Bow Tie Headband Tutorial

Bow Tie Headband Tutorial
There are few things as cute as a little boy in a bow tie. Bow ties are even in style for men too. They can look really good! But what happens when you find a cute, cheap bow tie and you have no little boy to put it on? You make a headband of course!
To say this is a full tutorial would be a total lie because it is so dang easy, but I will show/tell you how I turned a bow tie into a headband for my little girl.
You need…
*bow tie (mine was in the dollar section of Target)
*sewing machine
Put the bow tie around the head you want it to fit on. Measure how much bigger you need to make it so that it goes around the head. Cut the elastic to the size you need to fit around the rest of the head.
Sew elastic to the ends of your bow tie to make a circle headband.
Stick it on your kid’s head and you are done! Isn’t that the easiest thing you have ever done? I think it is just the right size of bow to make a statement without it being too huge too!

My son wore this bowtie for Easter and now I wish I had made a matching headband for my daughter! How cute would that be? Next year... next year.
