Faux-Floral Headbands


Well I hope that you haven't grown sick of all of my faux leather projects, because I have another one for you.  I am pretty sure that the fabric ladies at my local home decor fabric store are sick of cutting quarter yard pieces of this stuff (in every available color), so if you have grown tired, you're not alone.  I actually have a real leather project lined up for next week...so be excited.

I spent yesterday with my sweet sister in law.  We made ourselves some lovely little floral headbands with one of my favorite materials. I'm sure you recognize it from these booties, this belt, and this table runner.  It is just such a versatile material.  I think that the red and brown combination create a nice color combination for autumn. 



This red flower was my first attempt, and is probably my favorite overall.  

  

I had to make a black headband, and I love the gray centers to these two smaller flowers.
 


This last one is a slight variation on the first.  I like that it is a bit smaller.  I feel like the larger flower is a bit overwhelming on me (but perfect on my great model). 


Jess made several cute headbands of her own.  She tried out a brown and cream combination that I am really liking.  Thanks so much Jess for spending the day with me, and for being my model.  

I'll be linking up here.  I'll be back tomorrow with the Halloween costume reveal!

super cute headbands. I did a few bow style ones for my daughter but nothing as fancy as those!

I adore the leaf detail on the headband. So cute and such a perfect detail to add. I think I'll be hitting up the fabric store for my own 1/4 yard cuts of faux leather... Did you start with a premade headband or did you make that part too?
