Two Lovely Headbands

Hi everyone!

When I was trying to come up with ideas for my friends' Christmas presents, I finally decided on making a couple of headbands. I had never done any with elastic before, but I think they turned out really cute! Now I want to make one for myself!(: These were inspired by a tutorial on Alisa Burke's blog. I really loved the beads in the middle, and the idea of using ribbon. And so, almost immediately after reading her post, I made these two beauties:

Thing 1:


& Thing 2:


The glue was still wet on this one! I was so paranoid that the beads would start falling off that I really went crazy with the glue. XD

But these are so cute and simple! And you don't have to do it with elastic either...any kind of headband or hair accessory would work. I don't really care for elastic headbands because they always slip off of my head, no matter how tight or loose they are, even if they do look very cute.

Have a lovely day!
