Last Minute Halloween Costume Idea DIY: Animal Headbands

Tomorrow is finally Halloween! While Husband and I will be Blair Waldorf and Chuck Bass later on in the evening at the annual Halloween party we go to, we need something fun for when the kids come trick-or-treating earlier in the evening. I have a cute vampire bat face dress I got on Etsy a few years ago that I’ll pair with a little witch’s hat I have and some tights. Our storage unit has a cowboy hat and pirate hat that Husband could have worn, but we haven’t had the chance to get over there yet, so he has nothing fun at the ready. But don’t worry, I’ve fixed that issue in 5 minutes! Continue reading Last Minute Halloween Costume Idea DIY

Project: DIY Turban Headband Tutorial

I love the look of turban headbands, but usually they are either WAY too large (Hello! I don’t want 100% of my hair covered or else I’d wear a hat!) OR they are WAY too expensive (Oh Anthropologie, you do it to me every time! $38 for one headband?! I just can’t.) I started searching and found many a tutorial on making your own. Some were great and some were, well, really hard to follow. I took pieces of several different tutorials and came up with my own, for a skinnier version of a turban headband! It isn’t perfect, but I really like how it turned out. Maybe you will too! Continue reading DIY Turban Headband Tutorial

Project: DIY Knotted Headband

I LOVE this headband! I have made several different colors of it already out of the t-shirt yarn that you already know I have a small obsession with (thumbs up for upcycling!) For awhile, I was just tying the ends to a hair tie, like I did in the no-sew version of my braided headband, but I recently bought some fold-over elastic and decided to add it in to the mix. I’m liking the way it came out! Continue reading DIY Knotted Headband Tutorial

No Sew Braided Headband

Project: No Sew Braided Headband

Let me preface this post by saying this is one of the easiest headbands you will ever make. The other easiest is in the Tips!

Soon (hopefully very soon!) I’ll be able to put away my adorable winter hat and sport some even cuter headbands in weather that doesn’t freeze my face off. In anticipation of such, I’m on a headband-making-spree. In addition to the reversible headbands that require time, patience and a sewing machine (post on those to come!), I’m making these really fun braided headbands in every color that require only a few minutes and no sewing at all!
