I got many lovely and cute headbands to Emma from our family since she was in my belly =D. The cutest headbands ever, with its big  and colorful bows. So much art and creativity on each one but my baby girl couldn’t use them much because the elastic always annoyed her, even now.

The thing is that they were so cute and I loved them so much that I couldn’t think of give them away so I come up with the idea of to reuse them making this kind of headbands made with plastic so it wouldn’t be elastic anymore. And it worked!!!

I love how they turned out. I made some of them because Emma has so many LOL. The rest is on my to do list.

It is super easy to make and you only need some plastic headbands {or hair clips} and hot glue gun or thread and needle =D.

I just cut off the elastic strip from the bow and used it to wrap it around the plastic while stretching it tightly.

When I got to the end, I glued it with a bit of hot glue. Cuando llegué al final, pegué el extremo de la elástica con silicón.

And the headband was ready. Now the bow. Y así la diadema quedo lista. Ahora el lazo.

I decided first where I wanted the bow to be and marked it. Then I added a bit of hot glue in the mark and put the bow in place. Decidí primero donde quería que quedara el lazo y lo marqué. Luego puse un punto de silicón en la marca y puse el lazo en el lugar.

Then I reinforce the bow with more hot glue in a few more spots. Después reforcé el lazo con más puntos de silicon en otros puntos bajo de él.

Here you go… It’s done! Allí lo tienen… Está listo!

Here another example, and it was almost the same, cut the elastic, wrap the plastic headband but at the end I made some stitches. Then marked the place for the bow, glued it and tadaaaaa!!! Aquí dejé otro ejemplo y era casi lo mismo, corté la elástica, forré la diadema pero al final le puse unos puntos con la aguja e hilo. Luego marqué  el lugar del lazo y lo pegué con silicón, tadaaaa!!!!

Look how cute Emma looks with another one I made! Miren lo linda que se ve Emma con otra diadema que hice!

What do you think?  Have you made headbands like these? How else would you make it?

    I thought about how to reuse my baby headbands and your post showed me exactly how to after all this time. I bought a hot glue gun and glued away. I made so many new headbands and clips I couldn’t count how many.

    Those are adorable and such a clever idea! My little Molly also always hated the elastic headbands.

    These are so cute! I really like the pink and brown headband. I used to dress my daughter in pink and brown a lot when she was a baby.
