Transform your little bits of felt into this floral headband to match a holiday outfit! Materials Elastic headband (You can purchase these at dollar and drug stores) Fabric scissors Felt (we used reds, oranges, yellow & black) Buttons Fabric glue Embroidery floss/needle (optional) Cardboard Smock Directions Prepare all of your items for gluing. Cut out felt circles to make a base for your flowers. (We used black.) Cut out yellow centres. Cut hearts out of felt. Snip off the bottom, pointy section. Layer them on top of each other in a circular fashion without gluing them until you have a desired fullness of bloom. Stitch a simple line down the centre of the top petals with your embroidery floss and needle. (Optional). Don your smock. Glue down your petals to the base, glue on your yellow centres and then add a black button on top with your fabric glue. Stretch your headband over a piece of cardboard so it is taut. Carefully put glue your headband and attach your flowers. Allow to dry overnight. Carefully remove your headband from the cardboard once it is dry. Enjoy! Purpose Using small pieces of felt that might otherwise be discarded. Safety Notes Be sure to wear a smock and exercise caution when using fabric glue. Use a needle and thread with care and adult supervision. Buttons can be a choking hazard so be sure to keep them out of the reach of children 0-3 or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
