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.
