|Fern's handmade headband!|
We made girlie headbands! So super-duper easy-peasy that YOU can make some too! We made one for Fern and one for a friend. Want to know how to make one too?
We visited the $2 shop to start with and chose the following materials at a total cost of $7.50
Embellishments: flowers, butterflies, beads, birdies, ribbons, crochet bits -- anything goes!
Hot glue gun (or strong craft glue)
The first thing we did was tear a thin strip of fabric and wrap it tightly around the whole headband, fastening at each end with the hot-glue gun.
Then, I glued a piece of vintage crochet I found lying around and one of the butterflies from the $2 shop onto the side. (ooops no pic of this step!)
We then started twisting the fabric flowers around the side and top of the headband:
And truly, the whole thing took <30 mins and this is the finished product:
As mentioned previously, we made two -- one for Fern and one for a friend at preschool who will be getting a little surprise in her cubicle this week! We hope she likes it!
Give it a go with your little girl one rainy day... you can't get this project wrong and you can go to creative town! Enjoy! xx
