Sunday Fun Day: Button Headband

Some days start in the middle of the night. Today was one of those days. Mid-August marks the peak of the Perseid Meteor Showers. When you have a sweetie that was an astronomy major in college, this is a big deal.

 Hence, a Sunday that started very early, had a flurry of activity early, and was never destined for huge projects (MAJOR disaster this afternoon trying to do a project that was just too much...more on that later). The button headband project was made for sleepy days like today--easy to make, necessary when doing your hair is just not a priority and ideal to wear when life hands you a day to beautiful to stay in the studio. I wore mine on a gardeny photo shot (more to come on that front too) and while augmenting our bounty at the farmer's market and it got a lot of smiles.

Big buttons, teeny buttons, nothing matchy...perfect for the weekend.

I started with some of my very favorite mismatched buttons,
a headband with an elastic back (you could also make your
own headband or sewing them onto elastic), an embroidery needle 
and some white floss.

I forgot to take a photo of the inside, but I simply placed 
and fit each button, sometimes overlapping them, and secured them 
through the button holes with the embroidery floss. I did 
not cut and tie after button, but rather went right from one to the next.

I love it--easy, fun, and it goes with everything!

Stay tuned to hear about my misadventures in spray paint
and to check out my current photo project :)

Thanks for reading and have a great week!
