Remember this Wire T-Shirt Scarf from The Simple Craft Diaries?
Well, Today we have Andréa sharing another fun and simple tutorial. Her scarf was the top viewed link at last weeks It's A Rockin' Party and therefore she gets to be a guest blogger today...so without further ado, here's Andréa...take it away girl...
I am Andréa from The Simple Craft Diaries and I love to craft! I am a stay at home mom who loves handmade and simple things. I love crafting them for my home, for my friends, for myself and most of all for my little girl, who is most certainly my main inspiration. When I started blogging back in March of this year, it was mostly about things I would do for her and for her gorgeous golden brown and long curly hair. Oh, how I love doing this!!
So, in keeping with my "origins", when Carmen invited me (yippee!!) to guest post here, I immediately thought of hair accessories for the fall. They are all very simple and easy, all you need is some felt ( it can be scraps!), scissors, fabric glue or a hot glue gun, hair clips and a headband.
Here they are: A pom pom headband, an over-sized multicolour mum flower hair clip and a single rosette hair clip. I love the fall colors!
POM POM headband:
1. A round shape ( I used a small sample paint container) around 2 " wide
2. Felt - I used red and brown for the leaves and ochre for the pom pom flower
5. Fabric glue/hot glue gun ( you can use needle and thread instead)
Make 27 circles, as each pom pom uses 9 of them
Use one of the circles for the bottom , fold the other ones in triangle shapes and start glueing as follows:
Make 2 layers
Cut 2 leaves, fold the bottom part in half and glue to get a leaf shape
Attach to one of the pom poms
Attach the pom poms to the headband
Cut 3 more felt circles to attach to the bottom and secure the flowers
The first fall beauty is ready!
Oversized Mum Flower
1. 20 strips of felt in assorted colours - I used orange, red, ochre , beige , red and brown. 9 inches x 3/4 " inch
2. Hot glue gun or fabric glue
3. Hair clip
Glue the strips to each other. Use rows of the same colours together. Pick the colour you want for the middle first and start form there. It will be a very long strip of felt, girl!
Start cutting the edge like this. To make things easier, I used a small scissor
After all the fringes are done, start rolling , glueing as you go.
A long way to go....but it goes fast, do not dismay!
Cut a circle of felt for the backing and grab the hair clip
With the hot glue gun, attach them to the back of the mum flower
A perfect photo prop for that perfect fall picture!
I also made a smaller version for everyday use, it is so easy!
1. Felt - I used bright orange for the rosette and brown, green and ochre for the leaves
3. Hot glue or fabric glue
4. Hair clip
Draw a spiral ( I used white felt here to make it easier for you to see)
Cut it out
Start rolling the spiral back and gluing as you go
Make the leaves the same way we did for the pom pom headband. This time I made 3 of them.
Glue them together
Attach to the rosette
Felt circle for the backing and a hair clip
Attach with the hot glue or fabric glue
Ready or not for fall??
Thank you Carmen for inviting me to guest post today, what a fun and exciting experience!
