DIY ♛ Princess Headbands

When I was little I was a huuuge lover of playing dress up. After forcing my brothers to don capes and armor, I’d dress up in lingerie slips, glittery flats and sparkly headbands and begin Act I of the play Rescue Sonia from the Evil Wizard. Now that I’m “all grown-up” (yeah, right…) I don’t think I stand a chance in getting my brothers to dress up as knights in shining armor, but that doesn’t mean I can’t dress up like a princess from time to time.

I already own a vintage slip (see here) and glittery heels, so all that was left on my “princess checklist” was the sparkly headband. However, instead of spending a fortune on just one twinkly headpiece, I decided this was a perfect opportunity for a DIY! So, without further ado, I bring you an easy-as-pie step-by-step guide to making your own princess headband!

You will need: a needle & thread, hot glue gun, scissors, elastic trimming, sparkly jewels!

1. Using the elastic trim (I chose a black velvet for this particular headband), measure the circumference of your head, snip snip with the scissors and then stitch the two ends together.

2. Once you’ve secured the two ends together, hot glue the sparkly ornament of your choosing onto the elastic and let dry. (**note: I like to glue the sparkly piece over the seam of the headband so that it doesn’t show)

3. Place the crown on your head and begin your reign as princess!

    These are adorable and they look like something simple enough that maybe even I could pull it off! I like the ones with the flowers. Reminds me of the Scott McKenzie song ;-)
