DIY Jewled Headband

So this weekend I found myself once again studying every square inch of style magazines which contained pictures of the Golden Globes. Headbands seemed to be a very popular trend. I personally have always loved wearing headbands because it can hide a bad hair day very well. Just kidding (not really). I love headbands so much because they can dress a casual hair style and outfit up with just the perfect touch. I created my own version of the headband, which was very simple. 

The Inspiration


My DIY Version 

You'll need

Velvet 
Scissors
Measuring Tape
Different shapes and sizes of rhinestones 
Black Thread 
Glue gun 
Needle 
Elastic 
First, you place the measuring tape around the your head, as if it were a headband. Then, carefully measure how much of the velvet you will need.  Make sure you subtract four inches off of the total measurement so can place your elastic. 


Next you should cut four inches of the elastic and begin sewing with your needle and black thread. 


Once you have your base set up, then you should begin to position the rhinestones however you would like. What I did was first place them before I actually glue gunned the pieces just so I could make sure I liked the design. It would really suck if you had to start all over because you didn't like the design when you came this far! (Take it from someone its happened to in the past). 

And there you have it! You're ready for anything from a casual day shopping to a night out in the town!
