Boutique style baby head bands are so easy to make and you can make them way under budget. These head bands are very special to me as these are the first DIY project I did for my little one. After this project I made a lot of DIY decor projects for her nursery. So stay tuned for up coming posts but forgive me, it might take a while to post them all as I am busy loving my newborn.
Coming back to head bands, things you need:
- Pretty lace pieces of your choice (I got mine at local Joann craft store)
- Matching ribbon
- Satin ribbon flowers, big lace flowers or any other embellishments (optional)
- Thin elastic ( I used 0.25 inch thick braided elastic)
- Hot glue gun
Don't this list look so simple? I promise the procedure is as simple as the list.
For head band sizing information, you can google "Baby head band size chart" and you will find a ton of information.
For example new born's head band need to be approximately 11 to 12 inches, if you are making one for a new born cut your lace piece and elastic such that they both add up to 11 or 12 inches.
I just made my head bands in 3 different sizes to use them as baby grows.
Cut lace and elastic pieces according to measurements you choose. Cut 2 pieces of ribbon about 1.5 inch each.
Join one end of elastic to one end of lace using little hot glue, dab little more hot glue and wrap the joint around with a ribbon piece.
Similarly join the other end of lace to other end of elastic and wrap the joint with ribbon using hot glue.
Cut any excess ribbon left at the joints. If you like add a pretty flower or bow to make it even more gorgeous.
That's it you just made a pretty head band. Isn't it the easiest craft you ever made?
Here are a couple more headbands I made for my little angel. Try using thicker lace or elastic bands with beautiful vintage style lace flowers for a glamorous look.
These handmade headbands take very little time to make for your baby girl and they can add a touch of love to your baby shower gifts. I hope you enjoy making these as well. I love to hear your comments. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day :)
