Most little girls love fairy tales just as much as mine do. So when we heard that Netflix had started streaming Ever After High: Spring Unsprung the girls of course wanted to watch it! If you haven't heard of Ever After High yet, the premise is that fairy tale characters eventually grow up and have families. Ever After High is about their children. It's a fresh take on traditional fairy tales.
Netflix sent us a fun box of goodies to make our Ever After High viewing party even more fun – and the girls had a blast playing with necklaces and making cute signs with phrases about school on them. They also absolutely adore the Ever After High dolls. We have Briar Beauty (Sleeping Beauty's daughter) and Cedar Wood (Pinocchio's daughter) and they're both very fun.
However, a party in our house just isn't a party without a craft! So we decided it needed to be a rose craft since the dolls have pretty rose headbands on them. We decided to make simple rose headbands to make the party even more special. They only take about $5 in supplies and 30 minutes to make.
Spring is in the air, so your child can wear this headband even after they're done watching Ever After High: Spring Unspring. If this looks like an accessory your daughter would love to wear, here is how you can get started making one.
- Elastic headband (Sold in packs of 4 at Dollar Tree)
- Silk rose flowers (Dollar Tree, $1 a bundle)
- Spring ribbon, your choice of color or pattern
- Hot glue, glue gun
As you can see, these are supplies that are easy to find and only cost a few dollars. Our total cost was around $5, and we had plenty of supplies to make several bands if we wanted.
- Begin by cutting several lengths of ribbon. Fold them in half and secure the shape with a dab of hot glue. You want to fold it so the patterned side is facing outward on each end of the strip. Repeat with additional pieces of ribbon if you want the headband to be really full.
- Snip of the heads of the roses. Cut as close to the head as you can, as any extra stem will make the rose hard to glue.
- Add some glue to the bottom of your ribbons and press them to the headband. Hold in place until secure.
- Add a generous amount of glue under the rose and press it directly over the ribbon. Hold in place until secure.
Once your embellishments are dry, your headband can be enjoyed while you're screening Ever After High:Spring Unsprung on Netflix!. Gather your supplies and give this easy children’s rose headband a try. It is the perfect spring accessory!
