Burlap flower headband


Close to my Heart has this awesome burlap ribbon that can be used for so many different things! I love hats and headbands, and like it even better when they are cheap and cute! Haha. So taking about 3 ft of the burlap ribbon, I threaded through the "bottom" of the ribbon. Once I had threaded through the entire 3 ft, I pulled the thread tight, cinching up the one side. Be sure to hold the end of the thread so it just doesn't pull through. Once I had the ribbon as tight as I wanted I curled it to look like a flower and tied the two ends of the ribbon together. I placed a few dots of glue from the glue gun around the flower to kind of hold the shape. Then glued down a button in the middle.
So cute. I had an old T-shirt kicking around that didn't fit anymore, so I took out my scissors and cut a headband out of the middle of the shirt. I then glued the flower to where the seam on the T-shirt was so as to cover it up.
I've had lots of comments on the headband and even a few requests to make more! They are so simple, give it a try!
