DIY Barbie´s Headbands

About: I am an Industrial Designer, who obviously loves to create. Now that I am a mom, most of my creations are inspired by my daughers. I believe that if more parents were making stuff with their kids, the world ...

Everyone knows Barbie will never have enough fashion accessories. My daughter's Barbies love having new stuff.

It's ridiculous how expensive those tiny plastic things are. So today I'll teach you how you can have HUNDREDS of headbands for less than a dollar.

This is the perfect activity for a Barbie themed party, the girls can make and decorate their doll's headbands.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

I'm sure you've seen this spring or slinky. Mabe you have some already ruined (those are perfect for this craft) I bought 8 for one dollar at the dollar store in the party section.

Nail polish

Embellishments (beads, ribbons, buttons, rhinestones)


Step 2: ​ Cut.

With your scissors cut a piece of the spring. It should be almost a complete circle.

Step 3: ​ Paint

If you want to have lots of different colours from the same slinky, just paint it with nail polish.

Step 4: ​ Decorate

With the hot glue add the beads, ribbons, rhinestones...

I had a slinky with the shape of a star. That one looks cute as headband too, looks like a crown.

Do you like the store? I made it too, I'll be posting that instructable soon! Follow me so you don't miss it.
