I Like Big Buttons! Adjustable Elastic Headband With Interchangeable Shabby Flowers

Today, I am making a Adjustable Elastic Headband with Interchangeable Shabby Flowers.  It is super easy to do and adorable on both babies and big 😉 kids alike.

Supplies for Adjustable Headband:

  • 1 set of headband ring and slider
  • 24″ length of 5/8″ Elastic for headbands
  • Glue of your choice: Fabric Tac or Hot Glue
  • Lighter or Chef’s Torch

Supplies for Shabby Flower Embellishment:

  • 2″ Shabby Flowers of your choosing
  • 1/2″ x 1″ square of Coordinating Felt
  • 1 1/2″ Circles of Coordinating Felt
  • Glue of your choice: Fabric Tac or Hot Glue
  • Coordinating Size 20 KAM Snaps

Adjustable Elastic Headband:

Instructions:

1.  Cut your Elastic to 24″ length and heat seal the ends with the Lighter.  Be careful to just seal the ends, not start them on fire :).  (You may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time.)

2.  Take your 24″ length of Elastic and feed the decorative/shiny side of the Elastic up through the first loop in the Slider over the bar and back down through the second loop in the Slider.

3.  Pull the Elastic until it is about 3/4″ sticking out the bottom of the second loop of the Slider.

4.  Flip the Slider over so that the wrong sides of the Elastic is face up, this is the bottom of the Slider.  Put a dab of glue on the Elastic and press the 3/4″ of Elastic to it firmly.  Wiping away any excess glue.

5.  From the opposite side, slide the single Slider Loop about half way on to the Elastic.

6.  You now have the single Slider Loop in the center of your elastic and the slider attached to one end.

7.  Take the other end of Elastic decorative side up and feed it through the double Loop Slider the same way as before.  Up through the first Loop over the bar and down through the second Loop.

2.  Once it has had some time to dry, install a Size 20 KAM Snap Cap and stud in the center of each Shabby Flower.  The stud should be facing down on the underside of the Shabby Flower in the Felt.  Repeat for each flower. (In the pictures, I used Size 16 but found that it did not hold well and had to replace them with Size 20.)

3.  Glue the 1/2″x1″ square of Felt to the underside of the Elastic where you want to locate the Shabby Flower.

I Like Big Buttons! KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers

KAM Snap Removal Pliers pic1

KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers may be my favorite tool. They make removing a broken or miss-set snap a breeze. (See video below for demonstration.)

Take 10% any of our snap related products including KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers with coupon code (Good thru 7/19/17): SNAPLOVE

These pliers are the most effective and simplest way to remove a snap. They are gentle on the fabric. Only the hole from the removed prong remains. They also in many cases leave the socket or stud intact and reusable.

KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers:

  • KAM Plastic Snap Removal Pliers
  • Size 20 Socket Removal Die (works fine with Size 14, 16, and 19)
  • Size 20 Stud Removal Die (works fine with Size 14, 16, and 19)
  • Additional Rubber Head
  • Screwdriver (for changing removal dies)

If you need to remove a plastic snap, this is by far the easiest means for removing it.  If you would prefer to remove a snap with tools you may already have, we do have videos on how to do that here.
