Quick and Easy Interchangeable Crafts: Lace Headband and Baby Shoes {Delightfully Creative}

These two projects are quick, easy ones-even for the non-crafter- AND they make wonderful gifts. Basically, there's nothing to them.


  I actually found this lace headband with a ribbon at Hobby Lobby (in the jewelry section). BUT, I have seen similar lace sold at Joann's that I think will work just as well.

The headband came with a black ribbon sewn into the middle. I decided I needed a longer ribbon and that it didn't have to be sewn in, which inspired me to make it interchangeable. I already had a myriad of colored ribbon that same width!

So, I simply cut the other ribbon to length, pulled out the stitches, pulled out the ribbon, and then wove a different color through the lace. 

Here it is in my hair in green.

And here it is in red.

Love it! It does take a minute to change out the ribbon, but it is super easy.

Baby Shoes
 I also found these cute baby shoes at Hobby Lobby-mind you, they are for not-yet-walkers (the bottoms are a bit slippery). They come in sizes from 0 months-12 months, though my baby is 14 months and usually wears a size 3.5 or 12-18 month shoe, and her 6-12 month pair still fits.

I thought they were super cute, but I wouldn't use them much because Cupcake doesn't have a ton of hot pink stuff (we try to vary her color!). After inspecting them, I figured the stitched-on flowers could be easily removed and remain in-tact. 

I brought them home and that's what I did. I also found similar brown flowers in the jewelry section, but I also intend on making some more fabric flowers in different colors.

I simply removed the flowers, hot glued small, round fuzzy-sided Velcros to the shoe and then hot glued the coarse sides to the bottoms of the flowers.

And that's it! Cute, interchangeable shoes.

Next friend that has a girl is receiving some of these!

I know what you're wondering-does she pull off the flowers? Nope-the Velcro is strong enough. And Cupcake pulls EVERYTHING off her feet-sock, shoes, fuzz-you name it.

Delightfully Creating,
