Add some colorful roses and some mini horses to a headband for an alternative to a big hat for the Kentucky Derby (or Cinco de Mayo) with this fun and festive DIY Kentucky Derby Headband!
This was supposed to be finished before the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, however, things didn’t quite work out. So I decided to make it into a cross over Kentucky Derby/Cinco De Mayo Headband. Both involve beautiful flowers, not really sure if the horses crossover but you get the picture.
A few weeks ago, Lion Brand Yarns asked 11 bloggers to create a DIY project using their newest yarn, Bonbons. When I found out earlier this week that I had won, I seriously had to be scrapped off the ceiling!
Im so thrilled to have my DIY project chosen. They chose winning project based on showing the versatility of Bonbons:
- That with one pack you can create a simple project and still play with color.
- This project can be recreated by all ages and all crafting skill levels.
- The additional items used are also very easily found.
I had a lot of fun making this project. It was very quick to make and fun to do, I loved mixing up all the colors! This would make a great project for a DIY party. You could mix up the colors and share with friends.
I also wanted to share with you and revisit some of the other projects I made using Bonbons yarn:
- DIY Bracelets in Bonbons
- Wrapped & beaded DIY bracelet
- DIY Hand painted embellished t shirt
- Wrapped headband DIY in Bonbons
Bonbons is a really fun yarn. It comes in three different qualities; 100% cotton, 100% acrylic and 100% acrylic with glitter. The tiny skeins are completely adorable and also very convenient for small craft projects and theyre perfect for young children who are learning to craft, knit, crochet, etc.
Thanks again to Lion Brand Yarns, I had so much fun playing with this yarn!
