Any mom with a little girl can relate to my morning hair combing struggles. If I can catch my 2 year old, cue the temper tantrum of not wanting to sit still while I try to pull her hair into something that resembles a ponytail. And if there are tangles, forget about it. Toddlers are a blast.
We recently went on a little shopping trip to Target (because that’s our happy place and go to place for hair accessories) and I let her pick out her own brush and accessories. She picked out colorful Goody Ouchless Elastics and a Goody Ouchless Girls Oval Brush, in pink of course. This brush has been life changing. I can get the tangles out quicker and without complaint. There are no tear for anyone involved.
I crafted up a few felt spring flowers to go on the elastics and allow my daughter to pick out a flower for her hair every morning. She happily allows me to put her hair up in a bun or ponytail so I can add the flower to her hair. Why didn’t I think of that before?! Hooray for no more hair in the eyes and a cute hair accessory that made it look like I spent longer than 3 minutes on her hair!

Step 2: Cut a strip of felt 11 x 2 inches and fold it in half. Glue the very ends together on the long side, leaving a little pocket in the inside.
Step 3: Cut slits into the fold, as shown in the photo below. The thicker slits, the thicker petals you will get.
Step 4: Roll the strip of felt from one end to the other, adding drops of hot glue periodically to hold it together.
Step 5: Hot glue a Goody Ouchless hair tie on the back and hot glue a small piece of felt on top of the hair tie to secure it to the flower.
Step 6: Make all the colors of the rainbow, just because. Place them in plastic Easter eggs for a fun Easter basket filler!
Step 7: Use the Goody Ouchless Girls Oval Brush to put your little girl’s hair in a pony tail or bun and secure with your new felt flower elastic!
