4th of July Headbands

It's the 4th of July and I woke up this morning needing some festivity in my hair. My first thought was bow. Then I rememberd that with a bow in my hair, I look about 12 years old. My next thought was buttons and flowers. Below are my experiments.

To Make: Crochet a flower (see previous crocheted flower post here) using red string (the friendship bracelet kind), then tie it to a navy headband. It seriously took me less than 2 minutes. I'll be wearing this one today.

To Make: Cut a piece of wide ribbon (I used navy and white striped ribbon), wrap string (or twine) around the center, then tie to a headband. Again, less than 2 minutes to make. This one did make me look about 12 years old, so I won't be wearing it. It does, however, match the party I'll be throwing Daniel in September. I think I will give this one to my co-host to wear... She looks GREAT in bows and headbands!

To Make: Sew a button (I found a navy button with an anchor) to a headband. Again, only about 2 minutes to make. And this one also matches Daniel's party for September. I'll be wearing this one.

Happy 4th of July everyone! And happy crafting!

Don't forget about my GIVEAWAY!
