Make a beautiful hair accessory using our La Fleur Headband Tutorial. These headbands use our ready made flowers, are so simple, but impressive. Read more to see how to make your own.


Hi, I’m Terra from mama says sew .

Today I’m here to show you how to make this headband using the Fleur
flower from The Ribbon Retreat. I named the headband after the flower,
but I don’t speak French, so I have no idea if that is grammatically correct. The
only reason I know Fleur is French is because of Harry Potter.

My daughter loved this headband so much that she wore it to her dance lesson. The
nice thing about using elastic is it fits me too. I also love using elastic for
headbands, because it is so comfortable. Want to make your own?

You will need:

French Veil Netting
Fleur Flower {3 of them}
(I used Dark Coral, Antique White, and Ivory)
Felt Circles
Skinny Elastic {I used 1/8″}

All supplies can be purchased here at The Ribbon Retreat.

Glue the pearlies to the centers of the flowers.

Cut the elastic to the length you want for the headband and use hot glue to glue the
ends together. Make sure the elastic is flat all the way around. You don’t want it to
twist. Here is a size guide if you need it.

Glue the flowers to the elastic where the ends of the elastic meet. Keep in mind the
elastic will stretch, so you may want to glue them close together. That way, when the
headband is worn, elastic won’t peek out between the flowers.

Glue the felt circles to the backs of the flowers, on the other side of the elastic.
I had to trim my circles slightly.

It should look like this. You can stop here, or add the French Veil Netting.

Cut a rectangle of netting a couple of inches wider and longer than the flowers. You
can trim it to fit if you need to. Pinch each end and use a dab of hot glue at each
end to hold it in place.

Insert one end between a flower and the felt circle behind it and glue in place. Do
the same on the other end.
