Oh Baby! continues with a headband project!
One of the things I’m most looking forward to with having a little girl is getting to do her hair, which early on will mean headbands. I’ve had white and pink elastic lace in my craft stash for a while, and knew I wanted to make headbands for my little, but it was hard to commit to just a few flowers without knowing what outfits I’d want to pair them with. I didn’t want to waste my elastic on a headband I wouldn’t love, or waste a perfect flower on a band that she’d grow out of in a few months.
So I came up with an interchangeable headband idea—where the same band of elastic can sport the peach flower one day, white another, and red yet another time.
Or where this pink band can be paired with a fun variety of ruffled flowers.
I made four bands—one of each color in the 0-3 month size and one of each color in 3-6 months size.
And 10 flowers (which can be added to), and thanks to the wonder of snaps…
I have countless headband possibilities!
I used some flowers I’d made over a year ago and others that I had been sent by a sponsor from Etsy once. Some of them needed to be backed with felt, others needed to have a new snap back added. So I cut out some circles in varying sizes from felt and added half of a snap to each. (I used my Gripper Plier for Snaps that I bought at Joann’s with a coupon a few years ago and have loved having ever since!)
Then I cut my elastic to the right length and used the other side of the snap to hold the two ends together.
Because I didn’t want the metal back of the snap rubbing or irritating the baby’s head…
I hot glued a small piece of felt over it, and made sure the ends of the elastic were well held together with more hot glue.
Then I added the snap backs to the flowers.
And now I have lots of headbands I can change out for her outfits!
