Belt Headdress


Project level-very easy
Always wanting that beautiful head but not having enough money for those Kuchi head bands or metal head dresses?
 I found a cheap way to make one. On this picture here I have a belt. Yes, a belt. You know all those current trends for shiny belts on jeans(fabric,macrame,coins,etc)can be used on your head. I get all the broken or lost belts from work and they work so well for this. I used decorated bobby pins to keep the belt in place.

To make decorated bobby pins here is a link for making them @ http://jewelrymaking.allinfoabout.com/features/beadbobby.html

Tutorial Here

You can also add jewelry,pins,etc. to hair bands. I added a coin anklet to my diy hair band in this pic(probably can't see it)


Experiment w/it. I have also used fabric trim and pinned my flowers on it instead of my head.
