Got Trim? Easy Scrap-Busting DIY Headbands

I was organizing my mess of a craft room recently and unearthed a small collection of trim pieces and other small scraps. Hmm… I hate throwing anything away, so what to do?
Why, headbands of course! Headbands are a great way to recycle and use up all the small scrap pieces laying around.
These little headbands are so easy to make, all you need is a bit of trim, ribbon, lace or even narrow strips of fabric and elastic of some sort. I used both fold over elastic and regular 1/4 inch elastic.
To get the measurement needed, you can use a headband you already have or measure with a bit of yarn. Since we are using elastic at the bottom, you will want to subtract about 1 inch from the measurement so the head band will stay in place.
Now, go make a few!

These are very sweet and easy to make. Would be great as a craft at a girls' slumber party.
Yes, and I'm sure they can be made with hot glue or another type of strong glue.
Fun and easy! My little ones would love these headbands! They are always looking for new ones. I will have to raid my scrap closet….if I can get in there! Organization posts? LOL.
Why am I not surprised you'd think of something like this to use up trim, ribbon scraps? So darned cute Jamie, great ideas. Do you sleep at night or think of things to make next day? Everything you make is always so great. Happy days
Ha ha, I do sometime lie awake thinking of stuff!
