OK, I’m back with another easy D.I.Y project. I came up with this idea in effort to transform my old headbands. 1 day I was searching around the house for 30 mins in hopes of finding  a certain band but unlucky me 😥 I never found it. After going through all my junk  &  looking at the mess I made I was like: “WHOA I HAVE A SHIT LOAD OF OLD ASS HEADBANDS!” I thought what can I do with these?! This is crazy! I couldn’t believe how many bands I collected over the years. On top of that, I knew I wouldn’t EVER WEAR any of them any time soon. So, I did what any non-hoarder would do…I started purging bands left to right!

There were a few bands that were still good with a sturdy base but I didn’t like the designs anymore. Then BAM! An idea came to mind to remake my headbands. I wanted sometime easy structured but fun. I thought wire… gold wire! I didn’t have it in “stock” at home so when I had the time I stopped pass the craft store. I bought 10 yards of gold jewelry wire. I wanted to make sure I had enough 😆 .  Then the next day I started crafting & there you have it my new D.I.Y Gold Wire Headbands. I loved this project and I will be making more very soon. I also wanted to do a triangle design but when you have a 5 year old running around you only have but so much time to dedicate to making the small details workout in your favor SMH. I guess that’s it you guys. Check below on how I made the wire bands.

PS. I also made my debut as a plus size model LOL. I kid I kid but really this modeling shit is hard work. I hope to get better at it. Don’t judge me too much. I have no idea what I’m doing!!!!! I can take selfies all day but this in front of the camera thing might not be for me. I want to start showing how I would wear stuff but IDK. I’ll try to keep it up but behind the lens is where I’m more comfortable. Wish me luck!

 

 

Be kind. I’m new to this.

Top: I dissembled the fabric off the old headbands

Bottom: I wiped the bands off clean then started to wrap the jewelry wire around. You can make any design or pattern you desire. Then cut & tuck ends with pliers. I choose loop shapes and kind of disfigured shaped hearts.

Finished Project. Easy!
