Braided Headband Tutorial

I enjoyed every minute of reaching into the closet and pulling out soft cozy blankets, snuggling up on the couch with my blanket and laptop to check my e-mail this morning... Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of temps below 40 degrees, but a high of 65, I'll take it! Anyway.... on with the tutorial. Here is what we are making today! What you need- Thick hair tie Six 1" strips of fabric Bulldog clip or safety pin Sewing machine (or needle and thread) Fabric tac I ripped my fabric strips so they were a bit frayed on the edges, personal choice. Tack each end of the braid just enough that it doesn't come undone .

Then tack both braids together on each end, be careful not to twist the braids. Cut your hair tie so it's one strip of elastic. Sandwich your elastic ends between the ends of your braids on each end, again, careful not to twist the braids. Sew over the elastic so that it's secure. Your done! Enjoy! My New Paint Method. Hey guys!

I will keep this post short and sweet because that is just what it is. Whoop! I learned this idea from my super talented father-in-law awhile back and I just now tried it out. I love it. My first step was to put on my base coat. Make: Projects – Doortop Stash. Top 10 Sites for Do It Yourself Projects : Planet Green.

From pinning flowers on one another to the classic boy/girl clothing swap – the boyfriend letterman jacket worn by the doting-but-chilly girlfriend – there is a long tradition to trading clothes within a relationship, but few so clever and well-conceived as this.

Relationship DIY: from Boyfriend Shirt into Girlfriend Skirt

Monoxious has come up with a creative way to make a typical button-down boy’s shirt into a workable skirt that actually (almost) looks like it was made to be worn around the waist by a woman rather than being designed for a man. Utilizing buttons in unconventional cross-patterns and considering drapes to avoid revealing too much leg below, one could almost imagine seeing this fad take off with fashion models on runways or at least clever store clerks trying to tie shirts around mannequins.

Hope you all had a great Wednesday I have a fun project to share today! I started with a 1×8 board from Lowe’s that I cut to about 2′ long. I used a different paint method on this board and I love how it turned out so I am going to share it with you in my next post. So for now… Here is my board after it is painted and ready to go. I also purchased 3 hooks and a pipe clamp from Lowe’s. My next step was attaching them to my board. Then it was time to attach the clamp.

I used a 3/4″ wood screw to attach it to my board. Finally, I added to picture hangers to the back of it and hung it up. I love it. I’m thinking these would be super cute hand towel hooks for the bathroom. Thanks for stopping by! I will show you my new paint method in my next post so stay tuned. ~Whitney.
