DIY Headband

Me, Molly, and Angela

While getting ready for the triFABB event a few weeks ago, I really wanted something sparkly for my hair.  I only had about 20 minutes before I needed to leave, though, and the only sparkly headband I could think of was $38 at the local boutique.  Not going to happen.  Even though I didn't get to wear it that night, I decided I would make my own headband for future sparkly opportunities.  (And it cost me less than $4.)



Yay!!

Linking up herehere and here.

It looks so cute! Simple and cheap, the best kind of DIYs. I'm a weirdo, though, and headbands (or wearing my hair back for too long) make my head ache SO badly. Apparently I'm a delicate flower, haha.

Ashley! I just pinned your head band to my Pinterest "thrifty finds". I am not a crafty one so I will consider it thrift for now. hahahaha.

A $38 headband?!? Woah, that is waaaay too much money. I'm sure you're DIY headband was way better. I love how it looks. very princess-esque.
