Ok, so this has absolutely nothing to do with cookies. But I just had to share. I saw a little girl at a party last weekend wearing The. Cutest. Headband. Ever. So being the creative chick that I am, I asked her if I could borrow it for a second. A trip to Walmart and 45 minutes later, my girls have new headbands! And they LOVE them. So do I. They're a little on the crazy side, but my Hailey loves to be very girly, so these were right up her alley. And that's the fun of making them on your own. You can get as wild as you want, and they are still adorable and so much fun. Here's the scoop on how to make your own . . .
I bought the three pack of headbands at Walmart, for $2.97. They're the medium thickness ones, not really wide, not the thin ones. Then I bought three spools of ribbon, for $1.94 each, since I wanted three different designs. Then three large fake flowers, $.97 each. You want to look for the flowers that are kind of flat on the bottom. You can fix them if they're not, two of mine weren't, but it's easier if it's already done for you. Walmart is not my favorite place by any means, but I was already there (that's another story, it was late, and I really wanted to get out for a little while, and where's a girl to go?!). Plus, they have cheap ribbon and cheap fake flowers. Not a big selection, but sometimes you can get lucky.
Ok, so on with the instructions. You'll need about a yard and a half of ribbon. Wrap it around the headband, using hot glue to secure each wrap on the underside of the headband. You might have to glue a few times on the ends, to get the ends covered nicely so the headband itself isn't showing. Once you have the ribbon on it, hot glue the flower off to one side. And that's it, you're done! One fabulous headband, ready to rock!
