Summer Fun: Yarn Headband


With Summer vacation just a few weeks away L & B is introducing a yarn project series just for kids.  I am always looking for fun easy crafts for my little ones to get their creativity flowing. This one fits into the quick, fun, easy, and cute category.


This is all you need to get started:  Go to your local Dollar Store and purchase a wide headband and your favorite color silk flower.  Coordinate your flower to match your yarn, we used a budget friendly yarn we carry at our brick & mortar store called “Coolspun Cotton”.


Using hot glue attach one end of the yarn to the tip end of the headband and start wrapping.  Wrap until the headband is completely covered and then glue on your silk flower.  Your project is complete and your little one will be excited to wear her new creation all summer long.


This is also a fun project for sleepovers or birthday parties.  Check back with us in the weeks to come for other yarn projects just for kids! -B

    I love this idea, B! This is so perfect. Do you still have any of this colorway left? I looked today and didn’t find it. That doesn’t mean it isn’t there though ;)

    How do you finish the ends? Do you weave in the end of the yarn, or just cut and glue? Such a cute idea!

    Just glue one end to the tip end of the head band to start. I glued it on the inside. Then at the other end do the same thing to finish. Glad you like it!!
