PomPom Headband Tutorial

I know I have been pretty much MIA the last few weeks, but I'm back with a headband tutorial :) ...that makes it okay, right? Anywho...I'll get right to it!

(ps...My camera cable ran away so I was unable to upload pictures until I bought a new one!)

Remember this headband I made? Well I promised a tutorial and I finally have some pictures!

I made one for my mother:



Now, I loved the idea of this headband from one sold at Dillards, and knew it'd be simple to make. I also came across a pom pom tutorial at Little Miss Momma before I actually made my first one.

These are so EASY! ...and they don't require too much time :)

Let's get started!

Materials:
  • Fabric
  •  Felt
  • Headband
  • Glue gun
Step 1: Cut out circles in your felt. The size of your felt circle with be the size of your pom pom.


Step 2: Cut out your fabric the same size as the felt circle. I cut my fabric into strips, then folded it accordion style, pinned my felt circle on top and cut around it.
You need about 10 fabric circles per pom pom. (They don't have to be perfect either)


Step 3: Time to put your pom pom together! Take one fabric circle and fold it in hald twice.

...one...
...two...


It will look like this from the top....

Step 4: Pinch the end, add a dab of hot glue and glue it to the center of the felt circle.


Hold it for a few seconds until it's dry. Then it will look like this...

Step 5: Repeat step 3 and continue gluing them around the center piece of fabric.


It will then look like this...

Step 6: Glue your poms to your headband.
I glued three poms to this headband.

Optional: Step 7: Glue a piece of matching felt to the oposite side of the headband to cover the bottom of the pom poms.

I love it :) ...and my mom loves it!

Here is my mother wearing her headband for Valentine's Day:

Isn't she so PRETTY?! :)


Hope this is easy for you to follow along and hope you enjoyed it! Haha, as you can tell, I sat on my couch making this headband as some of those picture were taken with my legs as the backdrop haha!
Hope you enjoy the pictures too!
