to Make Felt Flowers for a Headband
Start by downloading the Rose felt flower template. If you are using your Cricut upload the SVG file into Design Space. Add it to a new project and adjust the size. For these mini rosettes I made them about 2×2.
If you are cutting these out with scissors, download the PDF template. Before printing it out, be sure to adjust the Custom Scale option on the print screen to adjust the size of the pattern. Then use the pattern to cut out your felt.
Once you have your felt cut out it’s time to start making the rosettes. Start with the end that does not have the circle on the end.
Place a small amount of glue along the bottom of the strip and begin rolling the flower in.
Continue rolling and gluing until you get to the end. Place a small amount of glue on the circle and place it over the bottom of the flower to cover it.
Next, you can (optionally) free hand-cut some leaves out of green felt. If you want to use leaves on your headband, glue them to the bottom or sides of your flowers now.
How to Attach Flowers to a Headband
After you make your 3 flowers it’s time to assemble the headband. Since this is an Ombre colored headband, the flowers should be placed darkest to lightest on the headband.
Place a small amount of glue to the bottom of the flower and stick directly to the headband. Do the same with the remaining flowers.
The nylon headbands I used came with a small piece of backing material to use behind the flowers to keep them in place and stabilize them. Alternatively, you could use a strip of felt. Glue it to the back of the flowers and headband. If there is any excess that shows, just trim it off.
And there you have it, an adorable ombre felt mini rosette headband!
