Easter Egg Ribbon Hairband

My girls love wearing hairbands!

When their favorite rosette hairband fell apart, I recycled it into a felt flower {found here}.  Now they are always coming up with new hairband ideas!  This time we decided that I should try an Easter Egg.  My first idea {which involved hot gluing little beads onto a felt egg} was a complete flop, so I tried using ribbons - they worked great!

It was super easy.
I traced an egg shape onto some felt with an egg shaped cookie cutter.
Then I hot glued a variety of Easter colored ribbons onto the felt egg.
This is what it looked like from the front.


And here it is from the back.


Then I folded and hot glued the ribbons onto the back of the egg - folding the ribbons around at different angles according to the shape of the egg.


Finally, I hot glued the ribbon egg onto a plain hairband and then hot glued a smaller egg shape onto the bottom to help provide support.


Here is the finished product!


I made one for both of my little Easter Bunnies.
Hippity Hop!
