Halloween Girl’s Headband with Bottle Cap Spider


We are in full Halloween mode right now.  That means that if my little girl wants to wear her Halloween shirt, she can.  I thought that it would be fun to make her a couple of cute headbands for Halloween.  I made them elastic because those seem to try on her head much better.  Plus they are super easy to make!

This is what I used to make the headbands.
I took a piece of ribbon and measure it to the back of her ears (it was about 12 inches). I used white felt, glue gun and ric rac and bottle cap for the spider and some elastic.

I first glued the ribbon onto the felt.  The felt helps to keep the headband from moving so much.

Then I made the cute little spider.

I measure the elastic from the back of her ears and then cut it about a 1/2-1 inch shorter.  Then I sewed the elastic onto the ribbon.

And that's it.  Isn't it so cute??  I love it and so does she :).

I also made her a cute little button one too.  I just glued some buttons onto the ribbon, super easy.
