Make It Monday- Floral Heart Headband

Make it Monday January 28

Floral Heart Hair bands.
Today I wanted to show you an easy party craft that is very affordable. When I was in my local Dollar Store I found a package of 6 stretchy over sized hair elastics. They  were the perfect size for dolly hair bands! For under $3 you can create 6 amazing dolly hair bands that make great party favors or party crafts. My hair bands were priced at $1.25 for six.
To create your own Floral Heart Hair bands you will need:
-1 package of stretchy oversized elastics mine were made by Just Basic 6 in a package
-scrapbook embellishment flowers or artificial flowers with the centers removed
-a heart shaped bead or button
- a needle

Step 1- Assemble the items from the list above. Try the hair band on your doll to make sure it fits with ease.
Step 2- Layer your flowers as shown in the photos below and place the bead in the center. Thread your needle with the thread and double it, knotting it at the bottom. Push your needle through the flowers and through the center of the bead.

Step 3- Position your flower petals where you want them on the hair band. Then stitch into place. Make sure to stitch through the center of the hair band and then come back through the center a few times. When you have secured your flower petals to your hair band finish by tying a knot in the thread on the hair band underside.

Step 4- Try your new hair band on your doll. Repeat with the remaining supplies, and enjoy!

Make it Monday- 18" Doll Recycled Water Bottle Headband

We are so excited to get back to our fun craft posts. Here's another fun one from Karen. I am so excited to see the crafts she thinks up for us this year. So be sure to join us every other week for Karen's Make It Monday creative posts. Enjoy !

Make it Monday Post January 14th

Today I want to show you how to make an easy hair band for your dolls from a recycled water bottle, this fun and easy craft would make a great party activity or a great party bag favour.

To create your own hair band you will need:
-A water bottle with the label removed
-1/4 inch elastic from the sewing section of your local fabric, craft or big box store, you will need 6 ½ inches of elastic for each hair band.
-fun foam stickers or embellishments for your hair band
-a push pin or hole punch
-a ruler or tape measure
* You can make up to three hair bands for your doll from one water bottle.

Step 1- Using your scissors, cut the top of the water bottle where your label once was. I used children’s safety scissors for this with ease.
Step 2- Use your ruler or your tape measure to mark all around your bottle at 1 inch as shown in the photo above.

Step 3- Use your scissors to cut down to your marked line on the plastic as shown in the photo above, then continue to cut your hair band shape from the bottle. Your finished product should look like the letter “C”

Step 4- Use your ruler to measure ½ inch in from each edge of your letter “C” then poke  a hole in the center at the ½ inch mark. This will be where you will insert the elastic. You may need to make three holes in the plastic, around the center to make it large enough to pull the elastic through. Cut 6 ½ inches of elastic.
Step 5- Feed the elastic through the hole on one side, so that the knot you will tie will be on the inside of your letter “C”, once through tie a knot. Repeat on the other side. As shown in the photo below.

Step 6- Once your hair band is formed you can decorate your hair band with stickers.
Then you can try it on your doll.

I hope you enjoyed today’s Make it Monday Craft!~ By Karen Owen aka Karen Mom of Three
