Button Headband

I've been really busy prepping for my daughter's birthday, but in between making decorations and creating a fairy cake, I wanted to share this quick and easy tutorial for making a button headband.  I've seen this done in different ways on a couple of blogs, but liked this one the best, using the stretchy headband.

My daughter has a ton of headbands, including some of these stretchy ones.  I thought these would be the perfect candidates to pretty up.  All you need is a stretchy headband, buttons and a needle & thread.

First, line up your buttons in the order you like (I just alternated light and dark colors).  Next, start at the top middle of the headband and begin stitching the buttons on, working your way out on each side.  Continue stitching the remaining buttons on, leaving a small space at the bottom without buttons so your hair doesn't get stuck.

This is a really easy way to pretty up a simple headband, and only takes a small amount of time.  I think I was able to complete this headband in less than 20 minutes.  I will definitely be making a few more for my daughter and maybe some for myself as well.
