An easy fun craft that you could do with your kids at home is this beautiful hairband that we have created. Making this project is a breeze especially with this new discovery called Adhesive Fabric Paper i.e. Fabric with a adhesive on the back. I found this recently and have been smitten by the product.
What you need
Pink Floral Adhesive Fabric Paper Stack. – can be bought in Joann /Michaels or Walmart
Headband – found in Joann /Michaels or Walmart
Button -2 to 3 – Joann /Michaels or Walmart
A small peice of foam
Step 1. Cut a piece of the fabric paper – an awesome product – into a strip wide enough to cover the headband. Peel of the backing and stick onto the headband. Use 2 pieces or 2 layers if necessary. Fold over and stick the rest onto the back of the headband. Cut next the pink into a 2 inch wide strip and further cut into squares like in the picture above.
Peel of the paper backing of the square and fold over to form triangle as in picture above.
Step 2. Fold over the bottom corners of the triangles to form pleats to form petals like shown below. Apply a little glue to stay in place. Create 6-8 petals depending on choice.
Step 3. Glue gun the 6 petals together side by side to form a ring. Dab glue in the center to result in shape below. Glue the foam piece to the center of the button.
Step 4. Cut a square bit from the paper fabric and peel off the backing and cover the button tightly.
Step 6. Cut a tapered strip from the floral paper to cover and stick to back of headband. Dab glue if necessary.
Step 7. Stick button onto the center of the flower and glue gun flower onto the covered headband.
