Little Miss Momma: Button Headband Tutorial

Button Headband Tutorial

What can I say, I am a sucker for buttons!
{Hence, yet another button tutorial}
I think this one would have been cuter if I used buttons that were a bit more "fun" or colorful...

**Note: If you have a project and/or tutorial using buttons, please leave a link to it in the comments section to be considered for an upcoming
feature in my Button Round Up**

the Button Headband Tutorial:





Here's what you'll need for this project:



Supplies:
Headband {and plain headband @ Target}
Buttons of your choice
Glue gun and hot glue
Ribbon {similar color as buttons}

STEP ONE:
Glue down the first button in the center of your headband.


Working from the center button, continue gluing down your buttons.



STEP TWO:
Now that have finished gluing down your buttons we need to add the ribbon to keep the buttons and glue from sticking to your hair.  I suggest using a ribbon in a similar color as your buttons.  Also, make sure your ribbon is not wider than your buttons {you don't want the ribbon to show}.


Trim the ends of your ribbon and then you are done!
This is what the underside of your headband should look like:



And here you have it:


My attempt at taking pictures of myself wearing my new "cute as a button" headband:




If you make a headband using this tutorial I would LOVE to see pictures of the final product!

ALSO, I will we doing an upcoming BUTTON ROUND UP, so if you have a project and/or tutorial using buttons, then leave your link in the comments section to be considered for a feature.

Happy Crafting!

So cute! I need to try this one. I love all the cute headbands but I'm always too cheap to buy them, for fear that I look like a dope and never wear them!

Really cute! I love it with the simple buttons. It makes it more everyday. I could see making another one with "special" buttons for a special occasion. Love the blog makeover, too!

I love that headband. :) Very simple but chic project...a grown-up or a little girl could wear it and look sweet. I have a link for a project I used buttons with. The buttons ended up making the project for me! :)

This would look great with mismatched buttons as well. Such a cute idea! Thanks for sharing.

I have a weekly Thursday blog party especially for people to share things they've made to be worn. Stop by if you'd like! It is called Make It Wear It and I host it at TheTrainToCrazy.com

This is so cute. I have never been able to wear headbands...they tend to hurt. But this is oh so cute.

So adorable! Yet it still looks so elegant in all black.

I heart buttons too, especially covered buttons. I made this heart in an embroidery hoop recently (scroll down the post to find it). Thanks for the chance! http://sillypreciouspiggies.blogspot.com/2010/05/big-room-little-updates.html

Love it! I was totally inspired by this to use my vintage buttons for something I could actually wear, and I made this button and lace necklace!
