As some of you may know, I have 2 little children. My son Dhruv is 4 and my daughter Kyra is 2. When I was expecting Kyra, I was really hoping for a little girl, one that I could doll up with pretty dresses, hair accessories and shoes. I was thrilled when she was born and began the dolling up almost instantly. But it is only now, when her hair has really grown long that I can devote my time to her hair accessories. I once did some hair clips using ItsyBitsy supplies which you can see here. This time I decided to make a hairband full of ItsyBitsy blooms and here's how it turned out.
I started with a regular plastic store bought hairband which I then proceeded to wrap in floral tape from ItsyBitsy. Floral tape has this excellent property, it's sticky enough to stick to itself but generally not sticky, perfect for these kind of projects. My daughter has this lovely pink and blue dress that her grandmother bought her. I decided my hairband was going to be for that dress. After the floral tape, I pretty much just glued down all the roses in a line and added some ribbon as a final touch. Here's a closeup.
To see how I did it step by step, here's a video tutorial for you!
And here's little Kyra modelling the hairband. Like most little girls, she LOVES to dress up so she gladly put on the dress, happily let me brush her hair and was thrilled to have the hairband as a matching accessory. As you can see from the photos below, she was happy to pose for photos too!!
What do you think of my floral headband project? Do you think you would like to do something like this for your little girl? Leave a comment and let me know. Would love to hear from you!
