Velvet Ribbon Head Bands

Velvet Ribbon Head Bands

With only 2 lengths of velvet ribbon with silicone swirl you can make at least 2 gorgeous flower headbands that any little girl will adore.

You will need: 1/2m of peach velvet ribbon and 3 pieces (about 10cm each) of Deep Pink, some elastic and 2 angel in heart charms and a little tulle if you want.

Just check my Echo Park Springtime blog post for how to make the ribbon flowers. Instead of a brad I used a little button in the centre of each flower (it hides any messes, LOL!) and you sew them directly on the velvelt ribbon.

I added a little angel in heart charm hearts on both ends (sew slightly under the flower to hide the loop). If you want to you can gather up a little tulle and sew it under the ribbon.

Before you sew the ribbon ends together grab a child of your choice (preferably a girl!) and measure around her head.

You should connect the 2 ends with a little piece of elastic to help it sit comfortably.

Already done! Now sit back and enjoy your little princess.

Have a great day
