I’m on a cleaning kick with my craft stuff so I’m looking at ways to use up old supplies! Extra lace? Extra ribbon? Random pompoms? Time to make a cute Wintery hair band 😀
Normally I’m not a fan of cheap non-cotton lace but this roll was especially pretty so I’ve kept it waiting for the right project and this is where it ended up XD
Take a length of ribbon long enough to go around your head. Then tie it at the back and thread it through the eyelet’s in the middle of the lace. You need to have enough lace so that when it’s bunched up it will go from ear to ear.
Stitch the ends in place on the ribbon…
Cut two more lengths of ribbon around 20cm each. Cut the ends of one into points.
Fold the ends of the top piece of lace in to the center.
Stitch it in place. Fold the other piece in half on an angle so it forms the tail of the bow like this:
Stitch that in place too.
Wrap the thread around the center of the bow a few times so it bunches in.
Cut the tails of the pompoms to slightly different lengths:
Stitch them to the back of the bow:
And sew the whole thing on to the end of the bunched ribbon. Done!
Pretty 😀 I really like how this turned out, it’s so simple but really pretty. It actually reminds me a bit of mori girl fashion which I have a bit of a love for at the moment.
As I go through and clean out my scraps I think there will be more hair accessories because they are such a great way to use up little pieces 😀
