Oh did I get the DIY accessory bug after I made that last minute headpiece for the Fourth of July!  I just HAD to make a flower cluster headpiece.   I’ve had to wear headbands for several months now because I am growing out my hair.  Did you know I had a shaved head?  Yep… that picture over there to your right?  The sides of my head are shaved.  Don’t believe me?  Here’s proof:

Oooops! It looks like my daughter didn’t like that I shaved my head in that last picture! When I had that haircut, my husband had to shave my head for me every two weeks…that’s love! I had it that way for 425 days before I decided that I didn’t want to have a shaved head once I reached 40 years old and I knew it would take a while to grow back! So now that I have to wear headpieces all the time to cover up the weird growth on the side of my head I have decided to do this tutorial.


  • Felt
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Flower craft embellishments
  • Tulle
  • Hair clip


There is no exact science to this due to personal style, but I simply arranged the embellishments until I liked the way it looked.

Hot glue your arrangement onto the felt.

Cut the excess felt off around the back of your headpiece with scissors.

Hot glue the arrangement to your hair clip.

I clipped it to a headband in this photo. I like using hair clips and headbands separately so that I can interchange the style depending on my outfit. Oh! And there is an added bonus! This giant headpiece hides my gray hair perfectly!
