Easy Lace Headbands

I made my baby girl one of these lace headbands when she was first born. I didn't measure her head, so naturally it was too big. I waited for her to grow (yes, I know I could have adjusted it...) so that it would fit her perfectly. She only wore it a couple times and then we lost it somewhere...BIG sad face. I finally got around to making her another one, and even made her some different colored ones. Since I was making more, and a friend also wanted to know how to make them I decided to just document the process so everyone can see how easy they are. I love them and so will you!

Lace Flowers
What you need:

1. 20" of lace. Grab yourself a roll of lace from your local craft store. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby when ribbon was 50% off so it was only $1/roll. score! Plus they have LOTS of fun colors to choose from.

2. Needle and thread...and maybe a sewing machine if you have one handy. If not I have made these plenty with just the needle and thread.

3. Embellishment for the center (optional)

4. a small felt circle for the back

5. A headband (I made my own out of some super skinny elastic...also from HobLob) or a clip
