Blooming BOHO Headband Instructions:

BOHO baby gifts

Step 1: measure out about 12 inches and cut the peach ruffled elastic.

Step 2: Take a dab of hot glue and attach the ends of the peach ruffled elastic together.

Step 3: Let cool. While cooling, remove all ranunculus and delphinium blooms from stems with your wire cutters.

Step 4: Grad your favorite ranunculus bloom and dab with hot glue. Attach to ruffled elastic. Position bloom on the right side of the headband.

Step 5: Cut a bit of the Boho lacy ribbon ( about 1.5”) and affix it to the back of the bloom. This will help hold the bloom in place as the elastic expands and contracts.

Step 6: Add in additional small blooms, feathers and glitter leaves with hot glue to create your perfect look. Feathers that are too large can be cut to the perfect size to fit your headband. There are no rules here so let your creativity flow!

The feather and the ruffles create the perfect softness. The glitter leaf adds in that little flair.

Fringe Tassel and embroidered BOHO Headband Instruction:

BOHO baby gifts

There are lots of different looks you can do for BOHO headbands following those same instructions above. This particular headband utilizes a BOHO embroidered flower set and some DIY fringe tassel to create its look.

Step 1: Follow steps 1-3 above, but grab your ivory ruffle elastic for this headband. It complements the embroidered flowers so well on this headband.

Step 2: Since the embroidered flowers are already complete in the set (awesome right?!) You can just secure these on the elastic with hot glue.

Step 3: Add in the lace behind the embroidered flowers to secure to the elastic.

Step 4: Get your suede fringe and measure and cut about 2” of it.

Step 5: Roll one side inward and secure with hot glue. Continue to roll until the end is met and secure the end with hot glue.

Step 6: Secure the fringe tassel behind the embroidery flower decal. Placement is up to you and you can use as many as you would like. They are cute no matter where you put them! I like them placed on the left top and bottom right of the embroidered flowers.

Step 7: Glue an extra embroidered flower that comes in the set to the middle of the decal. Let dry.

Now you have a fun suede fringe and embroidered flower headband that is too darling! It’s a more rustic BOHO look than the blooming one above, but still lovely!

Floral crown/headband instructions:

Floral crowns are all the rage with BOHO looks and they are so easy to make! Grab your gray elastic for this look and the floral blooms that you snipped for the first headband and we are ready to craft.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 1: Follow steps 1-3 from the first headband, but grab your gray ruffle elastic for this headband. It blends in really well with the gray-green leafs we are going to add to it.

Step 2: Grab your favorite bloom and hot glue it to the gray elastic.

Step 3: Snip some leafs from the ranunculus stem. Use 1 to attach to the back of the bloom so that it stays put with the elastic expands and contracts.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 4: Continue to hot glue different blooms to the front of the elastic. Securing each one in the back with a ranunculus leaf.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 5: Continue to glue blooms until you have about 5 or 6 in the front. These should completely cover the front of the headband so when it sits on a little head, you only see blooms. You can choose to cover the entire thing with blooms if you want to too. The look is, how you envision it! Once the glue is dried, you have a completely beautiful BOHO floral crown.

We love giving headbands as gifts to newborns because they are seriously adorable when they wear them. Mom will have fun dressing up the baby for months and months with these 3 completely chic BOHO headbands.

DIY No-Sew BOHO Baby Bibs

BOHO baby gifts

Here is what you need for the bibs:
• Fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores Earth Child Line
o The three I used were- Aztec Jacquard Navy, Cotton feel with pom poms, and Pink Cozy
Unique Stitch, stitchless sewing
• OR Heat N Bond
Fabric Scissors
Grey/Brown weaved Yarn
White Feathers
Faux Suede Fringe
1 bloom of Peach Ranunculus
Glue Gun & Glue

Pom Pom BOHO Bib instructions:

BOHO baby gifts

Step 1: Take a 12 x 12 sheet of paper and cut it in half. This will be your template for cutting your bandana.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 2: Place your paper template at the edge of the cotton pom pom fabric. The pom poms will be on the left side on your first cut. You will cut the other side of the fabric with the pom poms and that 2nd time the pom poms will be on the right.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 3: Use unique stitch if you like gluing or heat n bond if you like ironing. Unique stitch takes 30 min- 1 hour to dry so if you are in a hurry, then heat n bond is a better option between the two. You will turn the top edges (not side edges) inward on piece 1, and adhere them with a unique stitch or heat n bond.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 4: Continue the same step with piece 2. Let the glue dry or fabric cool on both pieces.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 5: Lay pieces on top of each other. Bottom piece should have pom poms toward the left, the top piece should have pom poms on the right.

Step 6: Use hot glue and place small dots/lines of glue on the edging of the bottom piece pom poms border. You will take the top piece tuck it under that border and glue down.

Step 7: Do this on both sides but leave to top open.

Step 8: Take your top sides with the folded edges and adhere them with a unique stitch or Heat n bond. Be sure to leave a little opening on the left and right corner sides to add yarn as the tie for the bib.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 9: Take a bit of hot glue and glue in about 6” of yarn on the left and right corners.

Pink BOHO Baby Bib Instructions:

This bib is made very similarly to the top two, but it has some added flair to it like suede fringe and a bloom to make it unique. Here is how to make this cutie!

Step 1: Take your template and cut 2 pieces from the pink cozy fabric.

Step 2: Glue in all side edges inward on both pieces with a unique stitch or heat n bond.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 3: Face both pieces together with edges facing each other and bond them together with a unique stitch or heat n bond. Finish the top of this bib just like the others. Don’t forget to leave a little gap for the yarn on both corners, so your bib has a tie.

Step 4: Now time for some details! Hot glue the fringe to the back bottom of the bib on the left and right back of the bib.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 5: Take a small feather from the pack and hot glue it to the front of the bib. The bottom right of the bib is a good place for it and just low enough so it isn’t sticking up at the top.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 6: Take one of your blooms and add some hot glue to the back of it. Add this on top of the feather on the front.

BOHO baby gifts

All the bibs are so cute. They totally work for bandanas too. Meant more for clothing than function, these bibs are the cutest accessory for the new little one.

With all those accessories, the baby and mom are going to need somewhere to put them. That brings us to my 3rd fun BOHO baby gift, a DIY accessory frame.

To make this frame, even more, BOHO, add some fabric flowers, tassels and pom poms to them.

Not sure how to make fabric flowers? They are easy! Here is my No-Sew DIY Fabric Flower tutorial that never fails.

DIY Fabric Flowers

BOHO baby gifts

Step 1: Lay out your fabric horizontally so you are looking at it the longest way.

Step 2: Cut about a 1-2” slit in the fabric, but don’t cut the whole piece. You are going to tear the piece all the way down the fabric. This adds edges which add dimension to the fabric flowers.

Step 3: Fold the piece in half and then tie a knot where the middle is with the two pieces. You want this knot to be as flat as possible.

BOHO baby gifts

Step 4: Take the middle and start twisting the two ends together. Then start twisting that into a circle. Add hot glue as you go.

Now you have a fabric flower you can put on almost anything! Continue this with the different colors and change up the length of your fabric so you can get all different sizes. It’s a great detail and I love how simple it is.

Hot glue these and other details like tassels and pom poms to complete your accessory frame.
