Button Headband Tutorial

What can I say, I am a sucker for buttons!
{Hence, yet another button tutorial}
I think this one would have been cuter if I used buttons that were a bit more “fun” or colorful…
**Note: If you have a project and/or tutorial using buttons, please leave a link to it in the comments section to be considered for an upcoming
feature in my Button Round Up**
the Button Headband Tutorial:
Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

Supplies:
Headband {and plain headband @ Target}
Buttons of your choice
Glue gun and hot glue
Ribbon {similar color as buttons}
STEP ONE:
Glue down the first button in the center of your headband.
Working from the center button, continue gluing down your buttons.

STEP TWO:
Now that have finished gluing down your buttons we need to add the ribbon to keep the buttons and glue from sticking to your hair.  I suggest using a ribbon in a similar color as your buttons.  Also, make sure your ribbon is not wider than your buttons {you don’t want the ribbon to show}.
Trim the ends of your ribbon and then you are done!
This is what the underside of your headband should look like:
And here you have it:
My attempt at taking pictures of myself wearing my new “cute as a button” headband:
If you make a headband using this tutorial I would LOVE to see pictures of the final product!
ALSO, I will we doing an upcoming BUTTON ROUND UP, so if you have a project and/or tutorial using buttons, then leave your link in the comments section to be considered for a feature.

    So cute! I need to try this one. I love all the cute headbands but I'm always too cheap to buy them, for fear that I look like a dope and never wear them!

    Really cute! I love it with the simple buttons. It makes it more everyday. I could see making another one with "special" buttons for a special occasion. Love the blog makeover, too!

    I love that headband. 🙂 Very simple but chic project…a grown-up or a little girl could wear it and look sweet. I have a link for a project I used buttons with. The buttons ended up making the project for me! 🙂

    This is so cute. I have never been able to wear headbands…they tend to hurt. But this is oh so cute.

    So adorable! Yet it still looks so elegant in all black.

    I heart buttons too, especially covered buttons. I made this heart in an embroidery hoop recently (scroll down the post to find it). Thanks for the chance! http://sillypreciouspiggies.blogspot.com/2010/05/big-room-little-updates.html

    I wanted to write you one tiny observation in order to thank you as before with the beautiful guidelines you have shared here. It was certainly generous with you to deliver extensively all that some people would’ve made available for an electronic book to get some profit for themselves, certainly given that you might well have done it in case you decided. The advice additionally acted to provide a good way to know that some people have the same dream much like my own to find out a great deal more on the topic of this issue. I am sure there are some more fun sessions ahead for those who view your blog post.
