So yesterday we went to the mall for some back to school shopping. When we went into Claire's they had embellished headbands. Emeri saw one that was black and had a ribbon bow for $6.25 and I thought the price was ridiculous....we can make that.
Well we went to Walmart and got a 3 pack of wide plastic headbands for $3.50.
For the first headband we decided to do a black ruffled one. All we needed was the glue gun, scissors and a couple long strips of black t-shirt.
I ruffled the t-shirt strips with my sewing machine and then hot glued them to the headband. I did two layers to give it a little thickness. It was simple and only took a few minutes.
Emeri decided that it was a little too ruffly for her so we plan to give this one to my niece R.
R is almost 8 and she loves accessories. She will love the ruffles!
So the first headband only cost us the $1.20 to buy it. All the other supplies we had on hand.
