Braid Headband

I love love love braids. especially in my hair, whether it's a braid i do with my hair, or a headband braid.

love them.

the braided headband is one of my favs, it's so simple but it adds just a little bit to your hair to make it a little more exciting/colorful.

i'm going to show you how to make one. mkay?

(haha. like how my scissors say FABRIC ONLY? it used to be for me... cause i would use them otherwise when i wasn't into the whole crafting thannng. ;)


~ fabric (i used knit, but you can use anything, it doesn't matter!)
~ elastic
~ scissors
~ hot glue gun (not pictured... it was heating up!)
~ hot glue sticks (they're in the picture... keep looking! ;)

the steps!

cut your fabric in three long strips....

stack the ends on top of each other and slide the end of an elastic piece into it.

hot glue together.

now braid! and keep braiding....
and keep braiding.....

until you get this!!

(connect the other end of fabric the same way)

and wellll.... the knit i used... didn't like. AT ALL. no wonder i never use it... so i gave it to my sister! hey, she wanted one and liked it sooo.... works for me!

but woah.
i still wanted one!
so i made a turquoise one! i love it. i'm probably gonna wear it onnnn.... wednesday. yup. that's it.

let me know if you try it! it's so easy and literally takes about five minutes.

(ooooh. i also had a different way to do this with kinda the same idea... if that made any sense. whatevs. i'll show you tomorrow (scratch that! SOON!! I've been very busy with vacations and school and such... :)
