Baby Girl Headband Tutorial

My granddaughter had her 1st birthday in February. We made her Thank You gifts to the family and had lots of left over craft supplies so I decided to make her a headband. Below is a photo of her magnet.

Following are the supplies I used:

1. pink tulle 6" wide by 25" long - (I folded it in half and had to trim it some more cause it was too big.

2. 16 1/2" elastic band
3. Pearls and ribbon roses

4. Needle and thread
5. Hot glue gun and glue stick
6. Scissors


1.  I folded the tulle in half then did a gather stitch at the fold.


2.  I sewed the two ends together.

3. Next I sewed the two ends of the elastic ribbon together.

4. Then I sewed the tulle flower onto the sewn side of the elastic ribbon.

5. Next is the fun part, decorating the middle of the tulle flower with pearls and ribbon roses.
I used a hot glue gun for this part and here's the result.

In the meantime I'm waiting for my granddaughter so I can take photos of her with the headband I just made. So after church we come home and I try to get some photos of her. She's not having it but it's so much fun chasing her around the house trying to get some quick shots of her!

 She ran into the hallway where the lighting is not too good.

 In this photo I think she was actually trying to strike a pose!

 I Love this shot of her :)

I was also able to get a top shot of her with her brand new headband.
First headband grandma ever made and more to come
because her mommy plans to make some too!

Rose and Heart Themed Birthday Party Decorations For One Year Old Girl

We just celebrated my granddaughter's 1st Birthday on Saturday. This is a One I made for her using silk flower roses. It was used along with a banner of hearts connected together with twin and each heart had a letter that spelled Happy Birthday. I used twine to make the letters and accented each letter with a ribbon rose and a pearl. My granddaughter's name is Rosalee so my daughter wanted to use roses and hearts and have a shabby chic kind of theme.

I used Pinterest to store ideas for Rosalee's birthday party and I had my heart set on this Rose covered 1 from Kara's Party Ideas

Rose One (1)

Below is a close up of one of the hearts we used for her Happy Birthday banner. We used twine for the letters and accented each letter with a silk ribbon rose and a pearl. All the hearts were strung together with twine. It looked absolutely beautiful but we were all so busy running around we didn't take photos of it hanging!
