B Creative: DIY Hippie headband

Earlier in the week I showed you how to make a crystal headband, now its time for a hippie headband. I admit, I came to this trend late. Couldn't find the right hand band to work with my fine hair and not dig into my forehead. This is the simplest of headbands to make and all this is really required of you is to find an embellishment you love! I was drawn to the gold chain found in the ribbon aisle of my craft store but you can use lace, feathers or any other ribbon emellishment. Here are the steps:

1. Measure decorative ribbon/embellishment to half size of your head
2. Measure clothing elastic to the size of head and pull tight to create elasticity
    *note: elastic will typically just be a 4-5 inches longer than embellished piece
3. Glue ebellishment to elastic starting with center of each. Do not pull the elastic while gluing.
4. Glue ends of elastic together, let dry 5 minutes. Ta da!
