weekend diy : upcycled leather headband

If you have an unused and broken belt, and don't know what to do with it, you can try to make this upcycled headband :) It's so simple to do and just take a several minutes. And didn't need to stitch!
You just need :
  • an unused leather belt
  • a plain plastic headband
  • super adhesive glue (ex. E6000)

Steps :
  • cut the belt along the headband
  • glue it to the headband
  • cut a 12 cm ( 5") stripe from the belt, and fold it to make a little bow, glue it slightly to the side of the headband, not into the middle
  • cut a 3 cm ( 1 1/2") strip from the belt for the bow knot, glue it to the center of the bow
  • make sure all the part glued tightly, and it's done!!

You have a 'new' headband :)  Please try, I would love to see yours :)
Enjoy your lovely weekend!
