Flower Crown DIY for Toddlers


Dahlia has a lot of hair and I've been using headbands and hairclips to hold her hair but lately she doesn't keep the headbands on! Disappointed because I love putting them on her I decided to make her a little flower crown which is in between a headband and a big hairclip. The reason this works is because it doesn't wrap around her entire head just partially on top.....which makes her happy and gets me excited!

Here a quick tutorial on how I made it:
Things needed:
Hairclips (already wrapped in ribbon)
Elastic band (but can use a ribbon)
Flowers
Glue
Felt

First I cut the elastic band (about 4") just enough to fit on top of her head.
Then I burned the edges so the thread doesn't run

Next I unwrapped the end of the hairclip, hot glued one end of the elastic band, then wrapped the hairclip ribbon back on and hot glued the other side. 

Repeat for the other end of the elastic band.

Unfortunately I didn't take a picture of this but once both ends are attached to hairclips, then you can hot glue the flowers onto the elastic band (right side up).

Final step once the flowers are glued on is to turn the whole thing upside down, cut a piece of felt to use as backing (I did 3/4" x 3") and glued that piece to the back side of the elastic band.

The flower crown is done after just a few steps!
