The first project on my Easter accessories list has been completed:
A Flower Headband!
Assembling this headband took less than five minutes.
And cost less than $1! Boutiques are asking $10-20 for similar styles.
Step 1: Deconstruct silk floral bouquet.
Step 2: Stack petals to desired thickness.
(I used two silk flowers to create one giant bloom)
Step 3: Insert a scrapbooking brad through the flower's center.
Step 4: Hot glue flower to side of headband.
(Be careful of placement; too high on top looks a little silly.)
Step 5: Add stability by gluing a circle of coordinating felt to the underside of the headband.
Also, while I was out at shopping yesterday, I came across these little crocheted hats and accompanying flower clips at Hobby Lobby:
I have seen very similar items (if not the exact same product!) at all kinds of baby stores and craft fairs for around twenty dollars, but I had no idea Hobby Lobby had them available for you to assemble yourself. At $3.99 a piece (and significantly cheaper if you use the printable 40% off coupon!) this is a great way to get the boutique look for less. (And no, I am not being paid by Hobby Lobby to advertise - I just love a good deal and had to pass it on!)
