One of my sisters 17th birthday was earlier this month and she loves headbands!
That's actually all she wanted me to make her for her birthday. ( I love easy!)
My husband likes to eat oatmeal and he was going to throw the container out and I immediately stopped him and said " Wait! I could definitely use that for something. I don't know what, but I'll figure it out."
He looked at me and just shook his head like I'm some crazy crafter lady or something. Men just don't understand how to look outside of the box --or oatmeal container-- :) I know...don't quit my day job and just stick with the crafting. HA!
This project is so easy and perfect for any girl in your family or a friend! This project can also be done a few different ways. I used scotch tape for my project because you couldn't see it on the type of paper I was using. Next time, I will probably use modge podge for a more "finished" look.
Scotch tape or Modge Podge
I started off using two 12 x 12 pieces of scrapbooking paper. I then wrapped it around my container and taped in place
When you get to the bottom of your container fold your pieces over and tape in place as well.
Using hot glue, wrap your ribbon around the top and bottom of your container
For the lid, you want to Carefully peel the paper top off.
Using the paper part of the lid, trace a circle out of your desired scrapbooking paper
Put glue around the rim of the lid and place you paper down
Your headband holder is finished!!
If you would like to see how I made the white headband with the green and blue polka dots continue reading!
I took a headband that I had bought from walmart and cut a long strip of fabric that was at least 2 inches wide.
Fold your fabric in half wrong sides together and hot glue to one end of your headband.
Wrap your fabric around your headband. Stop and use a small amount of hot glue every few inches to help keep your fabric from sliding.
When you get to the end of your headband, clip any extra material you have left.
Fold the edge over and glue in place
OPTIONAL: Use fray block ( read directions on package) on your material to prevent the stray pieces from fraying more.
Using my Rolled Fabric Flower tutorial found HERE make three matching flowers.
Using felt, make small loops to be able to slide your flowers on and off the headband.
I hope you enjoyed reading!
