CREATE … hairbands using vintage buttons | a simple birthday gift

Happy 2013 everyone!  I’m so anxious for this new year and new discoveries.  Looking forward to more making and exploring with my family, cooking, baking, learning, playing, hiking, growing food, loving the little things, spiritual time, and sharing quality moments with dear family and friends.

This week my daughter turned the magical age of three and I’m really looking forward to watching her grow and explore this year. For her birthday, I made her a collection of these hairbands + a few for myself. In this world of so much STUFF it is very heartwarming to create something meaningful for giving, but that also takes time and thought.  This little project couldn’t be any simpler.

This is certainly not a new project but it’s a super easy, meaningful gift for any ladies in your life and so fun to search for unique vintage buttons to use.  I found all of these from my mom’s button collection.

Vintage Button Hairbands

you will need ….

A collection of vintage buttons (with holes large enough for hairbands to fit through)

Hairbands in a variety of thicknesses (depends on the size of your buttonholes)

now … 

Choose a button and a hairband.   Slip the hairband through and secure like the image above. If you are having trouble pushing the band through, use a bobby pin to help it through.

That’s it … you’re done!

Hope you are enjoying some meaningful moments with your family in this new year!
