How To Create Those Cute Etsy Felt Flower Crowns
You will need:
2-3 sheets of white felt
glue gun + sticks
headband of your choice
rhinestones and dark green felt are optional
Step One | Sit down, put an awesome movie on, get a drink, and prepare yourself to cut a lot of little flowers. The best part? The flowers you cut out DO NOT need to be perfect. The imperfections will be hidden in the folds.
I started by cutting the sheet into 3x 2 inch strips and then cutting those strips into 3 rectangles. Take the rectangle and cut a simple flower out.
If you are a math person the approximate amount of flowers you will be cutting out goes something like this:
Each BIG headband flower = 6 mini cut out flowers
Each filler headband flower = 2 mini cut out flowers
There were 3 big flowers + 4 filler flowers = 20 mini cut out flowers
Step Two | After you’ve used the above diagram to create 3 big flowers from the little cut outs then it’s time to place and secure your flower placements.
I first centred one flower in the middle and then gave the width of my finger to measure the next flowers to the left and right of the centre.
Once you’ve glued those into place use the remaining cutout flowers to fill those gaps between the main flowers on the headband. I liked the look of adding two cutout flowers on the outside of the outer main flowers.
It created a fade effect for the headband, instead of 3 random honking flowers on top of my toddlers head.
OPTIONAL LEAVES | If you cut out leaves this is where you would add them into your arrangement.
Step Three | I added a piece of felt to secure all the bases, this also makes it so none of the flowers will snag when my toddler repetitively takes off and puts on this headband.
OPTIONAL RHINESTONES | This headband was for a wedding so I wanted a bit of sparkle for the flower girl, so I tucked sticky rhinestones into the centres of the flowers. It’s super easy!
TA-DA! And you are done!
