Ya know, I thought that once Emilee started Kindergarten I’d magically turn into this organized, on the ball mom who suddenly woke before the crack of dawn, showered, did her hair and make-up and got dressed all before the kids got up. Ummmm, no. Not so much. I often find myself scurrying around trying to do the girls hair and get them out the door for school. Most days I manage to pull it off with getting their hair up in their trademark ponytails but other days, I need a quick solution to taming Emilee’s wild hair. Thankfully she likes to wear her hair down so popping on a headband is a quick solution. Never having one on hand (that would be too easy), I decided to make some, thanks to this easy tutorial over at Paige and Brooke. They provide you with a template to download and all. Can’t get any better than that.

DIY Reversible Headbands

For the ones shown, I did make my own template and found that this would work better on adults with bigger heads. Is that mean? lol These were a bit too wide for Emilee although she didn’t seem to mind and managed to keep it on all day at school. That’s a huge feat for her!
