DIY Lace headband


Turn leftover fabric into a fashionable head piece. 
You can use any type of fabric design, (polka dots, floral) 
I used leftover lace from an old shirt.
Next time you decide to throw out a shirt, ask yourself this,
"Can I use this for a crafting project?"
Yes I am encouraging fabric hoarding haha!

Materials needed:
fabric 
(recommended, 2 inches in width) 
hair tie

Measure the length of fabric around your head with the hair tie expanded. 
Guess-timate about how tight or loose you want it.
Fold over ends to hair tie and sew or hand stich.
Finally, add some decorative sequins or leave as is.
And that's it! 
Hope you enjoyed this fun and easy tutorial.
