The other night, I was all done writing for the day and the family was still out. The house was quiet, and I still had a bit of energy left.So I seized the opportunity to work on a project that I had been mulling over in my brain for a while.
After a bit of looking at how the fancy ones were made, I picked up the plain package of stay put headbands (I used the goody brand) . The price was just under $3 for 6.
I figured I had to have something around the house already that I could use to fancy them up.
With just a few seconds spent searching one of my many craft supply shelves, I came across my collection of colorful buttons. I use to use these buttons to embellish the small crochet purses I made up for Courtney and her friends when they were toddlers.
I threaded a needle with black thread and then left a long tail when I started to sew on the button and one when I was finished sewing on the button. I triple knotted the thread tails together to make them super strong. I also went through the button hole numerous times to make sure the button was super secure.
I had fun playing around with color patterns, and my daughter was thrilled that I had made her some. She now wants me to make them for her friends birthdays. She also insisted we have another “crafting with Courtney” date this weekend so I can show her how to make them herself.
If you don’t have colorful buttons lying around, I noticed that Walmart carries a large supply of them right now. I didn’t see the prices as I knew I had some at home, but I am guessing even if you had to buy your buttons, these headbands would still be less than $1 to make.
