Measure the ribbon so that it can wrap around your doll's head and can be tied securely.
Take hot glue and attach the cabochons to the ribbon. Be sure to trim all the glue strings from the hairband!
You want enough cabochons/Mod Melts that it covers the top and side of the hairband, but you don't need the underside covered–it won't be seen, and it makes the hairband bulky.
Tie the hairband around the dolls head. I just tied it like a double tied shoelace, but if you want, you could hot glue the ends together.
With this finishing touch, Marie Grace is ready for her ballet debut. If your child is old enough to handle a glue gun, she could make this accessory! To complete the outfit, try a no-sew embellished tutu to match.
Thanks again to KC for letting me stop by and share this fun project with you. I hope you enjoyed it, and that you'll stop by and see me at Architecture of a Mom!
Thanks so much for this cute idea, Rachel. What other cute and simple American Girl crafts have you done with or for your daughter? I love that this one could be made for the doll and the girl. Perfect!
