~Santa's Little Bloggers~ Anthropologie Inspired Headband

Hello all you lovely Frugal Foodie Mama readers. I'm Lauren & I blog over at Tutus & Tea Parties about parenting, crafting and a few things in between. I'd love for you to stop by & say hello! 
 {yep, we're crazy!}

I'm so happy to be here today to share an easy DIY gift tutorial with you today. Gift giving gets so overwhelming, not to mention expensive! My thought is: handmade is the best! It's cheaper than buying & it's made with love. How can you beat that?!


 How lovely is this mustard bloom headband from Anthropologie? I just love the color and the accents on it! Only problem...it's $128! Ouch.

Well, good thing I have a tutorial for you today to make this baby for less...way, way less!




Materials:
  • plain, thick headband
  • hot glue gun & hot glue
  • mustard (or color of choice) ribbed ribbon
  • a few broaches of choice (I got mine at Michaels on sale for about $1-$2 each pack)

What to do:
  • Cut two short strips. Heat set the edges with a lighter or match flame. 

  • Hot glue around the edges of the headband as seen in this photo:
 
  • Wrap the ribbon around, overlapping just a little each time around.

  • Glue on your brooches & wrap it up for someone special (or rock it after you see how awesome it is...and make another to gift).

Easy peasy, right? And it will make a great gift for your fashionista friends. 

Thanks again for having me here today. Hope to see y'all around blogland soon!
