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.

And the headband was ready. Now the bow.

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.

Then I reinforce the bow with more hot glue in a few more spots.

Here you go… It’s done!

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!!!
