why haven't I done this before?

Today I made head bands for the new school year. I don't know why I haven't ever done it before. I had so much fun. In fact it's kinda addicting. 
I pulled out a bunch of scraps and my glue gun and went to town. I loved that I didn't need a sewing machine to make any of these. Which means I got to watch TV while making them, something I rarely do.  I might make some more tonight just so I can watch project runway. 

i love the versatility of cream

I made this one for a friend, who was over for a play date.  She wanted something green. 

This is my favorite. I might have to make an outfit to match. 

I had these flowers from an old hair tie for about 10 years. I'm so glad I finally used them. 

Do you have any cute head band designs you want to share? I'd love the inspiration, please leave a link in the comments.

They turned out gorgeously! Love the use of bottle caps!

They're darling! I love the purple one (that rippled ribbon makes my heart smile) and the coral colored hydrangea one is gorgeous too.

Hmmm... I wonder if it would be acceptable for a mid 30's adult to wear them. Hmmmm... I think I might give it a shot for myself!
