Lately I'm loving headbands. Not the Alice in Wonderland kind but the glam I'm kind of a goddess type.
Did you watch the RHOC reunion? Pretend I didn't either.... But if we had we would have seen Lydia who often wears these cute new kind of headbands
Not a bad price but I thought to myself "this would not be hard to make."
I don't know what their intended purpose is but they worked perfectly. (I found the corded elastic near the fabric)
I measured the headband I already had purchased and decided that my ideal length was going to be around 20". (I don't like to wear a headband and a headache.) I find that I like these headbands sort of loose. I've kind of been wearing them as an almost halo and usually pin my hair either half up or all up so they are secured by bobby pins.
Easiest tutorial ever:
The jewels were 7" long so I added 26" in elastic
(because it's doubled over and I wanted an overall length of 20")
I literally looped the elastic through the ends of the jewels and tied a square knot in the middle
securing both pieces together
Trim the ends
What do you think?
(This is my 'Greek goddess' vignette filter attempt)
What do you think? Will you make a headband or two? Do you like this new trend?
