Beauty and the Beast Inspired Hair Ties

These Beauty and the Beast inspired hair ties are perfect for your little princess!

It hit me last week that I was 9 years old when the original Disney animated film Beauty and the Beast arrived in theaters. This month, with the company of my own 9-year-old daughter, I was able to see the live-action recreation. I couldn’t imagine my childhood favorite could get any better, but it was even more amazing.

The lovely Emma Watson, the back stories, and the gorgeous scenes of France. I’m seriously spellbound and know I’ll be watching it again and again with my own little girls.

My daughters and I have been obsessing over all things Beauty and the Beast, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that our craft projects have also been paying homage to our favorite princess, Belle.

One of the things we made were Beauty and the Beast inspired hair ties, complete with no-sew felt roses. They’re an easy way to give a nod to your favorite princess.

Celebrate your favorite princess with these Beauty and the Beast inspired hair ties.

To give the flower more natural looking petals, cut a scalloped edge around the outside of the circle using scalloped scissors. Next, cut the circle into a spiral starting from the outside of the circle.

To form the rose, start by holding the center of the felt and roll outward. Once you’ve reached the end, secure with hot glue.

To ensure the rose will not drop petals and break any spells, make an additional circle from the red felt approximately the size of the base of your flower. Hot glue the circle to the bottom your rose.

Add a white bead to the center of your flower and secure using hot glue.

Position the 2 leaves on the bottom of the rose, and then hot glue everything onto the ruffle elastic.
