You all know how much I love a holiday craft, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites I’ve ever done! I wanted to create something that Marlowe and I could wear together for the Easter holiday, and while bunny ears are fun…they just didn’t seem pretty enough. I realized I loved the idea of doing a Woodland style with the flowers to make the ears extra special! And it’s really fun to think of all the other animal ears that these headbands could turn in to for other holidays or occasions. The best part about this DIY is that it’s no-sew and can be made really simply and quickly with a hot glue gun. Score!
- Headband of your choice (I chose a braided metal for extra strength)
- 1 Hot glue gun and inserts
- 1 sheet white felt
- 1 sheet light pink felt
- A selection of faux flower stems
- Sharp scissors
Begin by cutting your shapes. I made two longer shapes with white for the ears, and then two smaller with the pink felt. Using the glue gun, affix the pink inner ears to the bottom middle of the white ears. Now carefully cut an inch long slit on either side of the pink inner ear felt. Pinch the side slits together and bind together with hot glue. Using hot glue, affix the ear to the headband by first wrapping the middle piece of felt around the headband, and then affixing the two side flaps to the top of the headband with glue. Repeat with the other ear. Cut faux flowers off of the stems, and affix to the top and front of the headband with hot glue. Wear with pride!
Headbands are having such a moment right now, and the truth is that creating cute headbands is a totally simple DIY– and something that is in everyone’s wheelhouse. I had such a blast making these, and as soon as I was done, Marlowe raced over and put one on. She couldn’t wait! I’m really excited for her to wear this on Easter– it’s going to look so adorable with her Easter dress. Wishing you a fab Easter holiday and a beautiful weekend!
