Frayed Flower Headband

I love adding frayed flowers to headbands, clippies, and hats! It just adds a nice touch! I have gotten compliments for my frayed flower headbands. So I decided to show you guys how I make them!

Step One: Choose your fabric. You can choose as many colors/designs as you would like. Try to keep it simple.


Step Two: Cut out four sided flowers. I usually cut around 15 flowers (try to keep them the same size, although you can make a 2 or 3 of them bigger for the base petals).



Step Three: Fray the edges of your flowers.



Step Four: Put a dab of hot glue in the center of each flower and roll the flower between your fingers to sort of "mush" it up.



Step Five: This is when you start to glue each "flower" onto your headband (or felt if you are using this for a clip or hat). If you made bigger "flowers", use them on the bottom layer first.

 


Feel free to add tulle to your flower for a different look!

 
(This is an example of my frayed flower with tulle on a hat.)
Step Five (continued): Continue to glue the "flowers" in place.



Now we have our finished product!
