Ladybug Hair Adornments



Turn a felt bracelet blank into a charming hair band with a few beads and stitches. And stitch a few leaf brooches for hair pins too!

Ladybug Adornments

  • Feltworks four petal flowers
  • Feltworks spiral bracelet olive
  • Blue Moon mini bead mix: light and dark amber
  • Ladybug beads
  • Large eye beading needle or beading needle

Hair Band

  1. Select five leaves and set others aside to make pins later. 
  2. Mix light and dark amber mini bead mixes together on a plate.
  3. Thread needle and knot end. Bring needle up through back of a leaf (I started near bottom at center of stem). You want to leave about 1/8 allowance as you bead around the leaf edge. String on 6 mini beads in random order and bring needle down into the felt. Bring needle back up between third and fourth bead and bring thread through fourth, fifth, and sixth beads again. String on 6 more mini beads in random order and repeat the backstitch. Continue until you’ve outlined the leaf with beads.
  4. Now bead on the center vein of the leaf with same process as used in Step 3. The backstitch secures the string of beads making it more stable. When done knot off and make 5 beaded leaves for headband. You can make beaded leaf pins or even earrings with the remaining leaves.
  5. Unfurl the spiral wool bracelet. The wire inside of bracelet can be molded to a headband shape. Find center. Glue 3 wool felt flowers just off center. To that side adhere 2 of your beaded leaves. To the opposite side adhere 3 of your leaves.
  6. Adhere ladybug beads to two of the leaves. One on each side.


You can bead the leftover leaves from the embellishment package and turn them into pins. Bead the leaf as instructed in Steps 3 and 4. Trace the leaf outline onto lightweight cardboard. Trim 1/8” giving you a slightly smaller shape than the felt leaf. Adhere to back of leaf. Trace the leaf outline onto green sheet felt and cut out just slightly smaller than leaf. Adhere to back of leaf to cover cardboard and give support to your pin. Adhere a ladybug bead to front. Add pinback finding. 


Another Idea!  


Using a pre-made seed bead necklace in gold. Attach beaded left to strands by sewing a ladybug bead through left, around strands, and back through several times. Add a second ladybug bead if desired. Using a pre-made necklace makes this an easy necklace to make.
