Emily is in my Patternmaking and Apparel class and she is super cute. I mean just look at her awesome headband, framing her bold bangs, sparkling green eyes, and charming smile. Just using some yarn, pieces of fabric and buttons, Emily creates whimsical headbands in a pinch. And you can too! Why spend twenty five dollars or more on a headband that you could quickly make yourself for half or less than half the price? Plus, people think you are cool if you wear things that you make. You can braid/crochet/knit yarn together for a headband (like Emily who crochets chains and braids them together) or you can buy some plain ones and set your hot glue gun to work (like me)! In this case, there is nothing wrong with using your hot glue gun- whoever made those twenty five dollar headbands at Urban Outfitters used one too. Check out this site for more inspiration!

This is not the best picture, but I thought I would post it anyways.
(I ended up selling this headband at the Wisconsin Union Directorate
Student Art Sale, thank you to whoever bought it!) I wrapped a
cloth headband in ivory ribbon and hot glued on some rhinestones
I had laying around and some roses that I made with ribbon. (My friend Sam
taught me how to make roses with ribbon- hoping to post a how-to on that soon!)
