Good Morning! Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog! My name is Keri Lee Sereika and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon this month. I thought I would share with you a fun and easy project today that will make any little girl (or big girl for that matter) super happy! Who wouldn't want to make this Fifteen Minute DIY Tulle & Ribbon Button Embellished Headband Bow???

Using a few simple and inexpensive items let's take this simple dollar store headband from blah to FABULOUS! I have included step by step photos and instructions. Remember, while this is done to match my daughters Autumn Forest Nymph Tutu that I made for her, you can use ANY COLORS you like...why not make a rainbow of them!?? Let's begin by gathering our supplies, shall we?

You will need:

Fold tulle in half, then in half again, then in half once more making eight layers of tulle.
Tie center with hemp twine.

Place on headband and tie onto headband using short length of Cream Seam binding.
Hot glue underside to headband to hold securely.
