Rolled Ribbon Flower Headband


I have an aversion to homemade goods that actually look homemade, which is why I haven't jumped on the rolled or singed flower bandwagon until now. But when I saw Alisa Burke's version fashioned into a headband I began to see the possibilities. What girl couldn't use a new headband, after all?


I like that her version is simple and features a little sparkle from the beads in the center. As with everything she creates, she makes it look so easy to recreate. And, for the most part, it is. I did wind up twisting my ribbon a little more tightly than she did because I had a hard time getting it to wrap properly otherwise.

As a result, I'm not sure if I'm all that thrilled with my new headband. It looks a little too homemade to my excessively picky eye. At least I got some practice taking self-portraits while trying to model it.

I'm not a big fan of homemade looking things either (especially when it comes to apparel) but I love your headband! I also really your self-portraits! That is something that I really need to work on.

Looks good! I think a lot more store-bought stuff is trying too hard to look handmade lately, and yours looks better than a lot I've seen in stores!
