Ribbon Headbands

I love simple little projects, and this is one of the quickest ever! These little ribbon headbands are so much fun to make- just a few inches of ribbon, heat-sealed at the ends, and a few inches of black 1/4 inch elastic (the bow is a clip) and you're good to go!

Our craft store always has a bin of $1 ribbons, and this is a great way to use up odds and ends you just couldn't bear to part with (I'm not the only one hanging on to 8 inches of ribbon, am I??)

This could also be a good way to get your girls excited about the fabric store- I know Ernie would love picking out a pile of "favorites" to make into headbands, and since each headband only takes a few inches of ribbon, they're inexpensive too!

Here's the question, though...would YOU wear one?  Or would you leave these to the kids?  (Because I'm totally going to make a pile for myself!)

Hrm...I know I've seen ladies online wearing ones they made for themselves...but I tend to get headaches from headbands. ;-) Adorable, though! Could you make a tute?

I'm too old for something like that to look good on me, biut I would have worn one when I was younger. Pretty!

That's so cute!
I'm not sure if I can (or should) pull of a bow, but my kids can :)
