DIY Headbands and Bows

I don't know if you've heard the phrase "the bigger the bow the cooler your mom."  I laugh sometimes when I see a precious little baby with a bow that is bigger than her head.  Now that I am a mother of a little girl, I'm afraid that may be me. :-)  I crocheted a few, but when I got on Amazon and found the shabby flower pack, I had to buy them. :-) 

So this is what I ordered/ bought.
  1. Cloris Shabby Flowers (14 Piece) 
  2. Crochet Elastic Headbands (24 Piece) 
  3.  These both came from China and it took a few weeks to get here but they both arrived in great condition.
  4. Clips - Like these: Hair Clips from Michael's

This is what I did:

  1. When they arrived, I hot glued the flowers on the headbands. I used a vase to hold the headbands, while I glued.
  2. Then I glued the flowers on the clips as well. 
  3. I used a piece of felt on the bottom side of the clip so that it would be softer for the baby.
  4. It was all very easy and super-cute. 
  5. You can also find these flowers and headbands at Walmart, JoAnns and Michaels in their craft sections, but I could not find them cheaper than on Amazon (even with shipping costs)


  1. Did you make the hair clip frame?? I did one of those for Lily but since she can only wear headbands we aren't getting much use out of it yet!!

  2. Yes - It was posted earlier ( http://rejoicinginthepresent.blogspot.com/2014/04/diy-bow-holder.html )....I'm sure T will mainly use headbands but when her hair grows out, we will have bows already made for her. :-)
