A Valentine's Headband Tutorial

Make this festive headband in less than ten minutes! It's super cute for Valentine's Day. #DIY #ValentinesDay

When we unpacked everything last week, I stumbled on this little Valentine's headband I made Ani last year.

And then I found the pictures I'd taken of it and remembered how ridiculously cute one-year-old Ani was (can you ever get tired of a redheaded baby?).

This headband is still going strong a year later (and eight months packed in a cardboard box). Plus you can make one in about ten minutes.

Make this festive headband in less than ten minutes! It's super cute for Valentine's Day.

Supplies needed:

  • Felt in the color of your choice (I used red)
  • Metallic leather (or faux leather) 
  • Thin elastic
  • Scissors
  • Pin
  • Sewing machine
  • Thread the same color as your elastic


Cut out three felt hearts and one metallic heart. Set aside.

Using your baby's head as a guide, mark how long you need your elastic to be to fit snugly around their head, leaving an extra 3/4 inch on each end.

Pin the ends together with a 3/4 inch overlap. Sew securely together with your sewing machine.


Pin your hearts in an overlapping pattern onto the elastic, with the metallic heart on top.


Sew in a straight line down through the hearts onto the elastic.


Remove the pins and let your tiny child be the most festive person in the house.

  3. If only I hadn't been stupid and stopped putting headbands on Janni for a grand total of a month... so dumb!! She rips them off head faster than you can snap your fingers...
