DIY Dollar Headband

Have you seen the adorable fabric Valentine hearts at Dollar Tree?  After Rhonda posted about them here, I had to have a few!  These are so well made and a total steal at six per pack for $1.  They can be used in many ways, and here are two quick ideas that would make for fun gifts or just for you to wear on Valentine’s day.

Project estimate:

  • Puffy hearts, $1 for 6
  • Headband, on hand or $1
  • Hair clip, on hand or $1
  • Craft feathers, on hand or $1
  • Felt, on hand
  • Glue gun, on hand

Total:  $1 and up


To make the hair clip,glue feathers to the back of the heart.  Place a small piece of felt behind the clip, and glue the heart onto it.

For the headband, simply hot glue the hearts in alternating colors onto the headband.  For a more finished look, glue a strip of felt behind the hearts.

I’ve already had people ask me where I bought my cute headband!  This is such a quick, easy project that you can easily make in under 10 minutes.  I think they’d make cute Valentine gifts, but make sure to save at least one for yourself to wear on the 14th!
