Crochet Rose Hairband – DIY

I love hair accessories for my kids. I had seen this kind of hairband in the market and wanted to make one for my kid. I had some length of blue crochet thread (the one that is used to make purses, totes, and bags). I also had a plain black metal hairband. Twenty minutes and this hairband was ready. It looked great and sat pretty in her hair.

There is no video tutorial though, because I was the only one at home and couldn’t crochet and make the video at the same time. So please bear with me. I am posting instead another similar video tutorial for a crocheted rose.

Now, I am a crochet geek, so I know the basics. But if you don’t know crocheting, you will find all that you need to learn here.

This tutorial uses a trim as well. I didn’t have any contrasting thread to trim so I didn’t do it. Instead I stitched a silver round button. I usually keep a large stock of colorful buttons at home. You never know when you are going to need one.

Then I inserted the flower into the hairband and then used a bit more thread to secure it. The flower remains suspended though, so you can change which side it should go to.

Other interesting ideas to use this with:

  • Insert a safety pin in this and use it as a brooch
  • Insert it in a safety pin and use it on a crocheted or a plain sun hat for an interesting look
  • Make tiny roses with a thin thread and use them instead of buttons
  • Make tiny roses and embellish a plain frock or a dupatta with these.
  • Make large roses and sew them end to end to make a delightful winter scarf
  • Attach a thread to one end and use it as a book mark

The possibilities are endless. Once you know how to crochet this rose, you can use it almost anywhere, just brew your imagination a little. 😉
