Hi all! I'm Ashley:) This is my first guest post...so I am VERY EXCITED!!! My blog is called  Me and My Boys. Its a mommy/crafty blog. Documenting fun things my family and I do, silly pictures of my baby boy, favorite recipes and fun crafts/tutorials. I also throw a Tuesday Linky Party called Tell Me Tuesdays! 

Photobucket

I fell in love with link parties after my first day doing them...The idea of women sharing ideas, tips and life stories is so amazing to me. I love visitors and meeting new fun bloggers! So come on over and say hi!!

Some of my most viewed posts include... 








But today I wanted to share with you some ways to make hair bands a little more fun.


 First start off with just some scrap felt. Cut into the shapes you want...

I like to burn the edges of the felt that I'm using. I love the look of it so much better! When I burn the edges I go from the bottom, it makes the felt curl up a bit. Also remember that burning it will make the felt shrink up. I like to do it outside or have a cup of water handy..ya never know.


Pile the felt on top of each other and sew them together. I like to sew an X down it. Then hot glue the felt onto a hair band. Then WHA LA! 




Or for a head band....

Trace out three different size circles. I used just whatever I could find close by.

 Cut them out and stack together and you should have something like this!
I didn't really like the look of it, so again I took a lighter to the edges... then it didn't look
like I just got out of the craft room.

This is the look you will get if you burn the edges.

  Take your glue gun and glue all circles together.
Then add your jewel and glue in the midde circle.

Now that all circles are done, glue them to the elastic band. Make sure to overlap them...
I did about a half an inch...if you don't then they separate and stretch apart. 

 and WHA LA AGAIN!!! 
hope you enjoyed:)
