Mickey Mouse headband

I feel like I’ve been away forever! My laptop bit the dust but I’m back.

Today’s post is a tutorial I did for another blog- iBetterAccessorize

When my oldest daughter was younger, I always made cute little bows to match her outfits; she had tons of hair accessories with ribbons, feathers & flowers. She’s 17 now but I have a 3 year old daughter for whom to make hair accessories! My little Taryn loves pinks & purples. Since she tends to wear those colors often, I decided to make a purple headband for her to wear with one of her favorite characters- Mickey Mouse!

1. Glue feather to felt circle: Start with the felt circle and glue the back of the feather to edge of felt circle as shown.
2. Glue Mickey to flower: Glue the rhinestone Mickey Mouse to the center of the pinwheel flower.
3. Glue flower to feather: Now you need to decide at which angle you want your feather in comparison to the rhinestone Mickey Mouse. A few ways that would look cute are- parallel to the Mickey Mouse rhinestone, perpendicular to the Mickey Mouse or at a 45 degree angle to the Mickey Mouse rhinestone. I chose to attach mine at a 45 degree angle. And no, I didn’t pull out a ruler, I just eyeballed it.
4. Glue flower and feather to headband: Place flower- feather assembly on the headband to determine placement. Once you are satisfied with the location, flip the flower-feather assembly over and glue in place.
