DIY Sparkled up Headband

Hey everyone, I hope your all enjoying your summer as much as we are.  We have had a few little issues that were somewhat disappointing but we are making do.  As you may have noticed in some previous blog posts that my little one has a big pink cast on her arm.

Drama Queen and her brother were jumping on the bed one evening and she fell off and landed on her arm.  Of course it was a Friday evening and instantly I knew it was broken.  You could see the arm was misshapen and out-of-place.  Great!  I thought this is just what we need the 2nd week of summer break.  Nothing was protruding out or anything but you could tell something was wrong.  This is the not the first time she has broken this arm.

 Can you believe it?

Yes this is so true.

So I have had my hands full trying to find lots of low-key activities for her to do.  Keeping her occupied and out of mischief.

I spotted these Offray elastic double strand headbands at the craft store and thought a sparkled up headband would be something we could do together.

Here is what we used to make these cute DIY sparkled up headbands…

Offray elastic headbands, sequins strands, & hot glue.

I ran a small amount of hot glue onto the headband  and pressed the sequins into the glue.  Working in small sections at a time and trying not to burn my fingers as I went along.

Lucky for me no burned fingers.

 My little one got to pick out the embellishments and I glued it all together.

When I had both strands of the headband covered with my sequins I wrapped some ribbon over the ends of the trim for a finished look.  Added a little hot glue to the edge to secure in place.

New sparkled up headbands for both of us.

I added some extra flat braided trim to my headband before adding my sequins.  You can find all different kinds of trim at the fabric store.

This was such an easy and fun little project to do with my busy little Drama Queen.  I just love  watching her make something new.


  1. These are so pretty on both of you!!! I have short hair now, but have seen people wearing pretty headbands with short hair, too. I might try this for an upcoming wedding.


  2. Those are so pretty . . . and I just got some strings of sequins as a gift! Must try this! 🙂


  3. Glitzy and cute! I adore the sweet pictures of you and and your charming daughter.


  4. What stores sell the headbands?
