So I bought a black alice band (head band, hair band, whatever you wana call em) witha huge bow on it in Topshop and it cost me like 8 (i.e. Alot!).  As much as its amazing I thought hay! I can just make these myself! So heres what I've done so far

Im obsessed with blue atm so these are both blue Cheesy


The first one is a navy with squary bits, I twisted the ribbon around then made the bow, theres a teeny bit of glue visible on the bow which is annoying and one bit that went wrong on the actual band (you can see a sticky out bit)


Here it is on my very uneven parting


Then theres the blue houndstooth super large bow, this one was wrapped around so the pattern was visible.  The bow was made after hours of swearing and then discovering the perfect bow section on Martha Stewarts website (its still not perfect but its good enough for me!)


And here it is on my head, which is where it is currently residing!


Hope you like them, Im thinking of setting up an Etsy shop and these are so quick and easy to make- and Ive now found a place to get cheap wholesale bands.  Woo for wholesale!

These are really cute and I'm loving the blue! I've never thought about making my own before - I've always just bought them.  You've inspired me  Smiley
