Headband Refashion

Headband Refashion
Our headband had a flower that was starting to look a little tired and worn so we made it new again! This braided ribbon could embellish many things— a hair clip would be cute too! These headbands would make great handmade gifts for little girls to make each other! Woven Ribbon Headband Gather a headband and about 4 1/2 yards of ribbon. You can use any with — I chose 1/4 inch. Begin by finding the middle of the ribbon. Now bring the bottom ribbon up and make a loop and send it through the beginning loop that you just made by crossing the ribbon. Pull the right side snug. Now repeat for the other side, picking up the right side, making a loop and sending it up through the loop just made on the other side. Pull the left side snug. Pull right side snug. Continue braiding until you have a piece long enough to cover the headband. Bring the other side over and then trim. Hot glue ribbon to headband. Finished!

No-Sew Book Cover for your eReader or Tablet This is the most important and time consuming part of the project. Seriously. I spent 15 minutes making the cover, and two days picking out the book. Here are things to look for. 1. 13 part turks head bracelet in pictures Unwind the cord and work out all the kinks so it is relaxed. Find the center of the cord about 15 ft from one end and place a loop under the left hand rubber band. (The rest can be coiled up and placed inside the cardboard tube) Halloween Painted Jar Luminaries This isn’t the first time I’ve made luminaries for Halloween. Several years ago I made these painted Ghost Luminaries which are posted on FamilyCorner, these decoupaged Pumpkin Luminaries and this Candy Corn luminary which are both posted on Disney’s Kaboose. Today I made some colorful luminaries inspired by the ones I saw on this cute blog called Not So Idle Hands. While Emily uses the decoupage method with strips of tissue paper, I opted for what I believe to be an easier, faster and less expensive method… paint. Aside from the new luminaries I made (which I describe below), I also spruced up my others after unpacking my Halloween boxes.

braided jersey scarf December 15th, 2011 So I am really enjoying wearing scarfs this year. I saw a tutorial at Put Up Your Dukes for this braided scarf and pinned it a while back waiting for a time to make it. Well last night I finally got around to making it! I follow the tutorial at Put Up Your Dukes with only a few changes….mainly I used pieces I had (salvage bin at Joann’s is a great place to find cheap material for projects where you only need a little bit!)

How to do Custom Lettering without a Fancy Machine I keep seeing so many amazing projects that people are making using their Cricut, Sillouette or other "fancy" machines. While I love the results (and would definitely love to get one of those machines myself at some point), I often use an "old school" technique to achieve similar results. I can do my own lettering in just about any font, any size and any color using nothing fancier than a regular computer, printer, lead pencil and acrylic paints. It also works for simple graphics and pictures as well.

Project: Wooden Salt Cellar By Mark Frauenfelder A couple of years ago I whittled a wooden spoon as a thank-you gift for our family friend Valerie, who was my daughter’s elementary school art teacher. Valerie appreciated it so much that my wife asked me to make another wooden gift for Valerie’s upcoming birthday. I thought about it for a while and decided that a salt cellar would not tax my meager skills. For a PDF of this project, visit the build page on Make: Projects. Cord and Chain Double Wrap Bracelet The Braided Chain Bracelet tutorial that I posted back in August was so well loved, that I decided to do yet another bracelet tutorial. This one doesn't involve braiding, but it uses the same concept of incorporating some sort of thread/cord into chain. (By the way - Check out S&P's Facebook fan page for an entire album full of other talented ladies' versions of the Braided Chain Bracelet! I've gotten submissions from people as far away as Texas, Romania, and Denmark. ) I spotted CC Skye's Thompson Double Wrap Bracelet on about a month ago - I loved how the leather cord adds a touch of badass to the chain.

make it & fake it SO, after announcing the arrival of spring in Oslo for the last two months, we have now reached summer ('ish)! Woho, we have had sunny weather and 25C for the last three days so I have finally packed away my cashmere and turned to T-shirts. For me Havaianas and T-shirts go hand in hand, and I can't wait to use mine (indeed after I get my pedi done..). I love the classic Havaianas, for me they are a cult fav, but an old original can always go benefit from an update right??? flax & twine: Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorial Theses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones. I know Allie won’t want to take them off. Who doesn’t love the idea of diamonds glittering in your hair?
