Flower Girl Headband (Green Tara)

Seriously, you can make a gorgeous headband that would retail for about $25 in 15 minutes... for less than half the price! This one was actually inspired by a flower girl headband my daughter saw in a boutique - with a whopping $38 price tag. No way was I paying that much for a 3-year-old's play thing, since she is not in a wedding.

All I did was buy a plain faux leather headband (at my local dollar store) and hot glued some Green Tara lace trim (glue in the very centre only of the lace). I then added the twisted organza pearl trim with fabric glue (over-top the hot glued lace just in case of future yellowing). Then I added some GORGEOUS silk flowers with Swarovski crystals (3 cream and 3 pink) with fabric glue in an off-centre cluster. My daughter actually chose the pretty flowers and I coordinated the headband and trims to match. We make a pretty good crafting pair (only 34 years difference in age :) I still won't let her wear it out of the house yet though, LOL.
