For those of us who haven't met, I'm Disney, and I've got a little craft blog called Ruffles and Stuff! I love sharing my projects and tutorials for all kinds of crafts, and I love to take old, seemingly useless things and make them into something beautiful! Guest posting on Ucreate feels a little like being asked to guest host for The Today Show or something, but despite being a little nervous, I'm super excited to be here! I wanted to show you a little tutorial I worked up, that I call the Cheater's Guide to an Anthro Headband. I saw these the other day, and absolutely adored them! What you'll need: A thick elastic hair band Ribbon, lace, or any other trim which catches your fancy A sewing machine (or needle and thread) Optional: Glue gun Embellishments 1) Your first step is to snip your elastic band in half and measure it. 2) The average headband is about 19", so add as much trim as it will take to equal 19" when added to your elastic, plus 1" extra for seams.
