For me, summer is such a fun time of year to create! I love making clothes for girls to wear at the parades we attend. This week my daughter and I made a fun Patriotic Headband this week for a fun event she has at school (year-round school).
I am all about accessories and luckily my little princess is, too; so with some inspiration from these hats, I made some DIY Patriotic Headbands adorned with bright and glittery embellishments.
- White Glitter Paper
- Blue Glitter Tape
- Star Embellishment
- Silver curly ribbon
- Craft Knife
Step #1: Create a cylinder using a 3” x 8” strip of the corrugated glitter white cardstock. Staple into place.Step #2: In order for the cylinder to hold its shape I cut the bottom of a plastic cup and slid it down inside. This also made it simple to glue the top onto the hat.
Step #3: Cut a 3” circle to create to base of the hat. Cut 4 slits in the base; put the slits where the cylinder will sit on the base to create the hat.
Step #4 & #5: Using the adhesive, tape two strips of cardstock on the bottom of the base and slide through two slits opposite each other. Apply tape on the outside of the strips that are now on the top of the base. You will glue these strips to the inside of the cylinder to create the hat.
Step #6: Cut a 2.5” circle to create the top of the hat. Tape it on the plastic cup.
Step #7: Cut an 8” strip of blue glitter tape and adhere it around the hat.
Step #8: Attached a red Pebbles Star Embellishment
Step #9: Attach the Silver Curly Bow to the top of the hat for an extra festive look.
Step #10: Thread the headband through the two empty slits at the bottom of the base.
Now my little one has a darling patriotic firecracker accessory for the 4th of July. What a fun little craft!
