Yesterday, after seven weeks of people thinking my baby is a boy (I hate the color pink and rarely/almost never dress her in it), I decided to come up with a soution: the headband.
Yes, I realize that this may seem like an obvious solution, but I had a very difficult time with it, because I couldn’t find any headbands that I actually liked (Is it just me or are most headbands super frilly and bigger than the baby’s face?) and the ones I did seemed like they would be too tight and squish Fern’s little head. In order to remedy this problem, I decided to make one myself.
The only problem? I don’t know how to sew and I’m not terribly crafty. I like the idea of crafting, as you know if you follow me on Pinterest, but how many of those pinned DIY projects have I actually completed? Barely any.
BUT, after a bit of brainstorming, I came up with this little DIY baby headband – perfect for the lazy crafter/busy mama like myself since it only required buying one item for $2.50 and it took all of 30 seconds.
1. Buy a pair of tights – I bought these footless tights in the girls section at Target (you can find them here).
2. Cut the waistband off of the tights – cut under the waist seam.
3. Wrap it around baby’s head – not too tight – you don’t want to squish baby’s head!
4. Tie in a double knot – arrange it so it looks like a bow.
You can also use the rest of the tights to make more headbands. Just cut the tights into long strips and tie around baby’s head. Easy peasy. I told you it would only take 30 seconds!
