DIY Faux Embroidered Headband

Happy Tuesday!!
I'm spending this chilly spring day (50 degrees out) finishing up a couple of fun DIYs and brainstorming some summer projects! I'm so curious to see what summer looks like in 2020. I so hope I can see some friends and maybe hit up a restaurants patio (or two)! :)
Here's another DIY I created using supplies I already had in my house! I think this one is a new favorite of mine! I made faux embroidered "patches" out of magazine clippings and attached them to a headband! Read on for the full tutorial:
  • Thick headband - I used a plastic headband so if you have a fabric one, you may need to use more glue!
  • Magazines - It doesn't which magazines you're using - I found most of my pictures in advertisements!
  • Beacon Fabri-Tac Glue - You can order glue here!
  • Black Paper
  • Scissors

Step One: Decide what type of "patches" you're looking for! I wanted mine to all fit together so I went for a summery theme. Search through your magazines for images that will fit onto your headband. Keep in mind you will be adding a paper border so give yourself enough room!

Step Two: Once you've cut out enough shapes to fit onto your headband, glue them to black paper, leaving enough space in between each to cut out a small border. Let the glue dry for 5 minutes before moving onto the next step.

Step Three: Carefully cut out your "patches", making sure not to cut too much off the black borders.

Step Four: Decide how you want to arrange your faux patches on your headband and use your Beacon glue to adhere. Let dry for 5 minutes before wearing!

I hope you are enjoying your week! 
I will be posting more fun projects soon!

XOXO, Karly
