star headband

i know this was posted a long time ago, but did anyone notice the rad headbeand i was wearing for my cd release outfit?? i proudly made and wore that headband :)

all my friends insisted i go "glam" for the release. but i really wanted to wear a headband, even though it reads as more hippie/ hipster. i decided to compromise by throwing some glitter on one, and calling it good :)

super secret about myself: i love glitter! i stifle my love for glitter most of the time. i think it can look tacky. however, i loved the idea of a sparkly accent for my special day.

i had some scrap leather pieces, so i just drew stars on them like so-

next, i cut out the stars with a regular ole' pair of scissors, and glittered them with tacky glue.

i then used glue to attach the stars to my headband. voila! easy peasy leather/ glitter headband. i only ended up doing one star, just because i didn't like the way two looked together. i'm sure there are soo many other shapes and textures you could try with this!

have a fantastic day, loved ones :)

  2. Love this headband!!!!! I share your secret love of glitter! I try to restrain myself, but I'm a total magpie (sparkle, sparkle!). My friend calls glitter 'the herpes of craft' - she kills my glitter buzz hahaa!
