Tutorial: Misted Flower Headband


Hello SC friends! Kelly N here to show you a quick little headband I made this weekend. It's super fast and easy and now I'm so hooked on making them, I might have to go buy some more headbands.

I used some of this new white flowery American Crafts ribbon (Maya Road makes a similar ribbon that would also work well). To start, I cut 3 flowers from the ribbon, trimming away the excess.
This is what the flowers will look like once you've cut them from the ribbon...
Next, I used mist to color the flowers. Super quick and the mist dries so fast, which I love, because I'm an instant gratification kind of girl! I used turquoise, purple and the Dark Calico Mister Huey for mine, but with so many different color mists in the shop, you could come up with all sorts of fun color combos.
Here's what they look like all misted....
Now, take a piece of cardstock punched into a circle (felt would work better for this, but I didn't have any...you should use felt!). Put some glue onto your circle...
Stick all the flowers down onto the circle, add a fun button/brad in the center to finish it off and then simply glue it onto a plain headband and voila, you've got yourself a snazzy headband!


I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial...be sure to show us if you make one of your own. Enjoy the reveal tomorrow night and have a great week everyone! :)

This is a great idea! I never thought of cutting that ribbon down to get pretty single flowers!!!

Also, I love the idea of misting them to personalize the color!
