Spring has sprung and I’ve been cooking up some fun and easy DIY projects to celebrate. This sweet daisy headband is a very simple project and makes for a lovely pop of color perfect for wearing with your favorite spring dress.

What You Need

• Cardboard
• Pins
• Yarn needle
• Sewing needle & thread
• Sewing machine (optional)
• Scissors
• Pencil
• X-acto knife
• Cutting board
• Craft glue
• Ruler
• Ribbon
• Yarn
• Elastic

STEP ONE:

Using your x-acto knife cut 2 cardboard circles, 2″ in diameter. I used the lid of a spice jar as my template.

STEP TWO:

Draw lines across one of the cardboard circles to create 12 sections (like a pie). Then write corresponding numbers near the end of each line (see photo below for reference).

STEP THREE:

Glue the two cardboard circles together and insert 12 pins around the edge of the cardboard circle (following the lines you just drew).

STEP FOUR:

Hold the end of the yarn down with your left thumb. Then, working in a clockwise direction, pass yarn with the right hand from left to right around pin 1. Pass yarn across the center and from right to left around pin 2 (opposite), going back across center. From left to right around pin 3, and right to left around pin 4. Continue until all pins have been wrapped (once if using thick yarn, several times if using thin yarn) and cut, leaving a tail about 12″ long.

STEP FIVE:

Take your yarn needle and thread the tail of the yarn. Work 13 back stitches, passing the needle under 2 petals and back over 1. Make sure to do all 13 back stitches or the center will not be complete. Work in the starting end with weaving stitches to bind it firmly, and tie both yarns together at the top side of the daisy (this will be the back when daisy is finished).
