Homemade Headband

Hi guys!

Back in the 1990's, I and every girl I knew wore a headband. It kept our hair in place and was a cute accessory. I remember saving my allowance so that I could buy different kinds: thin, thick, plain, floral, with teeth and without, with bows, flowers, and beads.

Well, headbands are back:

It's a good thing I kept this old one from years ago:

I hardly wore it since, left it at the back of the drawer, and almost added it to the donation pile. Time to give it new life!

I also found a floral scarf and two hair ties.

I tied the scarf at the top of the headband and made two knots.

Then I wrapped the rest of the scarf around the headband.

I folded the tails of the scarf and kept them secure with a hair tie on each end of the headband. No need to sew or use glue.

Old headband, new look...TADA!

I can create more looks by using other scarves and strips of fabric and use this headband while it's on trend. Since a lot of still work from home and do virtual meetings, a headband is a quick way to change our look.

Stay safe everyone!
