Pin It
This is another post that I'm moving from my crochet blog I'm trying to get shut down. I had a tutorial for the Blooming Headband on here and the flower pattern on my crochet blog. I thought I would combine them so you can find them both in the same place. The pictures will have my crochet blog name watermark I didn't redo them, sorry!

Blooming Headband
Here is a fun little headband you can make using the pattern.

Yes an Antrho Knock-Off!

I came across this little headband at anthro...

Pretty cute I thought but it was $32 not going to pay that amount! I had everything on hand to make it myself so I did.

Here is how I made it...
First off I crocheted four of the flowers. You only need two if you want it to be more like the Anthro one but I wanted mine a bit fuller.

On a plastic headband add a small amount of hot glue to the end and attach the yarn you will be using.

Begin wrapping the yarn around the headband wrapping closely together so the headband doesn't show through on the top side.

Continue wrapping until the whole headband is covered glue the yarn down on the the end of the headband.

Glue small pieces of ribbon up over the ends of the headband.

Glue another small piece of ribbon around the ends of the other piece of ribbon making a nice finished end.

Glue your crocheted flowers on your headband.

Glue on pearl beads to the middle of your flowers and your done.

Your done, enjoy your new Blooming headband!

Make sure you check out the places I party!
