    spooky clip

    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


    just in time to make for the Halloween season!

    scary headband

    baby halloween accessory

    spooky hair clip


    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!

      That headband is too cute. I have to admit I first read it as "headboard" and wondered why one would want a spooky headboard. Then as I looked at it I thought that looks like a chair to me. When I got to instructions, I finally read it correctly. Love the chair set up too.
