Supplies needed for DIY St. Patrick’s Day Felted Green Glitter Heart Headband:

- 2 sheets of green felt with adhesive backing
- green glitter glue
- double sided tape
- plastic headband with no teeth
- scissors or sewing shears
- 3/8” green satin ribbon
- hot glue gun
- place double sided tape on each end of headband and place a small piece of ribbon over both edges
- wrap ribbon tightly over headband at a slight angle. Keep placing pieces of double sided tape onto plastic headband so it keeps ribbon in place when wrapping. Continue till the end.
- Leave a small piece of ribbon when you get to the end and place a small drop of hot glue on inner edge of headband and wrap ribbon.
- Seal edge over and headband should be fully covered in ribbon.
- Measure headband onto head and measure where top of ears end. This is where your hearts will end.
- I stuck two green sheets of green felt together that have adhesive backing and cut out 6 equal sized large hearts. You can make 6 large hearts or 12 small hearts. Lay them out on a paper plate or sheet of paper.
- Create a visual layout of how you want the hearts to look.
- Place a large drizzle of glitter glue on a heart
- Using a paint brush, spread glue around. You can hold the heart in place with a toothpick so your heart does not slide all over the place.
- Repeat with remaining hearts. Dry with a blow dryer until the glue is dry, about 15-20 minutes or allow to dry overnight.
- Add hot glue onto headband above area where ear ends.
- Place heart on hot glue and press to adhere
- Repeat with other side and make sure hearts are facing in the same direction.
- Repeat with remaining hearts. Be sure to glue them evenly across headband.
You can overlap your hearts if they are large like mine is. They look really pretty overlapped. If you wear it with the tips of the hearts toward your face, it looks like a crown…just like a princess!
