Hi everyone! I’m Terra from mama says sew and I’m here to show you how to make this gorgeous French Twist Flower Headband, using supplies from The Ribbon Retreat.

It features the French Twist Flower from The Ribbon Retreat. They have 19 different colors. Since the flower is already made, this is a snap to put together. I also love the vintage feel that French Veil Netting gives. You can use it in so many ways for hair accessories.

You will need:

Metal Headband
Felt Circles
Antique Mix Vintage Tin (buttons)
French Twist {3 of them}

French Veil Netting

Pick out three buttons from your Vintage Tin {I believe each one has a unique
assortment} and glue them to the centers of your flowers. I held the center of the
flower open with one hand and covered the button shank in hot glue, then glued it on.

Glue the flowers to your headband. They come with felt circles attached, which is
helpful.

Then glue on three more felt circles on the other side of the headband to secure the
flowers in place.

    I love this project, but I can’t get the netting quite right. Mine doesn’t look as crinkled as the one in the picture. Any suggestions or further explanation about how to do the netting?

    I’d love to help you get the netting how you want it. I cut mine with the width of the fabric, so the diamonds in the netting are oriented vertically. You could also try cutting it longer, so that there is more of it when you pinch it in the center. Let me know if I can help further!
