Crafts: Headbands

Headbands have become a hair go-to recently. While headbands have been around forever the look has been updated by adding flowers or feathers to it. If you follow fashion you have seen these everywhere!

Even though there are a lot of options out there I decided that I could make my own and make them more unique. It's super easy to do, in fact you can cheat big time and buy pre-made feather pads at your local craft store, or even on Etsy. Then you can just glue it to a headband, which you can buy at Target (or elsewhere).
I actually bought the bare bones headbands, which is your basic metal that you cover or paint yourself. Here are two of the headbands I have created so far...

I made this red one by gathering different feathers and wrapping them together. I then attached it to the headband that I had wrapped in black ribbon. To finish it off I wrapped a bronze leather at the base of the feathers.

This green one was totally a random idea. I have also been making large flower clips for your hair, but I was left with their leaves. So I decided to make a headband out of them. I covered the metal headband with the leaves and then attached three to the side of it, like you do with the feathers. To add to the look I rolled one the leaves and glued it at the base of where the 3 leave met. I then also added a green rhinestone above the rolled leaf. I really like how this one came out and how different it is!

*Sorry for the lack of makeup and hair style. I am packing for a trip and need to get my hair recolored.
