We went to a Birthday Party last weekend and the Birthday Girl was wearing the cutest headband. I asked her mom about it and she remarked that she paid over $20 dollars for it! Well, being the resourceful mama that I am I went home and whipped this up in 10 minutes for probably a a dollar. We had all the  supplies already. I roughly cut out a bunch of tulle circles by folding the tulle over several times and cutting out all the circles at once. I began by folding the circles into quarters and threading them on the needle. I used about six quarters. Then I just threaded the rest of the circles on, without folding them. I then sewed the flower onto a sparkled children's headband. If I were to do it over again, i would probably make the circles smaller, otherwise I thing it came out cute!

I think the flower is a perfect size. The oversize really amps up the cute factor. Well Done. It would also look cute with a fairy dress.

Too cute! I attempted this with a bolt of white thule I had sitting around, and well, it didn't come out as cute as yours! (that may have something to do with it was then put on a grown woman's head instead of an adorable little girl!)

I love it, it looks a lot like the J Crew one ER has. That one was like $16, but I got it on clearance for $4. It's not tulle but fabric and super cute. I was wishing I had a few more in other colors, nice to know how to replicate some:) You are amazing like always.
