Busy hands go a long way to keeping happy kids! In this month’s Craft Lightning series, we’re all about kid craft projects to keep children occupied! The DIY fairy princess headband craft in this post serves two purposes:
- Your kids will be able to get crafty for a little bit.
- Your kids will have something to use their imaginations with for a long time.
Ergo, occupied kids.
Once you have the headband part complete, kids will generally be able to take off on their own doing the decorating part.
How to Make a DIY Fairy Princess Headband
You can use old Christmas ribbon (or any ribbon you have laying around) to make the headbands. Add in inexpensive curling ribbon and some dollar-store flowers and you’ll have a happy fairy princess.
- 3 feet of wired ribbon
- 4 foot sections of curling ribbon
- Satin ribbons
- Silk flowers
Take the wire ribbon and twist it as in the picture below so it forms a thin band.
Tie a string around where you want it to be tied off.
Let the kids go crazy picking out ribbons for their headbands. Any inexpensive ribbon will do!
At the midpoint of your bunch of ribbons, tie them around the knot in the headband. This is better done all at once, but letting the kids tie them on one by one will take more time.
Have each girl pick out three or four of her favorite flowers.
With some adult help, glue the flowers to the knot of ribbon. Your fairy princess headband is now ready for its fairy princess!
