(Or even a flower girl headband -- wouldn't they be absolutely darling!)
Happy May Day!
I know the origin of the holiday has changed a number of times, but I love the idea of celebrating Spring. I remember in Elementary school learning Maypole dances and even then I just loved the idea of girls in Spring dresses dancing, throwing flowers and all-around celebrating Spring
(I think it was all the Anne of Green Gables I read as a girl.)
So, we had to celebrate May Day in style. With two little girls that love to dress up....I thought May Day Flower Headbands were just the ticket.
To make the headbands I used a 1 1/2 inch grosgrain ribbon for each headband and then made all sorts of felt flowers and hot glued them on. I did fringed flowers, rolled flowers but I think my favorites were the ones I made with the pom pom middles.
Here's how I made the pom pom middle ones..
Let me forewarn you here.....these are the blurriest pictures on earth. Sorry in advance. But the steps are at least accurate (there's a reason for using blurry pictures---um---sometimes.)
And you are done!
Any fun May Day plans?
We are planning a picnic (please let our weather cooperate)
and then a few May Day baskets (i.e. plates of cookies) so we can for sure
celebrate the doorbell ditching part of it!
It's the only way the boys are going to participate at all....
