So I have been seeing several tuts floating around Pinterest for giving an old pair of shoes some new life. I’ve been on a pretty crazy Pinterest kick for the past two weeks (almost every meal we’ve eaten for over a week and a half has been a pinterest recipe) so I wanted to give this quick project a try. I like the tuts that only take a few minutes and don’t require many materials. These are the kind of projects I work on in between cleaning the house, while Abe is taking a nap, to revitalize me and keep the creative spark aflame. So check out my new (old) emerald flats! This seriously took me less than 10 minutes.
Apparently you are supposed to do another coat of mod podge after the glitter is dried. I haven’t done that yet, as the glitter seems to stay on, but I probably will just to be safe.
Happy Monday! If you are wondering who the winner is of the A Nice Weekend Indeed Contest……. Miss Julianna Hendrix! She gets to pick any item from my etsy shop for free, and I’m even gonna take care of the S&H. Thank you to those who participated.
So anyways, I love spring, and so far it has been a wonderful one here in the ol’ Sunshine State. I’ve been searching and dreaming about accessories and such that woul compliment said season, and I saw this picture my friend Haley posted on Pinterest.
I thought this was really cute, and wanted to make one for myself. I’m not really into stars right now, so I made one with triangles. My current favorite shape. Ridiculous I know. Wanna see how I made it?
The supplies for this headband are simple, and you probably already have them lying around your house! Fetch you some scissors, white felt, a headband or ribbon, glitter, Mod Podge, a glue gun and glue sticks.
Cut out the shapes of your choice. They can be anything, and if you aren’t good at free-styling it, then just make a paper stencil first.
Take a paint brush and apply a liberal amount of Mod Podge to one of your triangles.
Sprinkle your glitter onto the triangle, and then repeat for the others. Don’t be afraid to use that glitter, you can pour the rest back in the container when you are done.
Let the beauties dry.
Once your pieces are dry, get your glue gun and attach the pieces to your headband. Make sure to space them correctly before you glue them, and be careful! Don’t burn your fingers like I always do.
For extra hold, cut small rectangles from your left over felt and glue them to the backs of your pieces, making sure that they don’t show from the front of your headband.
Your done! Now you have a shimmery spring headband to wear and make all of your friends jealous. Now for the fun part…. put it on!
If you like this headband but don’t feel like making one yourself, you can visit my etsy shop and buy this one! Not a fan of triangles? That’s o.k. Not everyone is perfect. I’d be glad to custom make you a headband with whatever shapes you like. Just shoot me an email at email@example.com.
