More hair accessories

I've discovered that, with not much effort, hair accessories are so easy to make yourself. I'm always after something different to put in my hair (to make it look like I've done something different, when I really haven't!) and so these ideas are perfect for me.

My First Project - Hairbands

The other day I decided that I was going to attempt my very first "proper" project. I've been sick of buying hairbands, only to find that they either slip off or are so tight they give me a splitting headache. So I thought I'd make one that I can tie up at the back instead (plus it was decidedly easier to make!)

I found lots of tutorials on different blogs on making fabric flowers, so I decided to pretty up the hairband by making a ribbon flower as shown on Hope Studios' Blog.

I was pretty happy with the outcome (I honestly thought it would be a big failure) and am now all motivated for more creative creations!
