Hi all you SKIP TO MY LOU readers!!!

I’m Gillian Greding from SEASONS GREDINGS and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to be visiting here today!

Seriously– I’m pretty much freaking out! YAY!

Being that my blog is all about the seasons and holidays, I decided to bring you a

black felt

hot glue

skinny feathers

lace headband or any headband

spider web ring


Cut about 7 three inch circles (or kind of circles) out of felt

Fold circle in half

Then fold in half again forming a bud

Put threaded needle (tied in a knot on one end) through the bottom of the bud

Tie thread in a knot and now both sides of the bud are knotted

Thread another bud onto the needle

Pull bud next to the other bud and tie in another knot

Continue to do this knotting along the way until a flower forms

Then tie a final knot and cut the tail off

Cut another circle of felt, add glue and adhere it to the bottom of the flower

Make 2 flowers

Glue feathers onto the back of the flowers

Glue flowers together sideways

Cut a rectangle of netting and pinch in the middle

Add glue to the bottom of the two flowers and add netting

Glue a charm or ring onto the flowers

Add glue to the headband

Glue flowers to the headband

Cut a rectangle of felt the size of your flower base

Glue the rectangle to the back of the flower and headband to hide the mess

Ta Da!

A spooky, show-stopping headband filled with Halloween splendor!
