I've seen a ton of flower headdresses around, but I wanted to make one that was quick to make, cartoony and an easy accessory for kids (and me) to dress up in. I think this one works quite well for all of those things, and I pretty much love it. If you want it to seem a little more grown-up, you can paint some shading on the petals to give them a little more definition.
DIY Felt Flower Headdress
Fold a small piece of paper in half and draw this heart shape in the folded corner. You're going to need a clover shape like this when you open it out. Cut this shape out of felt.
Cut out two of your clover shapes and pile them on top of each other. Sew a few stitches in the middle of your felt pieces.
Take one petal and roll it up like this to form the center of the rose.
Now take the opposite petal and wrap it around the central curled petal, put a few stitches at the base to secure it.
Wrap the two remaining petals around the center and secure with stitches.
Now continue wrapping petals until your rose is complete and secured with stitches.
Now assemble your goodies. You're going to need around 7-8 roses and then also some leaf shapes cut out of green felt.
To attach your rose to your headband simply sew a stitch through the bottom of your rose and round the headband. Sew this over and over until your rose feels strong.
Add a few leaves on either side of each rose to bulk out your headband.
Continue until your headband is finished and you're done!
