How To Make It
  • 1

    Print the template and use the pieces to cut out the specified shapes from felt.

  • 2

    To create blossoms, layer the petals as shown, stitch through the stack one time, and knot the thread ends tightly. Note: they should be on the back.

  • 3

    For the wristbands, one option is to simply hot glue a button to a loop of decorative sewing elastic or a large stretchy hair tie, and then glue the button to the bottom of the blossom. Or, you can make an adjustable tie by threading thin ribbon or cord through two buttons, as shown, and knotting the ends so they can't slip back through the holes.

  • 4

    Create braids from lengths of thin gold cord, tying the ends as shown. Coil the tops of the braids and glue them to the flower centers.

  • 5

    Coil the tops of the braids and glue them to the flower centers.

Notes
Cutting and gluing should be done by an adult.
