When we came across this Eugenia Kim embellished gold-tone headband on a pinning spree last week, we fell in love. But without the means to purchase a $388 headband, we took the opportunity to create our own headpieces for less than $10. Pennies!
Supplies you need:
- Plastic headband (a 5 pack is about $2 at Walgreens)
- Hot Glue
- Gold spray paint
- Plastic critters
Brainstorm what kind of headband you would like to create. I made a buggy one, adorned with a butterfly, a killer ant and a cicada, modeled after the aforementioned pricey headpiece. I also came across tiny rubber babies at the toy store, and was inspired to create a perverted yet elegant Human Centipede-esque tiara.
Step 1: Glue the critters to a plastic headband.
Things should start to look funky!
Step 2: Bring the headband outside and spray paint the shizz out of it. Let it dry.
Step 3: Admire your work! The finished product should look great:
Wear it for your hair to become the classiest of bug nests. Or baby nests. Or whatever is it you designed.
