Quick & Easy Hair Bow Embellishment

Quick & Easy Hair Bow Embellishment

My daughter and I are going to an Enchanted Forest themed baby shower this weekend, and I wanted to make an embellished headband for her that fits the theme!

The hair bow featured is set on a nude nylon headband but can also be set on an alligator clip.

Here is the supply list I used to make my embellished hair bow:

  • Savannah Natural hair bow
  • Wooden shapes from Dollar Tree (one mushroom + two leaves)
  • Anita’s all-purpose acrylic paint in the color Terra Cotta
  • Apple Barrel matte paint in the color Cardinal Crimson
  • Folk Art chalk paint in the color Sheepskin
  • Waverly chalk paint in the color Moss (not displayed in photo above)
  • Paint brushes
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue stick

First, I mixed Terra Cotta, Cardinal Crimson and Sheepskin paint together until I got the color I liked for the mushroom top.

I painted the top of the mushroom, making sure to get front and back, inside the holes and along the edges. 

Next, I figured out where I wanted to place the leaves and mushroom. I decided I wanted to put a leaf on either side and the mushroom in the center.

While the top of the mushroom was drying, I painted the leaves in the color Moss.

I set the leaves aside to dry, and painted the stem of the mushroom in the color Sheepskin. 

After all of my embellishments were completely dry, I hot glued them in place. 

Here is the finished product.

And here is the headband on my daughter!

I would love to hear if you’ve tried this out in the comments below!
