How to easily make a cheerful spring daffodil headband

Now that is spring, soon all the daffodils will be popping up. In fact, mine have been trying to pop up for a couple days now. So to liven up your moods this Easter in lieu of an Easter bonnet why not wear a cheerful spring daffodil headband instead?

This little daffodil flower is super easy to make and the spring daffodil headband would look great on a baby as well.

So let’s get started!


  • Mini Bowdabra with hair bow tool and ruler attachment
  • 1 ½” wide yellow wired ribbon
  • 1” wide dark green grosgrain ribbon
  • White sparkle tulle cut to 1 ½” wide about 8 inches long
  • Yellow yarn
  • Headband in a spring color
  • Scissors
  • Pinking shears (paper shape cutters will not work on the ribbon)
  • Ruler
  • Clear nail polish (or lighter)

  1. Gather all your supplies.


  1. Prepare all your ribbon pieces. Cut three pieces of green grosgrain ribbon 5 inches long. Fold and cut in the opposite way you make a dovetail to make a point on each end. Set aside. Seal the ends with a lighter or clear nail polish.

  1. Next, cut three pieces of yellow wired ribbon 5 ½” long. Using scissors cut around each end to make a curved shape. Brush the ends with some clear nail polish to seal. Set aside.

  1. Now, cut 2 more pieces of the 1 ½”yellow wired ribbon 3 inches long. Curve the ends with pinking shears. Use clear nail polish to seal the ends.

Make the daffodil

  1. Cut a piece of yellow yarn, fold in half and insert into the Mini Bowdabra. You will have a loop on one side and two loose ends on the other, which will be your slipknot. Tuck the ends under to keep out of the way while you make your daffodil.

  1. Finally, insert the tulle from the top like an accordion. Scrunch down with the Bowdabra wand. Insert the two loose pieces of yarn through the loop and pull tight while the daffodil is still in the Bowdabra. Remove from the Bowdabra, separate the ends, turn to the back and tie a knot.

Finishing your daffodil

  1. Now shape your daffodil. Fan out the petals and cut the center around the tulle. Since the petals are wired it is very easy to shape.

  1. Use the excess yarn to tie to the headband. If this is for an infant the yarn is gentle on the babies head.  You have an adorable spring daffodil headband to wear this Easter!
