DIY Fabric Flower Headbands

First, I would like to apologize for not being consistent with my posts!  I have been so busy with my wonderful Mommy's group, play dates, Hayden turning two and knitting that my blog has really been put on the back burner!  :(  I will try to keep it going as I have been getting a little nudge from a friend! ;) You know who you are Cristan!

So here is a post I've been wanting to get up for awhile now:

My friend Charisa coins herself "Blair Waldorf" (this is a Gossip Girl reference in case you are wondering) with all the headbands she wears so for her birthday I thought what better gift to make!?

I took a bandana I got from Dollar Tree and cut it into strips and made a fabric flower.  I have made these in the past here .  Basically you just wrap the fabric and hot glue as you go.
 I wrapped a plastic headband with grosgrain ribbon in a coordinating color and hot glued the flowers on.  

Then I cut a piece of felt in cream to hot glue onto the back of the flowers to help them stay attached better.

I found some gems to hot glue in the center from my stash of hair flower and little girl bow supplies.  For the teal one I actually cut up an old skirt that was in the "donate" pile and did the same process!  How is that for reusing something!?

Close up :-)

This box is made from scrapbook paper!

I really love how they both turned out! :)  Hopefully you enjoyed them too! :)
