DIY team spirit headband

I recently posted about being a Beaver fan and making these Oregon State University pillows. Well, I had (and still have) some leftover fabric, so I used a tiny little piece to make a team spirit headband!

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed this recent pin:

This, of course, led me to a tutorial for making fluffy little flowers, from Make It and Love It. I used this tutorial as inspiration, added a fabric covered button and elastic... and voila! A Beaver headband was born.

All you need is a fabric of your choice (I used three: black cotton, orange tulle, and white mesh), some ribbon for the headband (I used black velvet ribbon), a little piece of elastic (for stretch in the headband), and a button (or a fabric covered button) for the center. Check out the tutorial; it's pretty self-explanatory and has wonderful pictures to follow along!

P.S. I'll let you in on a little secret: Since I wasn't feeling well that day, I cheated and used a glue gun instead of my sewing machine-- It was way quicker and seems to be holding up perfectly fine :-)

Happy crafting!

This is too cute! I should make this for my husband's side of the family- they're HUGE sports fans and I can see my MIL wearing something like this! :)
Thanks for your sweet comments- glad you found the button tutorial helpful! I kinda love that site now, there are so many things I am still clueless about. Lol.
