New Headband :)

I made a new headband :)

(made by me)

I saw this one (below) at Dillard's..but didn't want to by 20 something dollars for it! So I made my own :) Obviously it's the logical thing to do!
you can find this one here @ Dillards

...and here I am, wearing it! Please excuse my pictures...I'm lookin' a little rough! lol
(It's a bit dificult to see it too since it's black and my hair is brown :/ )

lol, yep...this pic awesome..NoT

I'm pretty excited though. I've made other headbands as gifts for friends, but for some reason had yet to make one for myself! So when I saw that one at Dillard's, I knew I had to make it for myself.

I bought the black fabric covered headband  at Hobby Lobby for about $1. I usually take a plastic headband from the dollar store and cover it myself w/ either fabric or ribbon...but I cheated and used a pre-covered band!

Next I just cut out three circles from felt and used those circles as templates to cut my circles out of my satin fabric.

Finally, I just folded up the fabric circles and hot glued them to the felt. It took anywhere from 8-10 satin circles to make each flower.

Just glue it onto the headband now!

I'll post a tutorial with pictures soon...just couldn't wait to show you!!

Crystal! I am in awe and what a cute, clever idea. I finally let me hair grow out and I've been trying to do different things with it. If I'm motivated over the next couple weeks (giving myself time, lol).. I will attempt the headband! I'll be sure to post pics.

Thanks for the idea!!! You're so beautiful.
