The other day I caught my 3 year old being bored. She had peeled the ribbon off one of her headbands. I looked at the headband trying to figure out a way to salvage it and make it cuter. It was poorly made. The ribbon was no longer sticking. Besides it was kind of drab. So, I decided to go through my craft box and figure something out.
I sew a bunch of flowers at the same time and then wait to either attach them to a cloth headband or barrettes. I had never thought of putting them on a headband suitable for a toddler. I decided on the flower and went to work.
Jewel or button etc. for center of flower
Step 1: Start wrapping and gluing the headband with desired color and thickness of ribbon.
Step 2: Seal ribbon at ends with a dab of hot glue.
Step 3: Glue on flower anywhere on the headband.
And there you have it a simple and thrifty way to make over a headband.
