holiday hair band tutorial

IMG_3940
Tis the season for holiday parties and events and if you are like me that means pulling together last minute outfits and holiday accessories (that do not include yoga pants and paint stained t-shirts)! Why not make your own hair accessories to top off a festive outfit. An easy option is to take a little time to make your own holiday hair band- super simple to make and costs next to NOTHING!

Remember those rolled roses that I love to make out of scraps of fabric ? Well once again they are perfect to make for hair accessories and there are all kinds of pretty holiday ribbon at stores right now that is perfect to use.

Using ribbon, knot and roll into a flower (my is tutorial here).

I created three flowers in different sizes.

Next, I used sparkly beads and filled the inside of the flowers with my favorite glue- Liquid Fusion.

After the beads have dried, use thin stretchy elastic, measure your head and cut to size.
Sew the ends of the elastic together.
The last step is to glue the flowers to the surface of the elastic band.

You can wear the band to the side, with short hair or long hair, in a pony tail or up do.

Use different colors of ribbon and beads.

Or keep it simple with all white.

p.s. they even make a great last minute gift!

Perfect timing! Have a formal holiday party tomorrow evening, and was wondering what to do w/my short hair... Think I'll make your ribbon roses and attach to one of those thin headbands...maybe cover the headband w/ribbon first... Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

Because of health issues, I have very, very little hair so I look a bit boyish these days, and these would be so cute and make me feel so much more feminine than I do right now. Thanks so much for a great idea and the steps to make them.
Peace & Love,
~Barb~
