DIY Fall Hairband Craft for Kids

Little girls just love hair accessories! Of course, “the brighter, the better” is the general motto for choosing the perfect piece. 


When they’re made with their own two hands, the accessories are even more treasured and little ladies just love to show off their creative crafting skills.

This simple fall-themed hair band is easy to make for girls as young as 5 years old, and is versatile enough to last the fall season through.

Supplies
  • Fall colored felt (red orange and yellow used here)
  • Button
  • Hair band
  • Brown embroidery floss
  • Glue
Directions

Step 1: Draw 1 inch, 2 inch and 3 inch circles on three different colors of felt in fall colors. Have your crafty princess cut each of the circles out. The beauty of this project is that the circles do not have to be perfect, and the head band will actually look a little better and much more artistic if the circles are a tad lopsided.

Step 2: Stack the circles with the largest on the bottom and the smallest on top. Be sure that the pen marks face down when the circles are stacked. Place a button on top.

Step 3: From here, the assembly depends on the skill level of the child. If they’re pretty young and cannot handle the needle, each piece of the stack can be glued down and let dry. If they’re a little older, have them thread a length of brown embroider floss in a needle with a wide eye.

From underneath, press the needle up through all three layers of felt through the button hole. Continue to sew the pieces together as if you were sewing on a button three or four times. Tie off the thread and cut any excess away.

Step 4: A little bit of hot glue will attach the felt circles to the headband.

It’s best to position the adornment/band on the wearer’s head first before gluing down.
