Cute DIY Valentine’s hairband – great kids craft too!

My 6 year old little girl loves crafting… which totally makes my heart so happy. We have a lot of fun doing simple crafts together. She found my stash of pipe cleaners and started making shapes with them. One of those shapes was a heart. This gave me an idea! We made a Valentine’s hairband! It was so fun and quick to make and I think it turned out really cute!! A super easy and fun DIY Valentines day hairband for little girls

It was basically free since we had all the materials, but if you do end up buying specially for this project it might be like $2!
