As promised yesterday, here is my headband tutorial.

Simple Flower and Lace Headband Tutorial

I will show you how to make this simple head band, accented with a pretty fake flower.

Materials needed to make a flower lace head band.  Wide lace, blank headband, ribbon, flower, glue gun, and scissors.

Materials needed:

  • Glue gun with glue.
  • Ribbon.
  • A large flower.
  • A lace rosette, check out my video tutorial if you don’t know how to make one.
  • Scissors.
  • A plain headband, I prefer metal ones because they can be adjusted to fit your head without breaking.
  • Any other embellishments you want.


Making a flower and lace headband.  Wrap ribbon around the headband, glueing as you go.

First, glue the end of the ribbon to the end of the headband to start covering it.

Proceed to carefully wrap the ribbon around the head band, applying glue as you go.  Be careful not to burn yourself on the hot glue.

When you get to the other end, cut the ribbon and glue down the end.

If you want,  you can wrap a little extra ribbon on the ends of the headband.  This will give it a more polished look, but I’m too lazy for that.

Making a flower and lace headband.  Add the flower to the lace rossette.

Now for the flowers.  If your flower has a wire stem like mine, you will want to stick it through the center of the rosette.

It looks kind of cute like this. :)

Then you twist down the wire, so it lies flat and add some glue to secure it.

If your flower doesn’t have wire, you can just glue it to the center of the rossette.

As an alternative to the large flower, you can use a cluster of three or more smaller flowers.  Use whatever you like.

Moving on, glue the end of the piece of ribbon over the center of the back of the flower and rossette piece.

…Then glue down to attach the piece to your headband.  Make sure it is where you want it on the headband before you glue it.

Now it is ready for more decorations.

Making a flower and lace headband.  Add a ribbon bow and anyother embellishments you want, then you're done!

I added a ribbon bow with long tails (check out my simple bow video tutorial if needed), because I thought it looks pretty.  You can add jewels, strands of pearls, or anything else you want.

Enjoy the headbands and have a happy Easter.
