Isn't she a doll?! I saw this adorable headband (below, sorry it's hard to see, it's the only pic I could find because cute Quinn is always behind the camera!)on my friend Quinn a few months ago and thought, I bet I could make one of those!
I went on my quest and found this dandy three pack of headbands at the Dollar Tree. I am good with 33 cents!!
Next, I headed over to Hobby Lobby and found these little beauties for $1.99! I did a little dance in the aisle. I love the colors and the little wings are made out of stiff feathers which gives them a cool texture.
You could easily glue the butterflies right to the headband, but I wanted to be able to switch out colors. The butterflies came with a wire sticking out of them, so I just secured the wire in the butterfly better with some glue and wired it right on to the headband.
I think I might go get some of those permanent stick black velcro dots and attach the butterflies with those so they are easier to change out.
Oh, and nothing like wearing a bug on your head for Earth Day!;)
