DIY Flapper Girl Fairy Princess Headband

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

While I was home over the break I decided to venture out of my house and visit the local craft store. This is something I hadn't done in eons. Partially because I lacked the income and inspiration.
However, I recently hopped on the Pinterest boat. I've had an account forever, but my mind can only hold so many variations of the single password that I've used since middle school before it begins to let some slip away. And I always sigh at the whole process of recovering passwords.
Anyway, while browsing Pinterest, I found some craft items to conjure up and headed to the local craft store. It was great fun trying to find a bargain. In my small town, it is the only craft store and is so monopolistic about it. I cringed as I bought a yard of sparkle glitter ribbon for $18. When I finished my crafting I was left with more than half a yard of the beautiful stuff.  I didn't want to leave the ribbon sitting in a box so I came up with this idea.
Necessary supplies.
Amazon has similar ribbon for less here, here and here!
Let's get started.
Begin by gathering all necessary supplies: beaded ribbon, a needle, thread, two elastic hair ties and scissors should all be on the list!
On a side note I would like to mention there is no need to buy new hair ties, use old ones, nobody will notice. I like to be frugal and sacrifice the hair ties that refuse to hold my hair up to the gods of DIY.

 Tie a lark's head knot with one of the hair ties.

 Whip stitch the end of the headband, to one hair tie. Make sure there are no twists in the ribbon and then repeat for the other side.
