Flower Ballerina Headband

In case you missed this on Me Sew Crazy, here's my latest headband tutorial:

When I was a little girl my mom would take me to see The Nutcracker ballet. My favorite costumes were those worn during The Waltz Of The Flowers. Those beautiful flower tutus were the inspiration for this headband.

Start by taking apart your flowers and throwing away the hard plastic pieces. Then apply a thin line of glue around the edges and dipping them into the glitter.

Once the glitter is dry, put your flowers back together again and hot glue some gems in the center.

Hot glue your trim along the top of you headband.

Sew down the middle of each tulle strip lengthwise. Pull to gather and wrap the thread around the middle several times before knotting.

Hot glue your two "tutus" a little off to the side of the headband.

Hot glue your flowers and leaves on top of the tulle.
Your headband is now ready for a sweet little ballerina!
