Hi there Crafting Chicks followers! This is Ali from Dream Crafter back again to share another artsy fartsy idea. I’m sure you have seen these floral crowns floating around Pinterest and I can’t get enough of them! (Sigh…if only I had  girl.) But I do love them for adults too. Not only are these floral crowns really cute, they are also REALLY easy to make (my favorite aspect of any craft.) Here’s what you’ll need to make these festive little beauties: 1. A whole bunch of fake flowers. (I would suggest getting some quality ones like at Michaels or Hobby Lobby.) I had an entire box full of fake flowers in my grandma’s basement just waiting to be used. Score! 2. Fabric Scissors 3. Neutral colored felt 4. Floral wire 5. Needle nose pliers 6. Wire cutters 7. Regular craft scissors 8. Hot glue gun and glue 9.

Washi Tape Headbands

washi-tale-headband

This is the most simple project….and it’s actually an idea that Q my 5 year-old came up with.  She is the best and so creative.  She did this one day and I thought, “what a great idea that is!”  She even staged a lot of this shoot which  I think is so awesome.  I love when she joins me in my shenanigans.  This is a fun project you can use for any age of girl. SUPPLIES:  All you need is blank headbands.  They have a great supply over at Hairbow Supplies Etc.  The only other thing is washi tape.  Easy enough. HAVE I TOLD YOU I LOVE WASHI TAPE!!!!  I do…that’s all.   You can use any type of washi tape for this projects.  I noticed that when Q and I were making these, that patterned tapes look different when they are on the headband.  Ones I thought would be cute, didn’t necessarily look cute and visa versa.  So try out [Read More...]

Headband of the Easiest Kind!

HEADBAND-THUMB

Ok, so i’m usually long-winded here and my goal today is to make it short and sweet for your sake ;). I love these headbands so much!  I’ve always loved the classic look of a simple striped bow. Here’s my quick version.  If you want darling ribbon to work with, you can go to HairBowSuppliesEtc. 1.  Start with a foot and a half of ribbon and fold like so (with snake tongues cute out of each end).  Hot glue ribbon in the middle of the bow where everything comes together and on all layers. 2.  Wrap and glue one piece around the center. Done!!! 3. Glue along the metal headband and attach bow. 4.  Use one last piece of ribbon to glue onto the bottom side of the ribbon and over underside of the headband. DONE.  Enjoy. Pin It
