- Felt circles
Embellishments: tulle, pearls, feathers, beads, buttons,
Optional for hair: headbands, clips, bobby pins
Step by step
First of all cut out a template of 5-7 circles on card stock paper. Make additional circle, each circle ½ inch bigger than the next. If you use dark marker, then cut it inside marker line so that it’s doesn’t show on the fabric. Next take each circle and put it close to the flame so that it curl slightly. Turn the circle around so that all edges are curled. Now put dot of hot glue onto the bottom/middle of smallest circle. Then layer it inside the next biggest circle. Now take these two circles and put hot glue and layer it into the next circle. Continue the process until all circles are glued together.
