4th of July Headband: Sparkler

With two little girls, I like to take any excuse I can to create clothing for them. Most often these creations revolve around a holiday. I have had many ideas swirling around in my head with the upcoming 4th. This weekend I finished a headband for Peachy. Truth be told, she isn't real sure about it. No problem, because if she doesn't want to wear it on Wednesday, I will!!
The headband started with a singed satin flower. You can Google it and will find many great tutorials. Essentially, you cut concentric shapes out of satin, singe the shapes with a candle or other heat source, assemble the shapes from largest to smallest, and away you go.
After completing the flower, I added some bling. The center is a button from Hobby Lobby with the shank cut off.
Then using a felt circle I attached the flower to a headband with a glue gun. I found a three pack of headbands in red, white, and blue at Forever 21 recently for $2.50. Score!
I hope to share Cream's headband with you tomorrow and the girls' complete outfits on Wednesday, so stay tuned for more patriotic goodness. I am linking to these wonderful parties this week.
