Real life conversation with my husband Derek after hearing the “It’s a Girl” announcement:
Derek: “We’re not gonna put one of those things on her are we?”
Me: “What things?”
Derek: “Those strings with the flowers.”
Me: “A headband?”
Me: “Oh yes we are!”
What’s cuter than a bald baby or one with a full head of a hair with a cute headband on top? Since they can’t wear necklaces or bracelets, headbands are the perfect way to accessorize your mini me.
After picking up this scalloped picture frame with a 11×14 opening on clearance at Michaels for $8, I got to work making a headband display.
I removed the glass and wrapped the backer in fabric with three pieces of vertically hung ribbon. I sewed on a few buttons to hold the ribbons in place. When she’s older, I can slip in those harder plastic headbands inside within each “loop” that I created.
Derek added hooks at the bottom to hang to longer headbands. I can clip the coordinating clips onto the vertical ribbons.
We hung it up under the floating shelves in her room. Now we can easily coordinate a perfect outfit! In trying to get this shot, I captured the cutest little photo bomb, don’t you think? :)
