Don’t toss out those little broken toys and colourful plastic bits of silliness in your junk drawer!
Transform them into groovy upcycled DIY kiddo accessories in minutes with my simple tute:
Grab a headband, a broken toy, scissors/cutting tool and your trusty glue gun.
If necessary, chop up the toy into pieces that will easily fit onto the headband.
Glue the bits of toy to the headband.
Present it to your (dubious) kiddo to enjoy!
Add some coordinating trim to the edge when she complains that it’s “missing something”.
Steal a few of the munchkin’s plastic rings, snag some bits from the junk drawer + your trusty glue gun.
Glue the junk-drawer-bits to the rings.
Go make a bunch more and use them as funky gifts and party favors!
