I did a TV segment yesterday featuring hair accessories, so I thought I better post them for everyone else to see. :) I love these flowers. They are OH so girly, and so fun to make!

They are so simple to make and look so cute on little girls. I even wear them in my hair too! I wish I had taken a better shot of that beige and turquoise one above… it’s my fave!

Ruffled Lace Flower


1. Cut out a 2in felt circle and about 20 inches of lace trim. The lace trim can be found at most fabric stores and comes in many different colors and sizes.

2. Apply glue around one corner. Place the lace trims raw edge directly on the glue. Keep gluing (about an inch at a time) and follow the curve with the lace, pressing it down as you go.

3. Angle the lace down slightly and keep gluing around the circle till you reach the center and have a full flower.

4. I cut my lace here, so I could leave room for a button.

Then I glued the button in the center and applied stretchy elastic to the back. You could also add a clip or pin. There’s so many different things you could do with these flowers. Attach them to a purse, put them on pillows… get creative!

  13. What a beautiful baby! The head bands are cute too. I wish I could get craft shows in Ohio. There use to be some but I have’t seen any for a while.

    • would these fit if they were made entirely out of strtech lace vs. knits? that’s the style of my current favorite store-bought panties. (Hahahahaha, as if anyone ever thought there’d be a need to identify particular panties as store-bought versus others. hahahahahaha)

  14. These are just too cute and your little girl is precious! How fun to have done a tv segment on these. Why didn’t you share the link so we could all see it? I’d love to watch it!

    Greetings from Germany

  26. I love how simple this is. I have 3 girls and we go through a number of hair accessories. Thanks for the inspiration. I am pinning this. Visiting from Show and Tell Saturday. Vicky from Mess For Less

  27. Those are so fun and cute. The blue color is so pretty. Thanks for sharing how fun and easy these are to make.

  40. Oh how “I heart” these headbands!!! I would like to invite you to share this post with our readers for Fun Stuff Fridays.

  41. Hi,

    This is sooo helpful! I have a little 4 month old girl so I wanted to try and make one! Thanks :)

    One question though, where do you get the stretchy elastic? Whenever I look at the craft stores I never seem to find any!


  42. Sooooo gorgeous!!! I’ve pinned this to my must do’s!
    Thanks so much for sharing :)

  43. Love! So cute! I would like to know as others have asked, where you got those adorable elastics? :)

  44. These are adorable! I’ve seen several over comments asking the same thing I was wondering, but didn’t see an answer posted. Where in the world did you find the cute lace elastic for the headband?? I cannot find it anywhere but would love to make some! Thanks!

  45. Love the idea of these, but I had some real trouble with it! Maybe it was the type of lace I bought but I could not get it to lay flat for the life of me! Finally I took a thread and needle and hand sewed a loose stitch through it and ruffled it more. Then I was able to get the same look. These were tougher than they look but worth it!

  46. What is the headband made from?

  47. Thanks for this great tutorial – I just made my first one! The glue is drying now, and I can’t wait to try it on my little cutie!

  48. I want to know about the adorable headbands as well! I’ve looked all over for it with no luck!

  49. I cant find that lace trimming anywhere!! Does anyone know where I can find it?

  50. I love these and have already started making some. I am wondering though where you got your colored lace. I am having trouble finding some I like.

  51. Hi!!!

    I LOVE this flower, it is so gorgeous and so easy! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I do have a question if I may – where did you get your bright pink and turquoise lace from?

    I’m in Australia and it is near on impossible to find anything that isn’t white, red, black, baby blue. baby pink or cream. Boring!

    Thanks so much!! xx

  52. Where do you find the stretchy elastic? I haven’t been able to find it anywhere :( Our hobby lobby doesnt seem to carry it and I couldn’t find it at Micheal’s either. These headbands are adorable!!


  53. Where can you buy pretty headband elastic like you have above?

  54. How wide of trim do you usually use?

  55. CGirl You’ve got me thinking about the Red Dirt Roads now! In Oak Barn!Funny last Saturday when I was sneittg up at the trunk show I was hanging a skein of Red Dirt Roads in Oak Barn and thought to myself maybe I should set that aside for myself

  56. I love the cute flower you made. I can’t wait to try this.

  57. LOVE these flowers. Where do you get the stuff to make the headband part?

  58. Thanks so much for sharing! Fantastic tutorial :)
    I’ve blogged about one I made & linked to you here…
    Thanks again x

  59. Ok so I am IN LOVE with these. I don’t have a baby girl yet but I would love to make some for other’s baby girls or some for me when I have a baby girl ONE DAY (fingers crossed!) but I have a problem… I went to JoAnn’s and looked in what seemed like the lace/ruffle section but I didn’t see anything that looked quite like what you used. (also SUPER lacking in cute colors). I’m not sure if I was looking in the wrong place or the wrong store altogether. So my really stupid question is, what exactly is it called that I am looking for, as in the lace to make the flower and the stretchy kind for the headband?

  60. Sooooo Darling!!!! Love them. Can I ask where you get your lace and elastic???

  61. Ok ,so, I love these lace flowers!! Was directed to your site from this being pinned and cant wait to have time to look around some more. But, the main reason for my writing is that my sweet girl’s name is also Emmalyn. This is the only other time I’ve seen it spelled the same way, so I just had to comment. Love it!

  62. These are just to cute.

  63. Alexandria Conner Reply

    I am about to make these right now. I absolutely love them!! :) Thanks for sharing! <3

  64. So cute! I never would have thought this up myself! THanks for sharing, i can’t wait to try it out for my little Makenna! :)

  65. Hi, I was lead to your blog from pinterest. Can you please share where you purchased your lace trim? I have looked everywhere and cannot find any.

  66. adorei a idéia !!!!!
    Parabéns !!!!


  67. Do you mind if I make and sell these?

  68. Did you use 5/8 inch or 1 1/4 lace trim ? SO cute ! Thanks :)

  69. Where did you find that lace?? I can’t find any that thin!

  70. Thanks for sharing these instructions! Your steps are easy to follow!

  71. Just wondering if that is a hot glue gun you are using, or what type of glue?

  72. This is adorable. I just have a question: I don’t have any children but I want to make this for a one year old, about how long should the elastic be that goes around their head?

    • Hi Lianne! I am not sure how long it should be for a one year old. If my daughter was younger, I would go and measure it around her head, but she is older now so it would be different! I hope you got it figured out!

  73. I was just wondering how you get your lace to lay flat?

  74. HI! Love this tutorial! Was wanting to leave you a private message but didn’t know how! Found your photo being used by someone else as their own! Link here: 

  75. So cute! Sorry if I missed this somewhere but curious what size lace trim you used for this flower? An inch? Also, about what size is her lace headband? Maybe 1/4 – 1/2 inch? 

  76. I’m definitely making this for my baby girl. I’m sure it will be sooo cute on her :)

  77. Where did you get the lace trim?
