DIY Baby Lace Headband Tutorial

Mike hates baby headbands. He takes them off every time I put one on Molly girl. He always feels like they are digging into her head or too tight {and a few of them have been, but don’t tell him I said that:)}. So, I decided to make my own that wouldn’t be tight on her head and it turned out adorable. It cost less than $1 and can be changed to match any outfit!

I used to always have a little bow clip in when she had all that hair, but haven’t been able to use them lately. I can now clip them on the lace headband to match her cute little outfits;)

I’m not into the huge sparkly bows and feathers for everyday wear {they are cute for pictures!} so this is the perfect Molly headwear.  Now I’m off to make myself one too! This girl is in for lots of mommy-daughter matching, whether she likes it or not:)
