This quick hair style and DIY accessory tutorial was inspired by a sponsorship from Blueprint Social.
3 Hungry little birds wait outside my door every morning. Now that I’ve added a newborn to the mix I have even less time to get ready. That’s why I love wearing headbands. They make getting ready in the morning a snap.
The only problem with the headbands I had were their drab color. You could tell I had’t been shopping in a while. Since i Love to Create things on my own, I used Tulip Neon Products to add a pop of spring color to my old headbands and I even made a brand new one.
3 DIY Headbands = 3 Different Looks
Chevron Jersey Headband
To redo my old gray Jersey Headband, I used Tulip Neon Fabric Markers and some other simple supplies. After the print dried, I applied a second coat to get the brightest color possible.
I love the way it turned out. The print looks like I bought it that way! To get this look, I just teased the hair behind the headband and popped it up into a ponytail.
Neon Felt Paisley
You can do any shape you want, but I think paisleys and neon go together perfectly. For this, I used Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint, black felt, and a thin plastic headband. You could also use black elastic and sew or hot glue the ends together.
To fasten the felt paisley to the band I simply cut another small piece of felt and sandwiched the headband in between the felt pieces with hot glue.
DIY Paisley Headwrap
To make my own headband design, I used the Dimensional Fabric Paint again. First, I measured from behind one ear to the other. Then on wax paper, I drew my design with pen on the non-waxy side leaving little holes on the ends to put elastic through. I flipped the wax paper over and traced my design with a thick coat of the fabric paint.
When I do this again, I’m going to try parchment paper because some of the wax paper stuck to my design when I was taking it off. After I removed my design, I tied thin elastic from one hole in the end of the band to the other.
I also received some Neon One Step Tie Dye Kit and can’t wait to create a Neon Head Wrap with it!
