Beaded Headbands

Girl's Beaded Headbands, easy craft using Mardi Gras Beads, instructions at ActivitiesForKids.com #mardigras #headbands
Very inexpensive to make and pretty to wear. I purchased these plastic headbands at Dollar Tree.  The package contained 8 colorful headbands that were the the perfect colors to match with my stash of Mardi Gras Beads. Wear just one to match an outfit or wear a combination of headbands (purple, green and red) to celebrate Mardi Gras, St Patrick’s Day or any holiday. Headbands also make great party favors for a little girl’s birthday party.
MATERIALS:
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Plastic headbands
  • Mardi Gras Beads

INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Select a headband and bead color that match
  2. Cut a section of beads that is the same measurement as the headband.
  3. With the glue gun (adults only), add a line of glue along the outside edge of the headband.
  4. Gently lay the cut section of beads along the glue before the glue hardens.
SUGGESTIONS:

Beaded headbands make great party favors for Princess Party and Garden Party (perhaps also add a flower or two to the headband)
