headband of your choice

fabric scissors

rhinestones and dark green felt are optional

Flower Crown Tutorial

Felt Flower Crown DIY

Step One | Sit down, put an awesome movie on, get a drink, and prepare yourself to cut a lot of little flowers. The best part? The flowers you cut out DO NOT need to be perfect. The imperfections will be hidden in the folds.

I started by cutting the sheet into 3x 2 inch strips and then cutting those strips into 3 rectangles. Take the rectangle and cut a simple flower out.


If you are a math person the approximate amount of flowers you will be cutting out goes something like this:

Each BIG headband flower = 6 mini cut out flowers

Each filler headband flower = 2 mini cut out flowers

There were 3 big flowers + 4 filler flowers = 20 mini cut out flowers

Step Two | After you’ve used the above diagram to create 3 big flowers from the little cut outs then it’s time to place and secure your flower placements.

I first centred one flower in the middle and then gave the width of my finger to measure the next flowers to the left and right of the centre.

Once you’ve glued those into place use the remaining cutout flowers to fill those gaps between the main flowers on the headband. I liked the look of adding two cutout flowers on the outside of the outer main flowers.

It created a fade effect for the headband, instead of 3 random honking flowers on top of my toddlers head.

OPTIONAL LEAVES | If you cut out leaves this is where you would add them into your arrangement.

Step Three | I added a piece of felt to secure all the bases, this also makes it so none of the flowers will snag when my toddler repetitively takes off and puts on this headband.

OPTIONAL RHINESTONES | This headband was for a wedding so I wanted a bit of sparkle for the flower girl, so I tucked sticky rhinestones into the centres of the flowers. It’s super easy!

TA-DA! And you are done!

Philips Avent Digital Video Baby Monitor Review | Keep A Secure Connection With Your Baby

Take Time For Yourself And Be Reassured Your Baby Is Safe With Philips Avent

The holidays hit our family hard – both my girls have been battling horrible coughs for the past week, Matt may have recently caught what the girls have, and I am plugging away trying to get over a rough week of stomach issues. You could say we could use some rest and recuperation before Matt goes back to University!

Thank goodness Abigail is still hitting her naps hard because I need the “me” time, the down time to make it through the rest of the mucus-y day. The Philips Avent Digital Video Monitor let’s me rest while I am always close to my baby.

I love that the Philips Avent Digital Video Monitor‘s visual and audio are crystal clear – being able to hear if her breathing is wheezy or if her cough is worse/better when she is sleeping helps me when I have to relay these symptoms back to the doctor. 

Plus I trust the PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Seal Of Approval, check out the most recent winning children’s and baby’s products!

Other little details I find make a huge difference in the Philips Avent Digital Video Monitor are:

Talkback: Talkback is my favourite feature especially when your baby is 1 year old or older. Being able to tell your child through the parent monitor to “relax” or “lay down” or “stop pulling off your diaper” (I have said these all in real life) without walking across your home multiple times is a life saver!

Temperature: You can set your temperature range (either in Fahrenheit or Celsius) and if the temperature goes outside that set range the parent monitor will be sent a customized alert.

Vibration Alert: I love this feature when I turn off the sound, because I’m not watching the monitor 24/7 to see the sound activated light – being able to hear or feel a vibration alert takes this monitor to the next level.

Clip On: As you can see in the photo above, the parent monitor can clip onto your pants (with a belt or not). It’s positioned so that when you lift it up to look at it you can see it right side up, rather than having to unhook it and turn it around to get a better look at your child on the monitor.

Private + Secure Connection: Living Downtown and in an apartment building who knows how many monitors or walkie-talkies or who-knows-whats are in the area. Having a private and secure connection to the video monitor makes me feel more safe and have peace at mind while my baby is sleeping.

I wish I had had this monitor 3 years ago when Annaliese was born. As a new parent (maybe it’s normal after all the post pregnancy hormones) I had all kinds of horrible anxiety the first week and especially the first few days –  when I was supposed to be “napping” while she was napping (what a joke, but seriously if you can JUST DO IT) I would keep myself up because I was afraid if I fell asleep I wouldn’t hear her when she woke up, and that gave me more anxiety. 

But with the Philips Avent Digital Video Monitor and all of it’s amazing features I believe they’ve created a device that will help moms and dads ease their anxiety with parenting. 

And what is the best part? Philips Avent is giving away 2 video monitors! You can enter for yourself or enter to give it to a family member or friend. Enter through the link below! For Canadian residents only excluding Quebec.
