Easy headband and headband holder

It’s no secret I love headbands. Before Blair Waldorf made them popular again, I wore headband all the time. But before the other day, I never made one. I was shocked at how simple it was.

I started by getting a plain plastic headband (metal would work too). Then I put the fabric. I wanted covering it around it (inside out) and used straight pins to pin it down. Then I got out the needle and thread and sewed it together. Then I turned the whole thing inside out and voila! Plain headband!

Since I wanted this to be a gift, I wanted to punch it up a bit more. Using scraps form another project, I added a fabric rose by just wrapping the two scraps around each other.

End result:

The next part of this project was even simpler. Though took it a little more patience because I had to wait for the canister of oatmeal to be empty first. Inspired by this pin, I removed the wrapper, painted the canister with a shimmery gold paint and waited for it to dry.

It’s the perfect size for all my headbands and bonus, it keeps the other stuff inside! Hidden storage is pretty awesome.

p.s. I also made the white headband. Equally as simple, the hardest part was tying the bow!
