Felt Pinwheel Headbands

A while ago I shared with you how to make felt pinwheels to use as a gift wrap idea & today I'm sharing another idea of how to use the same kind of felt pinwheels.

This is a fast & simple little project. It's a really nice way to make a matching hair accessory for your little girl's favourite outfit.

Here's what you'll need to make one:

  • Felt in whatever colour you like
  • A large button
  • Headband
  • Scissors 
  • Thread
  • Hot glue gun
Using this template, cut out a square from your felt. Then cut the slits as shown.

Line up the edges (where the dots on the template are) to make the pinwheel & stitch the edges, adding the button to the top centre. 

Hot glue to the side of the headband.

Give it to your favourite little girl to model & enjoy!
