Rolled Felt Headband

Super cute right? Felt is so freakin’ fantastic I just can’t get enough of it!It’s my version of teh Burlap obsession going on! Now I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…. YOU HAVE TO GET THE GOOD STUFF!!! Really good Boiled Wool is way different then the sheets of felt you buy in the craft section! It’s becoming a staple supply in crafters collections so more and more fabric stores are carrying it! Heather Bailey carries a really good line of Felt so if all else fails and you can’t find some local Felt check her on line store and stock up.

Here is just one more thing you can create with Felt…and it takes the smallest amount!Save! Save! Save your felt scraps! They come in handy!!!

Here’s what you’ll need…

  • Felt! Imagine that!
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Rotary Cutter and straight edge…not a must but it sure does help!
  • Headband
  • Scissors
You’ll cut thin strips of felt 1/4″ wide by 6-10.” The longer your strip the larger your rolled felt piece will be! You’ll cut a variety of lengths!

Cut different lengths and colors.

Tightly roll each strip and secure the end with a dab of hot glue!

Roll and glue then all until you have a small collection.

Now we will glue our rolls down onto a piece of felt to create our design. Start with your center roll and adhere it with glue.


Continue adding each roll being sure you like its placement before you glue it down.


Cut out the entire design that you have glued onto the felt.

Lastly we’ll glue it to our headband and cover the back with one last piece of felt! I buy all my 3mm Wire Headbands from Trimweaver.com You can get a dozen for $7! LOVE that!



So so simple and fun! Easy and fast and totally customizable!Just imagine the color combos! I am in love with this simple process and can’t wait to bust out some more!

    Becca–thanks so much for linking this up, my daughter wants to make these. Did you see the rolled paper necklace in Flea Market Style? I thought the rolled paper would be cute on a headband too.

    Very unique! I'm linking up at CROQzine.com. And, you can also get metal headbands – about 6 for $1 at the Dollar Tree. Not sure how they compare in quality, but it would be worth comparing.

    I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A small number of my blog audience have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

    This is the perfect webpage for anyone who would like to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you
    (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic that has been written about for decades.
    Excellent stuff, just excellent!

    I’m gone to tell my little brother, that he should also pay a visit this web
    site on regular basis to get updated from hottest gossip.

    If you want a smaller but higher quality picture then a Plasma TV
    would be a good option as these can be purchased at sizes up to 65 inches, and therefore
    still providing you with a big screen viewing experience. It would be a dream

    If you have a home theatre system or a pair of loudspeakers then you will want to get the best
    possible sound quality and maximum potential from your speaker
