We love getting crafty as the seasons change. We decided to make simple rose headbands since beautiful flowers are blooming everywhere.
You can easily customize this DIY headband by swap the roses for your child’s favorite flower. Or by choosing a different type or color ribbon or headband.
The entire craft only takes about $5 in supplies and 30 minutes to make. If this looks like an accessory your daughter would love to wear, here is how you can get started making one.
How to Make a Rose Headband
- 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 worn.
