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.
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…
