Baby Headbands | Baby Shower Activity
I'm not a big "games" person, especially when it comes to baby showers.

This particular baby shower was Paris themed and although the entire shower was simply adorable, I loved their activity the most(ess): making headbands for the baby! One of the hostesses actually made these bows ahead of time but depending on your guests, you could set out a picture or [...]

DIY No-Sew Pacifier Clips
I made these pacifier clips after seeing them on Pinterest but there was not a tutorial so I thought I'd share how I made mine. Materials Needed:Suspender/Mitten Clips (I actually used Ironing Board Clips I found at Jo Ann's because they were cheaper than buying multiple packages of individual suspender clips.) Velcro tapeGlue gun/ glue sticks (or thread/ sewing machine)12-inch long ribbon (as many as you want for however many clips you want to make)Optional: beads, lace, twine or anything else you want to use to dress up your clips. First of all, I'm no seamstress.
