Elastic Headband with Flower

Quick crafts are my favorite, especially in the summer!  So, when my friends Carolina & Angie asked me to join in a summer round of Craft Lightening, I was all in.  These elastic headbands are simple to make and can be put together in less than 15 minutes.  I promise!

ps- I made a bunch of flowers and the girls can mix and match them for any outfit. (Actually, Lady A made all of the flowers. That’s right this 15 minute craft is perfect for the creative kids in your world.)

  1. I think you could even do cute little bow ties with elastic bands. It wouldn’t be that hard, and you could make it a project for both your little girls and your little boys: girls make the headbands, boys make the ties!
