From Pinterest to Real Life: Flowers for Your Hair

Over Christmas, my daughter and I made a few different flowers and attached them to clips and head bands. All of the tutorials were found through Pinterest, of course.

Below are pictures of what we made and links to the tutorials, so you can make them too.

All of them were inexpensive to make. I’d say each cost 50 cents to $1, at the very most (maybe not even that much. I already had the fabric and elastic on hand).

Rolled Fabric Flower – This involved cutting the fabric in a long strip, rolling it and hot-gluing.

You can find detailed instruction with pictures from the original tutorial: Rolled Fabric Flower

Swirly Felt Flower
– This Sleeve-turned headband pin (which I hope to make soon), led me to this Spiral Felt Flower Tutorial. My 10 year old enjoyed making these (as did I). We even got extra creative and added a few to a headband:

Last of all, my daughter made this:

It involved some simple cutting and gluing, although the original tutorial does include some stitching. I think we were getting tired!

This is the tutorial, with a printable pattern:

What have you been making?


  1. Those all turned out so cute!

  2. Those are so pretty, Stacy! I am having a hard time choosing which one I like best! I think it is the dark purple one, but I’m not sure!

  3. Super cute! (p.s. didn’t realize you had a 10-year old! how fun to have someone old enough to do “real” crafts with!)

    Very cute and it’s a project that is great for a “girls day” craft. I’m a newbie to Pintrest and have NO idea how it works or even to get the tutorials to work. Can anyone please help me understand and get me through the basics ? Please use my email to reply with any help:

    Thank you very much.
