Valentine’s Day Headbands, Two Ways

Wahooooo, we made it! We made it to February…the month of love! The month where red, white and pink with a little bit of sparkle and bling take over the world. I love a good beginning to a brand new year, but sometimes I feel like January gets just a tad bit long, so I always get really excited for February to come around with all of it’s…loveiness! So of course it seemed only fitting to hit off this lovey dovey month with some festive hair accessories perfect to wear all month and even all year.
Help me welcome back Emily from The Benson Street with her adorable Valentine’s Day Headbands…and precious little model too! Enjoy!

Hello there! It’s Emily from The Benson Street. I know it seems silly sometimes, but I love Valentine’s Day. Not in the sense that I love all the gushy romantic stuff (it isn’t bad), but I am just talking about all the cute and fun Valentine clothing, gifts and decorations. I am so excited this year, because I have a cute little baby girl to dress up!!! Which means she needs some headbands. So, I wanted to share with you Valentine’s Day Headbands, two ways today!

Let’s start with the Triple Heart Headband.

Triple Heart Headband Instructions:

Cut the skinny elastic to the desired length. I did 16 inches for my baby girl. (When you look at the elastic it gives a size measurement guide).
Glue the three hearts together. Start with a red one add a dot of glue, glue on the silver one. Add a dot of glue on the tip of the silver heart and glue the second red heart to it.
Glue two felt circles together.
Add a thin line of hot glue and glue the elastic to the line. Use a pencil to stick the elastic into the glue, to avoid burns.
Add glue all over the two circles with the elastic glued on.
Glue the hearts to the felt circles. Allow to dry before wearing.

I love how this one turned out. It is a little funky, a little glam and a whole lot of cute. It can even be worn after Valentine’s Day.

Pink Bow Heart Headband Instructions:

Cut one long piece of elastic for the headband according to the size in the size chart in the description for the elastic (I did mine 16 inches).
Cut one piece of elastic at 5 1/2 inches, one at 4 1/2 inches and one at 2 inches to make the bow.
For the 5 1/2 inch and 4 1/2 inch pieces fold one edge over and add a dab of glue. Fold the other edge over into the glue to form a loop. Repeat for the other piece.
Glue together the edges of the headband elastic.
Place the bigger loop underneath the smaller loop and place on top of the glued seam of the headband. Wrap the 2 inch piece of elastic around the loops and headband and glue together in the back.
Add a dab of glue to the front middle of the bow and glue on the resin heart. Allow to dry before wearing.

This one is so sweet. I love the bow and the heart resin. The pink makes the white pop!

    Aww, I love both headbands, Emily! They are each so simple, yet so adorable, and the cost of materials is negligible… yaaay!
