DIY: felt flower brooch / Sheepy Me. This Friday instead of Little box of treasures I decided to make a nice project.

Well in one episode she wore this gorgeous gold knot headband that I fell in love with. I eventually DIY'ed it and because it was such a simple project I decided I wanted to make more now that my craft store got in new rope.Supplies- 2 yards of craft cording- any size you like is fine Headband- make sure it's wide enough for two strands of the cording to cover.
