DIY Tulle Baby Headbands

Recently I had this opportunity to plan my cousin’s baby shower, and I thought it would be perfect to try my hand at making some baby headbands since it was going to be a girl. I thought of my flower pom pom tutorial, but wasn’t sure that paper would be so durable as a headband, so I thought of using tulle! It’s a pretty easy project, so read on to see how we made these DIY tulle baby headbands. 

Materials: 

  • 6 inch wide tulle 
  • Twine
  • Scissors 
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Decorative elastic 
  • Felt sheets

Step 1: Cut about 3 meters of tulle.

Step 2. Fold the tulle in a 4-inch accordion style similar to what I’ve done here with the tissue pom pom garland tutorial.

Step 3: When you’re done folding it, cut two triangles in the middle. Tie a piece of twine tightly around it.

Step 4. Use a pair of scissors to round the two edges.

Step 5: Start opening up the tulle puff until it becomes a rounder, flower-shaped pom pom.

Step 6: Cut out 2-inch diameter circles out of the felt sheet. Put a bit of hot glue onto the back of the tulle puff and attach one of the felt circles on it.

Step 7: Attach the decorative elastic using hot glue onto the felt circle. I used only 12 inches of it as I had intended for a newborn to be wearing the headband. Plus, the elastic helps the headband last a little longer for the baby.

Step 8: Use hot glue again to hide the elastic ends.

And that’s it! With 1 meter of the elastic you can make a number of these headbands already and you can even attach two tulle puffs instead of just one, or use a different coloured tulle for a different effect. I didn’t have a baby model to show how
