DIY: Flower Hair Bands for Girls and Babies!


I’ve been really, really, really wanting to try making these since becoming a grandmother!! Handmade hair bands for Melody!  How fun will it be to have a bunch of different ones to match her outfits???


I have found a way to make them without a bunch of fuss and have come up with three styles using some crafty products from my stash.


My first one is a very big bright flower with petals made of fabric. This is easier than it looks, seriously! Only a little hand sewing. I used a wider elastic band to support the size.


This next flower is made from twisting torn strips of cloth in a spiral. It’s a great way to use left over pieces of material. I chose a thin elastic band, but might change it out to a double band or the thicker elastic one. That’s the beauty of handmade projects, they can be customized!


My last hairband is made from felt… in my favorite color GREY!!! I used the Movers and Shapers Mini Heart die from Tim Holtz to create this flower. They are overlapped to form petals. Easy to assembly with a glue gun.


I have to tell you, these were really fun to make, didn’t need my sewing machine, but did dust off the iron to use on the first flowers petals. I’ve shot a video for you showing how to make each one. You can view it here or on our YouTube channel. Hope you enjoy

Thanks for coming by today, I hope you have a great week!

Some supplies used for these projects:

  1. Wow! Thank you so much, Shari, for this awesome video tutorial! Perfect timing, too. My first grandchild, Leah Rose, is due to arrive in August and now I’ll be able to make her some headbands to go along with her little outfits.

  2. Can cotton fabric be cut with the wafer thin dies? I have never cut anything other than aper, so I am not sure!

  3. OOH these head bands are darling – I didn’t know how easy there are to make and thank you for the great tutorial:)

  4. Wonderful hair bands and I just enjoyed that tutorial. My favorite is the first one. I think I may just have to make that – and I don’t usually sew anything. It looks like something I can do with my limited sewing talent. Thanks so much for the inspiration! Hugs, Robin

  5. These are so cute and sweet and Melody will look adorable. It’s so much fun to make something for a grand child! :)

  6. These are adorable! I used to make bows and headbands for my daughter, alas, she’s now 27! No grand kids yet either, but I’ll keep this in mind for when I do become so blessed.

  7. So gorgeous! I remember making hair bows for my girls when they are little. How fun that I’ll get to do it again as a grandmother. Thanks so much for the inspiration. Love the colors.

    Snoopy :D

  8. Thanks for sharing your no sew DIY. I like them all, but have to say the gray is my favorite.
    Love the polka dots. And since I don’t sew, I love it when I can use glue:)
