Ok, so you have the cake now you need some party favors. If you’re the birthday girl you want to make sure everyone know it or at the very least get enjoyment from making your guests wear some party gear. This is a super cute and easy way to make your very own custom birthday headbands. These ones are great for a birthday but you can have some real fun making them say all sorts of things for different themed parties or occasion. I’ll let your imagination fill in the blanks.
What you’ll need for this project is a set of Quartlet characters or any similar type of plastic alphabet, plastic headbands, hot glue gun and some spray paint. You can have some fun coming up with what you want your party flare to say.
Then go crazy with spray paint. Ok, don’t go crazy because you’ll probably regret that later but responsibly spray paint the letters on a covered surface in a well ventilated area. Not in your living room, I repeat, not in your living room. I speak from experience. Just do what I say, not what I do. If you want to save money or make life a bit easier you can definitely just stick with one color. I happen to have a spray paint collection and it’s a birthday party so I had fun with color.
Next use the glue gun to adhere letters to the headbands. I highly suggest sticking with a hot glue gun over other types of glue for this one because it cools & sets quickly. You really don’t want to have to hold each letter for minutes waiting for some glue to dry.
Hooray! Time to party, girl!
