Simple no-sew tutorial for how to make a leaf crown baby headband.
I’m on a roll making baby accessories. If you didn’t see my previous posts from a few weeks ago be sure to check them out. You don’t want to miss them.
Today we’re going to be making a cute little leaf crown baby headband. You can do this by hand if you want to, but I just use my Cricut Maker because it was so fast. Seriously I love my Maker
How to make a leaf crown
I used some fleece that I had left over from another project where I made these cactus pincushions.
Put the fleece on the Cricut fabric cutting mat. Then you’re going to load it into the machine and have it cut on the fleece setting with the rotary blade.
After all of the leaves were cut I used some hot glue to make the leaves more three-dimensional. I did this by overlapping the leaf at the slit and sticking together with a dab of glue.
While those cooled, I took a pair of nylons that I bought at Dollar Tree and cut a 1″ strip from the leg of nylon.
The edges are going to curl. That’s their nature. No worries. If you want it wider you could always cut it a bit wider.
How to assemble a leave crown headband
Then I carefully arranged the leaves to get them to look just right. I started with one, and put a dab of glue on the bottom and glued it to the nylon headband.
Then I glued the second one overlapping the first. I put the point on top of the first one.
I continued doing the same thing with the remaining leaves.
I would overlap and change the angles some to give it a bit more interest.
Note that the leaves spacing will change then it’s on the babies head versus when it’s just sitting on the table.
That’s it. We’re done.
It was such a simple project, but it looks absolutely adorable!
You could do so many variations on this project such as flowers, butterflies, fall leaves, or snowflakes.
You could even add more leaves so they go all the way around.
