Our yaya has been asking me for two things for our 3-month-old baby girl: (1) cute headbands and (2) have her ears pierced. Her reason was so that our baby girl will look like a “girl.” Having her ears pierced was out of the question for now, but the cute headbands, I don’t mind.
Now, for those who know me very well… I have always been into arts and crafts. In fact, I have a big wall full of crafting tools and supplies. So, when our yaya requested for headbands, I ended up making a few cute ones for our little baby girl. Here’s one of them that is quite easy to make:
What you need:
See the three looped strips of ribbon that are attached together in the center on the top photo? Those are 8.5 inches long each and are looped and sewn together. So, three strips of ribbon with an approximate 8.5 inch long each.
Add another strip at the back. This strip should be about 5-6 inches long. Trim both sides into an inverted arrow.
The last strip should be about 2-2.5 inch long. Make sure that it covers the bow vertically.
Stick them all together using the glue gun. You can also make sure that everything doesn’t move by sticking glue gun in between all the strips. Wrap the vertical strip, and seal with the glue gun. Make sure that you leave a space in between the strip and the bows. I will show you why later on…
Now, you can opt to use a hair clip, a headband, or in my case, a stretchy bow (as it is the safest for our baby girl):
Here is the finished product, as modeled by our baby girl LJ 🙂
I hope you like this post, and you find this project an easy one to make. This was my very first headband (with bow) project, and I have made a lot more versions. So, watch out for my DIY posts!
