diy: leather headband

Did you know that you can buy bags of scrap leather from fabric shops for a few dollars? Well, I recently discovered this and have been thinking of ways to use it. The pieces are pretty small so this simple head band project is perfect, and only takes about 30 minutes. Since cutting my hair short I don’t really do anything with it, so it’s nice to jazz it up a bit!

You will need:
– small pieces of leather
– thin plastic headband
– scissors
– superglue

Cut leaf shapes from the leather scraps, trying to keep them fairly uniform. You can draw on the back of the leather, so I just cut one shape and drew round it for the rest. You will probably need about seven or eight leaves.

Follow the instructions on your superglue to stick them to the headband, layering each on over the other as you go – you should only need a few dots of glue down the middle of each piece to make it hold. Make sure it is thoroughly dry before you wear it!

  1. So sweet and I remember distinctly the joy when I first discovered the cheap scraps of leather though to be completely honest though, my scraps of leather have mainly stayed untouched – oops, headband time!

  2. This is so cute! And no, I didn’t know you could buy cheap leather like that! Good to know. I might just try my luck at one and borrow your idea to make a bracelet.
