Punk Rock Baby Headband

Punk Rock Baby Headband from Bombshell Bling

As my few longtime followers know, I have a major problem when it comes to baby headbands.  Could NOT stop making them before my daughter had hair, which was quite a long time.  The little princess 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:

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.

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.
