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 @

Tutorial Here

You can also add jewelry,pins,etc. to hair bands. I added a coin anklet to my diy hair band and a designed a head piece using a necklace here in this pic.

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

the costume goddess has a whole book on this @

Aurallynne has gorgeous headdresses w/flowers,falls and other beautiful stuff on them@


check out my diy blog on mermaid hair falls and I have a list of vendors there for more headdresses. Wed, July 5, 2006 - 12:18 PM
