Kanzashi Flower Headband!

Is there anything grandmas won't do?  Maybe ... but when I 
see something that I think Phoebe would like ... or enjoy doing ... I'm all over it!

When I saw the Kanzashi flower templates on several Pinterest posts, I knew that was for me!  I've been making lots of flowers for some little decorating projects. Maybe you saw them on my Poppies post!  I also realized they would make adorable pins and embellishments for Phoebe's clothes ... and would make cute headbands.  As you can see, Miss Phoebe has plenty of hair and of all the ways she wears it ... she seems to prefer headbands ... if they really hold back her hair. Fortunately, this one did!



The headbands come in a variety of colors from JoAnn Fabrics and they just cost one dollar ... I used hot glue to add a couple "gems" and one of our patriotic flowers.  I'm pretty sure she'll be asking for more of these ... and grandma will accommodate!  I made pins out of some other flowers with the little pin backs that you can get at craft stores.  
They need to be sewn on, but that is an easy task.

I'll be sharing this with a few parties this week.  Take a look!
