5 Valentine's Day Crafts - Project #1

Today starts a series of 5 posts featuring simple Valentine's Day crafts.
Check back often to see them all.

#1 - Easy Heart Headband

Make one of these for all the little girls in your life - or yourself!
These are so easy that your kids could make them for themselves.


Pink & Red Felt
Elastic Headband
Fabric Glue

Step 1:
Cut a heart out of felt - I used zig zag scissors.

Step 2:
Cut out of felt a small square to sit on top of the heart - I chose red to go on the pink heart. Using fabric glue, glue it onto the heart.

Step 3:
Glue a button to the center.

Step 4:
Attach the heart to the headband.
Turn the heart over to the "wrong" side.
Put a line of glue horizontal across the heart in the center.

Look on your headband for the seam where the ends were put together.
Lay the headband down on the glue with the seam touching the glue.

Step 5:
Cover up your glue.
Cut another small square or rectangle from your red or pink felt that will cover up the headband where it is glued.
Cover this piece completely with glue, edge to edge.
Press the glued side down over the headband (headband should be in the middle).
Using your fingers, press down so that the piece of felt has a strong bond.

Let these dry 24 hours before wearing.

Enjoy! The possibilities are endless!
