DIY Flower Button Headband

Hello friends, it’s Cat from The Rustic Willow here today! I love that I get to come show you all a craft once a month–I feel like we’re having a once-a-month party. Do you feel that way too or is it just me? I hope it’s not just me.

Since it’s starting to feel more springy, I feel like everything should be decorated with flowers, including headbands! Aurora (my lovely model pictured above), absolutely loves to wear headbands. So, I decided to make her a cute little flower headband for spring!

Isn’t she just the cutest? Minus the little scratch on her chin from our cat… but she’s still cute nonetheless.

I’m just going to jump right into the tutorial–it’s very simple.

Here is what you need:

diy flower button headband– a plain headband
– buttons
– modge podge
– card stock
– hot glue (not pictured)

Start off by heating up your glue gun. Then, cut a circle out of the card stock (about the size that you want your flower to be). Then, glue your middle button onto the center of the circle.

Then, hot glue the rest of your buttons on. I decided to give my flower a stem as well, but you can skip the stem if you just want a flower.
