DIY: Boho Chic Floral Braided Headband

In Fashion and Style on November 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm
Here is an awesome diy project from A Beautiful Mess using floral tights thats restyled into a boho chic headband. This would be a great project if you have a few pairs of tights that have gotten runs in them but you don’t want to just throw them out. Here’s what they did:

1. Cut the legs and feet off of the tights.
2. Cut the legs into thin ribbons (as thick or thin as you prefer).
3. Tie three strands into a knot on one end.
4. Braid the strands until the braided band is long enough to fit comfortable around your head.
5. Tie the ends together.
6. Trim any excess pieces.

Now you are ready to wear your new headband! You can wear it high up on the top or your head, or lower down on your crown. What’s great about using tights for the base of this headband is that the material has built-in stretch, so it can stay on your head without slipping off. Enjoy!
