DIY: Turning Your Brooch Into A Stylish HeadBand


I broke this beautiful brooch months  ago. It was one of my favorites, so I kept it. I thought I could do something with it. Then I found these headbands in the dollar section at Target and I had the idea!

Alright, Let's Begin!

Items you will need:



Hot Glue Gun
Headband
Felt
Jewelry Cutter
Brooch
Scissors(not pictured)
Craft Glue(not pictured)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Using the jewelry cutter cut off any backing that is left on your brooch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Cut out a piece of felt that is twice the size of your brooch.

Using your craft glue, glue the brooch down onto the felt. Set for about 15 minutes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Fold the felt over the headband, with the brooch on top. You will need now to find where you wish to attach the brooch on your headband.  Once you know exactly where you wish to place the brooch, glue the underside of the brooch and then attach it the headband.


Let the brooch set for 15 minutes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Using your scissors cut off the excess felt.


Depending on your brooch shape, you may be able to get a close cut. If not, do not worry. When you have the headband on, no one notices the felt, they only notice the brooch.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Using your glue gun, glue down lines on the back of your brooch. This will help your headband stay in place when you are wearing it.

Let set overnight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Done!
