If you are lucky enough to have a little girl with wild crazy hair, then you will know that you can never have enough headbands to tame unruly manes. With Easter round the corner, here is a really simple craft project to make a really cute DIY Easter headband for your little princess.
As part of the Bostik blogger team, each month we get sent a box full of crafty loveliness to inspire us on a craft project. This month the theme was Easter, and the box contained lots of pastel coloured craft materials, gemstones, ribbons and of course eggs. I immediately wanted to make a basket or Easter bag for the kids but I was drawn to this cute little nest. I have made ribbon headbands before, adorned with various objects, so this little nest inspired this idea of a DIY Easter headband.
This project is super simple and quick, so is suitable for even a novice crafter. It’s also simple enough for a child, say 8 and upwards to do on their own. Using the Bostik Glue Dots makes it also really quick and mess free. The result is a really cute little Easter themed headband and you need very little in the way of time to make it.

How to Make This Cute DIY Easter Headband
What You Need
- Plastic headband. You can get these from a haberdashery shop or use one you already have. Using the Bostik glue dots means you can remove the ribbon and Easter embellishments at a later stage if you wish to.
- Bostik Glue Dots
- Easter themed ribbon, or ribbon in a pastel shade
- Easter decoration. I used a cute little nest, with some little polystyrene eggs and some silver and gold beads. You could use what you like really though: eggs; little chicks; little pom pom bunnies or foam shapes.
How You Make Your DIY Easter Headband
- First make your Easter decoration for the headband. I glued 3 little polystyrene eggs into this cute little nest. When they were dry I added a few big dollops of glue in between the eggs, and added lots of little silver and gold beads.
- Then place a Bostik glue dot on one end of your headband to attach the end of your ribbon. I then used about 10 glue dots placed around the headband before I started winding my ribbon to help secure it in place.
- Starting at the end, carefully but tightly wind your ribbon around the headband making sure you are covering all of the plastic underneath.
- When you reach the other end of the headband cut the excess ribbon off, and use a final glue dot to secure the end of the ribbon.
- Add your Easter decoration by glueing it in place. In my opinion I think these sorts of headband embellishments look better slightly off centre, but obviously it’s up to you where you place it.
- I then made a little bow from my left over ribbon, and glued that to one side of my little Easter nest.
- Wait for it all to dry, and that’s it, ready to wear!
