This week is all about babies and today Sarah from Bombshell Bling is taking over the blog to share a Punk Rock baby headband tutorial. This DIY headband is super cute, easy to make and has lots of sass!
Hello, Poofy Cheeks readers! My name is Sarah and I blog over at Bombshell Bling. I am so excited to be here today sharing my punk rock baby headband tutorial with you. My little girl is now two and usually wears pigtails, but until she was about 18 months old she didn't have a bit of hair, so she was rocking a headband daily --- usually a very flashy headband! In fact, I made her so many headbands that I have to store them in a big basket! I may have a problem..... ;) Need proof? You got it:
That's not even all of them. Not even close! In case you're interested, here are the tutorial links starting at the upper lefthand corner going clockwise: Tinkerbell Costume Headband (No tutorial, sorry...that actually fell off of her late Halloween night somewhere in Disneyland Park and I just didn't have it in me to make another one.), Purple Shabby Heart Headband, Fancy Vintage Inspired Headband , Felt Chrysanthemum Headband, Easy Peasy Spring Flower Headband, Glamourous Silk Flower Headband, Elegant Felt Poinsettia Headband, Red Shabby Heart Headband, Romantic Winter Headband, Minnie Mouse Headband (I think this one is my favorite!), Glamourous Silk Flower Headband, Feathered Grinchy Headband Today I am going to share with you one of my most outrageous creations, my punk rock baby headband. I made it to coordinate with an outrageous zebra stripe and hot pink twirly skirt that my sister made for my little lady as a gift. I had totally forgotten that I had it filed away to share, and now seemed like the perfect time to roll it out! Let's get started!
Listed below are the supplies that you will need in order to make this headband. I got most of them from my favorite online shop, Fleuriste Craft Supply, other than the feather puff, which I found at Hobby Lobby.
- zebra striped foldover elastic (1 yard is plenty)
- skull applique
- two rhinestone buttons
- two black rolled fabric flowers (can be made using THIS tutorial)
- hot pink feather puff
- hot glue gun
- a small square of felt
Start by measuring your baby's head. Subtract two inches off of the measurement and cut that amount of fold over elastic. Hot glue the ends together. (Truly! You can sew them, but glue works just fine.)
Use black fabric and hot glue to roll three slightly different sized rosettes.
The feather puff is the base of your headband decoration. Glue the rosettes on top of the feather puff. Glue the rhinestone buttons on top of the rosettes.
Glue the skull appliqué on top of the rhinestones and flowers to finish off the ridiculousness.
Glue the elastic (the overlapping, glued ends) right to the back of the feathery creation. Now take a small square of felt and glue it on top of that elastic to seal the elastic firmly to the feathery creation.
Ta da! All done! Let's see it in action, shall we?
Isn't she precious?
I LOVE this headband Sarah made! I wish my little Delilah would keep them on for longer than two seconds!! If you get a chance stop by and visit Sarah’s blog Bombshell Bling where you will find these amazing S’more recipes (She is sharing one every Saturday ALL SUMMER LONG!)
