pom pom headbands and clips tutorial...


if you lived in oregon you may have seen this little girl prancing around with her new pom pom headbands and hair clips.

she is just loving that i whipped these up for her!

(shhhhhh...i seal them and love to wear them too!)

my sisters and i are spending christmas together, and you better believe i will be bringing the supplies to make these this year.


want to make some?

here's how to make the pom poms:


  i just traced around a lid i found in my kitchen drawer, make sure the fabric is folded so you are cutting out at least two at a time.





keep gluing till you are happy with the size.
when you are done you make need to give it a little tweeking or more gluing to make the pom pom look nice and uniform.

when you are done you can attach it to a clip or a headband.


here's how to attach it to a clip:

first cover a clip with ribbon.
 here's how: 


then just hot glue it to the to of the fabric covered clip.


 here is how i made the 3 pom pom headband:

first i covered a headband with ribbon  like this:



then i attached three pom poms to the side of a headband with hot glue.
 


then glued 3 felt circles, the same size as the ones i used to make the pom poms, and glued them over the headband to the pom poms.
 

it gives makes the pom poms nice and secure.
 

get together this holiday season with your sister's or friends and make some of these while the guys watch football!

merry christmas!

These are so simple and cute I love it! You're so talented! I make headbands sometimes and when I don't feel like fussing with hot glue (I hate stopping to dab glue and then get those awful glue strings) I'll use double sided fabric tape. :) Keep up the great blogging!

I saved this tutorial when you wrote it and am trying it out today. I have all boys, but my nieces will love being recipients of my creations. I'll make sure to link back to this post when I finally get my creations photographed and posted to my blog. Thank you for sharing--I love the fabric you used!

Chiara said...

Here is the post with your blog link and my headbands. Thank you for photographing all the details--such as the ribbon ends on the headbands--I'm not always a perfectionist, so it helped me keep it clean and neat.
