Ribbon Heart Valentine Headband


When I was a kid my mom would make sure I had accessories for every holiday, often making them. To this day I still like to wear holiday earrings, pins and hair accessories. As you can see this heart ribbon makes and adorable headband but it can probably be used for so much more, such as, a pin or a Valentine's day card.

 
 



Supplies:
  • 3 yards of 3/8" Wide Ribbon (I used two colors so you will need a yard and a half of each)
  • Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Headband
  • Felt



Cut two sets of ribbon in the following sizes: 4.4", 5.5" and 6.5"


Using a lighter carefully singe the end of the ribbon to stop it from fraying.


Align one set of ribbon so they are flush on one end. Using the glue gun, hot glue the aligned ends together in order, largest to smallest. You should have two sets of three.



Take your two groupings of ribbon and align them in a "V" gluing the right hand set on top of the other as shown above.




Take the smallest ribbon from the left side and folder it over and glue it to the top of the left side like above.



Take the smallest ribbon on the right side fold and weave it over the loop but under the base of the left side like above.

Continue to fold and weave the remaining ribbons. Use the following images to help you along your way:






 




Cut a small felt heart. Sandwich the headband between the front ribbon heart using the felt piece as a backer and hot glue in place.

Leather Earring Pattern Update

In October I posted a tutorial to make leather earrings. Well for Christmas I revisited this craft and made a few other designs for a few people at my work. This is one of my favorite tutorials because they are so easy to make and the earrings are light and easy to wear. I liked the new designs so much I thought I would share the pattern for them.


To view the full set of instructions on how to make these leather earrings, click here. To make one of the two pairs shown, download and print the updated pattern below (the bottom row are the new designs):

Leather Earring Tutorial

Why should leather only be used for jackets, shoes and purses? Medium weight or upholstery leather is easy to craft since it doesn't fray or crinkle. These leather earrings are quick, versatile and easy to make. You can even recycle those old purses or jackets that have damage since you really only need small amounts of good leather. I used 4" square leather samples and had plenty left over to make more earrings.

Supplies:
Leather
Leather punch (I bought mine at Michaels Craft store for around $10 but you can also get the from home stores like Home Depot or Lowes)
Sharp scissors
2-Large Jump Rings
2-Earring wires
Jewelry pliers

Download the pattern below, print and cut out shapes.Cut 2-of each shape in the leather of your choice. I used 3 different types of leather, don't be afraid to mix it up.



Pile one set of the three shapes on top of each other and carefully punch a whole on one of the ends. I punched the hole about a quarter of an inch away from the end using the smallest pun…

Washer Necklace Tutorial

Every time I buy furniture that requires assembly I always left over hardware. I take this hardware and put it in a jar thinking that one day I will need that extra nut or bolt. Well today is that day! Below is a tutorial on how to take those extra washers and make them into a cute necklace.


Supplies:
Scissors
X-acto knife or hole punch
Pencil
Small piece of scrapbooking paper (you can use the left over scraps for this project)
Modge Podge (or something similar)
Washer
Aleene’s Paper Glaze
36” of ribbon or cord


Use the washer to trace a circle on the paper, don’t forget to trace the inside circle as well.

Using your scissors cut just inside of the traced line on the outer circle. Note: you want to cut inside of the line and not on it so it fits on the washer and does not overlap the edges. If the hole for your center is close to the same size of a hole punch, simply punch out the center circle. If not use the X-acto knife to cut out the center area.

Modge Podge the paper to the washer and set asi…
