Here’s a quick headband idea that I came up with for the 4th of July for youngest daughter, Lily. This is a very easy headband to put together at the last minute for the holiday.
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 Headband ( I got a mine from Walmart. You can get an entire 5 pack for a couple of dollars.)
- Felt in red, white, and blue
- Coordinating ribbon in red, white, and blue
- Tulle in red, white, and blue
- Hot Glue
- 3 buttons
I had the felt stars from last year. It’s a very thick felt. I know a lot of you won’t have this so here’s what you can do. You can either take the regular felt and cut a thinner star out or take fabric glue and glue a couple of pieces of felt together. After gluing the felt, I would place a couple of books on top of the sandwiched felt pieces, then cut them out. I know it’s frustrating to find a post that you like, but you don’t have the means of duplicating the product.
With my precut stars, I trimmed them down to fit my toddlers head and the headband better. Next, take the ribbon and create a cute flower by folding, looping and rotating it. Tack it into place with a needle a thread. You can do this as you go or at the very end. Sew the button in the middle of the flower.
Take a section of tulle and gather it. Attach it to the back of the star. Tack the ribbon flower with a button to the other side of the star.
Overlap the stars and either tack in place or very carefully hot glue them down. Glue the stars with the attached ribbon flower and tulle to the top side of the headband.
Cut a piece of felt that is slightly shorter than the length of the stars. Hot glue this to the stars on the underside of the headband and hold in place for a minute or two until it is secure.
Here you have a quick and cute 4th of July headband that will be a real show stopper.
Oh, was it hard to get good pictures of Lily in her headband. I just had to include these because they were too funny as she was hamming it up for the camera.
This was the best one out of all the photos I took…
Happy 4th of July!
