    I used fabric covered buttons and tulle to make my little girl’s hair accessories this Valentine’s Day. Her skirt had a tulle ruffle at the bottom, so I took some of the leftover tulle, gathered it as tight as possible and made a flower then took the fabric covered button (from the skirt fabric)and put it in the middle to cinch up the flower and keep it all together. Then I just tied this flower onto a headband she already had. I don’t have a blog to link for pictures–but it literally took me 5 minutes and it just made the outfit!
