It’s FALL! I thought I’d share a fall leaves headband tutorial that I posted a few years ago. This project is easy and fast- I used items from my craft room to make it. You could take supplies you have on hand and make a variation of it too.
- a scrap piece of fabric for the button
- cover button kit
- glue gun & glue gun sticks
- moss green & dark brown embroidery thread
- embroidery needle
- dark brown elastic headband
- about 1/4 yard of moss green felt
- 1/4 yard of dark brown felt
Here is my stack of dark brown leaves:
Next I ran a running stitch through my brown leaves
I then back stitched (scroll down to back stitch) the green leaves:
Here is the stack of back stitched green leaves:
Take four to five of each set and
stack them together like so:
Turn one stack over and stitch through all the leaves to hold it into place:
Do that with both stacks.
At this point your stacks should like this on the back:
Lay your stacks overlapping on each other and
stitch them together from the back:
So you should now have one big stack of leaves.
Next make your button.
I used a 1 7/8″ button cover kit:
(or if you just want to make your own without the kit,
here’s a tutorial)
Lay your button on top of the leaves stack and coming from the bottom,
stitch up and through the hook of the button and then down back
and tie it off on the back side.
It should now look like this:
Take your glue gun and make a line
on the back of your stacked leaves
then lay your elastic headband on that line of glue:
Cut a piece of dark brown felt with rounded edges
to cover the back of the headband.
Cover with glue from glue gun:
