If you’re anything like me, as a ModCloth customer, you most likely have a stash of freebie headbands in your closet. While these sequined bands are stylish on their own, they also provide a great base for a plethora of project possibilities. With two of my own bands in hand, I took a crack at restyling each one.
For a vintage-inspired style that will stay all day:
1. Gather your materials: a thin fabric headband, scissors, a needle and thread, and a long vintage scarf.
2. Remove any embellishments on your headband.
3. Determine the center of your scarf and headband by folding both in half and laying one on top of the other.
4. Take one side of your scarf, and using your needle and thread, attach it to one end of the headband, allowing the end of the scarf to hang loose.
5. Repeat step four on the opposite side.
6. Using your needle and thread, sew that side, allowing the other end of the scarf to hang loose. Now, simply slip your scarf over your tresses and tie the scarf behind your neck for a vintage-inspired look that will be sure to stay put.
For a springtime-inspired floral crown:
1. Gather your materials: an elastic sequined headband, thread, hot glue gun, scissors, silky fabric or faux flowers.
2. Cut your fabric into long rectangles, about 3″ wide by 7″ long.
3. Starting from one end, gather each fabric rectangle into a bow shape and secure with thread.
4. Create enough bows to cover your headband.
5. Apply hot glue to the back of each bow.
6. Starting from one side of your headband, adhere flowers all the way around. You can add as many or as few as you’d like.
7. Allow the glue to dry, and take your headband out for a springtime spin!
