How to make your own hair accessories

This weekend was a relaxing one - I spent most of Saturday getting stuck into some awesome DIY goodies.

I'm sure you've all heard in the recent fashion media that hair accessories are going to be quite key this season - so instead of paying big bucks for cute pieces, why not fashion (scuse the pun) your own? Here's how:

You will need:
  • Elastic Band
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Buttons
STEP 1: Cut a piece of elastic (in whatever thickness and colour you want) to fit around your head comfortably

STEP 2: Sew the 2 ends of the elastic band together

STEP 3: Now choose some of your favourite buttons and sew them onto the elastic band - I suggest sewing them to the seam on the band - that way you cover up this seam.

STEP 4: Show off your new headpiece!
