Felt is so awesome. So much you can make with it. Kid crafts, awesome flowers, and well there are countless other crafts and things you can make with it. It's so inexpensive and comes in so many colors now that it's perfect for making felt flowers for headbands of course! I found this awesome tutorial on how to make these super simple rolled flowers.
Here's what you'll need:
* Felt in any color your heart desires
* Glue gun
Print and cut the template on a piece of card stock so it's firm, that way you can reuse it again.
#1 - Cut a square of felt just a tiny bit bigger than your template.
#2 - Trace your template on the felt and cut it out. You'll be left with the spiral shape like shown in photo.
#3 - Start rolling from the outer end. Just keep rolling and keeping the bottom straight. You can glue as you feel necessary, I like to put a dot every so often. Roll it until you get to the last part which is a larger circle. That is your finishing piece. Glue that to the bottom of the flower as your backer. Done! Now make a bunch and glue them to everything! You can probably either create your own similar template or enlarge the one I gave you the link to.
Here is another felt flower idea,
a little more time consuming but very cute.
