Tutorial: How to Make a Headband With a Tulle Puff

Ok, so I couldn’t just let that tutu go without a matching headband, right? That would just be a crying shame! So, I’m here to teach you how to make this super easy and adorable tulle puff crochet headband. Would you just love this for your next baby headband?

Crochet Headband Puff TutorialYou Will Need:

1 ½” Crochet Headbands



Rhinestones (or other embellishment)


Hot Glue Gun (not pictured)


Cut a piece of tulle about 3” wide.  Choose a spot on your headband where you’d like the puff to be ( I suggest the seam of the headband). Tie the piece of tulle between two of the holes in the crochet making sure that the ends are on the outside of the headband when you are done.

Step 1 Headband Puff TutorialContinue to tie tulle pieces in the holes until you are happy with how full your puff is looking. It will look a little weird at first, but keep going. I didn’t like mine at first either. I ended up with about a 2” width piece of my headband full of ties.

This is what it looked like on the inside of the headband when I felt like I was done tying.

Step 3 Headband Puff TutorialFluff out your puff and shape it a bit with scissors. Looking nice, right? You could just leave it this way. Or, even just put a rhinestone in the center.

Step 4 Headband Puff TutorialI like mine with a little bit more ‘stuff’. So, I added a little bit of aqua organza 3/8” ribbon and some swiss dot lavender 3/8” ribbon before topping it off with my rhinestone.

What do you think? Isn’t it cute? And so easy!  These aren’t just great infant headbands, but for girls, toddlers and even adults!  Give it a shot today!
