How to Make a Sunflower headband

A handmade floral headband for my daughter was on my crafting wishlist since my daughter turned 1. I decided to attempt making a Sunflower as it seemed uncomplicated.

Actually, it was easier than I presumed and didn’t take much time. Read on to learn how to make a gorgeous sunflower headband for kids. 

Things needed

Instead of fabric glue, you can also use Hot glue gun, But I recommend fabric glue because the pieces are small, and Fabric glue makes the job easier. 

Make sure you get a good quality felt, not the felt from the kid’s craft section in the shop. Many of those kids felt used to fray and are not suitable for these projects.

The rest of the blog is for the ones who love to see pictures and step-by-step instructions. You can save all of these pictures on your favourite Pinterest boards for later. 

Step 1: Make the sunflower’s Disc florets

First, we will make the Sunflowers Disc floret, which is the brown central part. 

  • Take the Brown felt and Cut a 2cm wide strip. The length should be at least 30 cm. 
  • Apply fabric glue along one edge (Lengthy side) and fold the strip in half.
  • Later, make small slits along the lengthy side at regular intervals.
  • Roll the strip from the end and finish it by sticking it with glue.

Step 2: Make the Sunflower’s petals

How to make sunflower petals with felt

  • Cut 20 to 25 small yellow patches of size 2 x 4 cm.
  • On each yellow piece, make a small slit in the bottom and a pointed edge on the top.
  • Now stick the bottom flaps together with glue, and this gives the petal a natural curve.
  • Likewise, create all the other petals.

Step 3: Gluing and Completing the Sunflower

  • Next, paste all the petals around the central brown part in two or three layers.
  • Similarly, make as many flowers as you want. I made two for my headband.

Step 4: Attach the sunflowers to the band

  • Make use of a rectangular strip of felt and glue it to the back of the sunflower. Now attach this to the headband using glue.

That’s it. The sunflower band is all set to adorn your daughter. You can also make a Sunflower hair clip by glueing a single flower over a plain hair clip.

Using the same method, we can make a variety of flowers.  One just has to change the shape, size, numbers, and colour of the petal. For example, with the same method, I made a lotus out of paper. Check this blog here.
