I'm a paint-aholic, throw pillow aficionado, and twin mommy updating our home one project at a time. Follow along as I use creativity, a whole lot of Pinterest and home décor blogger inspiration and some savvy shopping skills to make our house in the heights a home (with some technical help from my husband, of course)!
After last week's post about the baby shower baskets that I made in anticipation of the arrival of my triplet nieces and nephew, a few of you emailed me to ask about the headbands I used to decorate the girls' baskets.
So in case you were wondering, I didmake the headbands, and they were so simple (and cheap)!!
I started out by ordering shabby flowers and elastic from Pick Your Plum, which cost a total of $9 for a total of 30 flowers in 15 different colors and 5 colors of elastic. After setting my materials out on the table, I came up with 6 different color combinations that I liked.
I used Style Me Classy's measurement guide for determining the length of each headband, and added half an inch to each length of elastic to account for overlap when I hot glued the ends of the elastic together to make a circle.
Then I used the hot glue gun to glue the flowers into clusters, based upon the color combinations that I had already selected. Once each cluster was securely fastened, I used the hot glue to attach each cluster of flowers to the top of the corresponding elastic band.
And that was it! I made 6 matching sets of hand bands, all in the colors of outfits that I can imagine the girls wearing. Whether they are wearing matching outfits or not, they can coordinate and look fab with cute accessories!
Which is your favorite? I can't choose between the brown/blue or the yellow/gray! Ooh, and I like the black, white and pink as well...it reminds me of something a ballerina would wear.
