Last night around 10:30, I got the insatiable urge to craft. These headbands, in particular. I saw them on pinterest a few weeks ago, and couldn't get them out of my head. I'm, uh, kind of obsessed with headbands. I have more than I could ever wear in my entire life, and yet I continue to buy them, and make them, and grow them on a tree in my backyard. (kidding. mostly.)
Anyways, I digress. Although I thought it was a bit late for crafting, I grabbed my trusty hot glue gun, some fabric scraps, and a few boring, ugly headbands. In literally TEN minutes (not kidding, because I was definitely snuggled up in my bed in my PJs twenty minutes later. Just call me grandma.) I had one fabulously easy, super-cute fabric-wrapped headband.
The website linked above gives a pretty great tutorial, but basically what I did was this: cut a long, thin fabric strip (mine was cotton, but I think any fabric would work) about 4x the length of the headband, and alternate putting a few inches of glue on the headband & wrapping, glue & wrap, and so on and so forth. Once that was finished, I braided a fabric strip about 1in. longer than my headband, and knotted the ends as flatly as I could. Glued it on, and voila!
Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if all of my boring, basic headbands got the braided fabric treatment this week. SO easy and so cute-- good thing I have enough headbands to DIY for an army :)
