Make Something | Yarn Wrapped Headbands.
Being the mother of a nearly 10 year old, very crafty girl means I frequently hear the words, "Mommy, can I make something?" While I love creating with Abby it can be difficult finding crafts for her skill level. That's where the idea for the new feature "Make Something" was born. Every so often I will share a favorite (simple) craft that you can do with the little crafty people in your life. First up: yarn wrapped headbands.
A dear friend gifted Audrey a couple of these sweet headbands for her birthday. I knew immediately they would be a fun project for me and Abby to tackle together.
On a recent trip to the craft store we bought plastic headbands and yarn. You'll also need a hot glue gun and scissors for this project.
Step 1: Begin by taking the end of your yarn and glueing it to the very tip of the headband.
Step 2: Wrap the yarn around, covering the plastic end completely.
Step 3: Next, add an inch of glue to the surface of the headband and wrap more yarn.
Continue wrapping the yarn all the way around the headband (no gluing necessary) until you get to the other end and repeat steps 1-3 in reverse order. Trim the end of the yarn.
Abby's always had a difficult time keeping headbands in her fine hair. I'm happy to report these yarn wrapped babies stay in place all day! Plus, they don't give her a headache like the kind with the little plastic comb.
