Christmas Flowers and Headbands

With every great outfit comes great accessories…right?!? Accessories add that final touch of perfection to those favorite outfits and today, Terra from Mama Says Sew is showing us how to create some fabulous Christmas accessories that consist of beautiful flowers, stunning velvet ribbon and a simple pearl embellishment, to add to your little one’s perfect Christmas outfit! Enjoy!

Hi, it’s Terra from mama says sew. I’m here to share a tutorial for these Christmas flowers and headbands using products from The Ribbon Retreat.

Both of the headbands are made using velvet ribbon, but really, you could use any ribbon. Since ribbon doesn’t stretch, just use a ponytail holder, and voila! Easy headbands with lots of different possibilities. I think these would be fun using the printed ribbon too.

I also used satin ribbon to create these little flowers.

You will need:
7/8 inch satin double faced ribbon
pearlies-14mm
7/8 inch velvet ribbon
ponytail holder
needle and thread
glue gun

Pearls
Velvet Collage
Satin Collage

First, cut a length of ribbon for the headband. Make sure it’s long enough to wrap around the person’s head.

For the bow headband, cut two lengths of ribbon. One should be about 6 1/2 inches, the other about 2 1/2 inches.

To form the headband, wrap the ends of the ribbon around a ponytail holder and glue in place.

Take the 6 1/2 inch piece and fold both ends to the center and glue.

Take the 2 1/2 inch piece of ribbon and wrap around the center to form a bow.

To make the ribbon flowers, cut five strips of ribbon about 2 1/2 inches long and use fray check or heat seal both ends so they won’t fray.

Double thread your needle and knot the ends securely. Run a stitch down the short end, along the bottom, and back up the other short end.

    I am so in love with these headbands! When it comes to apparel and accessories, nothing says Christmas to me like velvet! And the satin flowers are just too sweet! Oh, and using pony-o’s to give the headband a bit of stretch is just brilliant! Thank you, Terra.: ) xoxo
